The Reminder

Genre: Pop; Lead Performer: Feist

Like her 2005 breakthrough Let It Die, Leslie Feist’s latest shows how this critics’ darling also woos regular folks. She has a sexy, slyly powerful, charmingly imperfect voice. She crafts deliciously catchy, acoustic-based songs with motifs recalling ’80s radio hits (from Springsteen to Soft Cell) as much as the ’00s Toronto indie-rock scene she began in. And her simple lyrics both seduce (”On milky skin my tongue is sand”) and court singalongs (”1, 2, 3, 4/Tell me that you love me more”). In short: The Reminder is another multifaceted gem. A
