Who's Feist you ask? This Canadian-born, French-based singer is nostalgic-sounding with a modern twist—mixing jazz, R&B and pop. Leslie Feist fronts her eponymous band with an effortless, mellow charm (reminiscent of Sade and Jem) that makes the music syrupy-sweet. But the the ease with which she sings belies the underlying intelligent lyrics, resulting in a seductive, sophisticated sound that is lacking in so many of today's pop tarts. Prior to "Feist" Leslie was the guest vocalist for the [underrated] Norwegian folkies "Kings of Convenience."
