Feist's New Deal


Before I have a wife, 2.5 kids and paint my tye-die picket fence white, I will successfully “out” each and every indie-rocker with at least one foot in the jamband world. Not because I don’t like indie-rock, jambands and/or that melodic middle ground between the two genres, but because I think it's silly that people pretend to like only one style of music just because it’s playing at the cool kids table. With that being said, today’s post takes us way back to 2003, when Leslie Feist had a one night stand in jambandia that resulted a co-composition with fellow Canadians The New Deal. Yes that New Deal and yes that Leslie Feist.

For those of you unfamiliar with Feist, she is a key member of the Broken Social Scene camp (perhaps my favorite indie-rock collective) and is currently featured in that infectious iPod Nano commercial. So, without further adieu, here is a link to the song Feist recorded with the New Deal on their final studio album Gone Gone Gone.

I personally think it is pretty fantastic and encourage everyone to purchase a copy here.

why "final" album? Sure, they have no plans to record and they tour infrequently, but they are still a band!
