Dance-tastic new video from Feist: “1234″

Okay, Feist is just wonderful in my book. A little crazy methinks, but in a creative and adventurous way. She carries the mantle now of making these surreal videos where everyone starts dancing in unison, this fantastic dream life, kind of the antithesis of Britney. You can watch everyone twirl in unison and not feel guilty.

Towards the end when everyone is crouched down swirling around her, it’s like you’ve got a tiny Feist in the washing machine. And incidentally, where does one get a suit like that? I can’t tell if it’s vinyl or sparkles or both.

“1234″ is off her addictively engaging The Reminder, out May 1 in the US, and the previous Monday (April 23) in Europe.

  • Vinyl, I think, and wonderfully shiny! And that touch of banjo is exquisite. Thanks Heather!

  • There’s a little something for everyone in that video. It’s like an Up with People hoedown. Or something like that.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
