I could watch this all night.
For about a month I have been playing (Leslie) Feist's song 1 2 3 4 on a loop. I can't believe I didn't put it on my playlist a few days ago. It's the most exuberant song on her kickass new album The Reminder, which is out May 1.
Now Feist has done one of the best music videos I have seen in ages. I didn't think she'd ever top her video for Mushaboom (watch it) and now she has. It makes me want to sing and dance and be a pop star rather than write about them. We need more artists who - like Leslie Feist - mainline joy.
I love that you hear what's happening live as they film the video. Notice that it appears to be one take - that is until a sly twist at the very end. How did they do that?! Watch below...
Be sure to read this new piece on her in the Times Online. Did you know that Feist was Peaches' roommate for many years? Peaches is actually in the Mushaboom video, dressed like Stockard Channing in Grease!

my apologies to Pitchfork for totally ripping them off!
