British Sea Power, Feist
In 2003, when noisy Brighton guitar rockers British Sea Power released their debut album and Canadian disco-folk chanteuse Leslie Feist was familiar only to indie-rock liner-note readers, this double bill would only have made much sense in a consideration of the underground's relatively limited market share. Two years later, supporting a new disc of swinging, swooning art-pop called Open Season, BSP makes for a much more logical musical fit with Feist, whose terrific Let It Die has just received the overdue American release its overseas success luckily guaranteed. It's called sophistication, and sometimes it stinks. But not tonight.
