Let It Die is the second album by Canadian singer-songwriter Feist. It was recorded in Paris during 2002 and 2003 and released in 2004. The album combines jazz, bossa nova and indie rock. Let It Die was welcomed as one of the best Canadian pop albums of 2004. It was nominated for three Juno Awards in 2005, and won two: Best Alternative Album and Best New Artist. A track from the album, "Inside and Out", was nominated as Single of the Year in the 2006 Juno Awards

Her first album 'Let It Die', is produced by Renaud Letang & Gonzales. Feist has been Gonzales' fellow for years. Part of the Canadian collective band, Broken Social Scene, Gonzales convinced her to come to Paris to record this first album. The journey started in an out of time, out of norm atmosphere, whose lush grooves are offset by a thoroughly enjoyable live performance, with members of the Germany via Toronto Kitty-Yo crew such as Peaches, Gonzales, & Taylor Savvy. The flavour of Feist's music isn't the sort that sets off fireworks and sets you raving about how much fun it is. "Let It Die" is the sort of album that is periodically hailed as being the real deal - no studio tricks, little musical polish, and a reliance on good songwriting and tunes rather than hooks. In other words, pure music. The star of the music is Feist herself; her vocals are front-and-center, and she proves herself a rare kind of singer.

Revisiting her sophomore album, "Let It Die," gave Feist the chance to give the album art new life - in more ways than on. There’s a lot to love about the release, what with 180 gram seafoam green vinyl and an original art print by Santiago Carrasquilla. However, the most striking component might be the reimagined cover artwork.

Let It Die is the second album by Canadian singer-songwriter Feist. A track from the album, "Inside and Out", was nominated as Single of the Year in the 2006 Juno Awards Let It Die has attracted a significant international audience. The album was originally divided into original compositions on the first half and cover versions on the second, though a reissue later in 2004 added a further original composition as the penultimate track.

Nearly five years removed from that debut, Let It Die finds Feist in a radically different state of mind, completely abandoning her guitars-and-strings indie rock shorthand in favor of folk, jazz, French pop, and disco accoutrements. While her propensity for serial genre-hopping makes it difficult for the album to congeal into a whole (Let It Die's scattered closing trilogy comprises covers of songs by Ron Sexsmith, The Bee Gees and 1940s vocalist Dick Haymes), it is nonetheless held together by her wistful song selection and an airy, summery aesthetic.

After reading all negative reviews here, I played my copy. Sounds absolutely fine on my Sony deck with AT cartridge. I would say it actually sounds as good as or better than the majority of modern digital sourced vinyl. Not a sonic wonder of course but thankfully not too compressed and quite smooth sounding as it should be. Apparently there were good and defective batches of this release and I lucked into a good one.
Yup, this one is garbage. After complaining to Arts and Crafts, I was provided with another copy of the same pressing. They also gave me a CD version, which of course sounded fine. What a waste of a good album... now I have two.
Don't buy this one. It does sound like they pressed 128k mp3s to 180 gram vinyl. What a waste.
my copy has a high-pitched metallic sound in the background that kind of resonates with high frequencies, making it really hard to listen to the record. hope it's just mine.
You still gave it 5 stars though. A bad quality release should be graded appropriately, even if you like the album in general.
Yup, mine has the same problem. Major disappointment especially from a 180g. What can we do about this? It ought to be remedied for sure.
same here.sounds like a 128kbps mp3...
Yes. I agree. I thought it was my stylus tracking but it sounds like a ring mod in the background. Other LPs sound perfect when I play them. It's a pity but it seems the Arts & Crafts International pressing has a fault and this distortion is horrible. My copy was bought new and is mint. It's one of my favourite LPs of all time!
I already contacted them, asking for a replacement. They said they would listen to it and send me a replacement, if it's just mine. Since they completely ignored any of my following e-mails I guess they realized, that it's all of them. Thanks for the nice info on record production though ;-)
Abandoned Electrical
Probably a bad lacquer made it to the plating stage. Usually this will get caught, but labels sometimes skip out on proper quality-checks with test-lacquers, or use terrible cutting engineers to save costs. It is worth contacting the label and letting them know. They won't fix a problem they aren't aware of, although they might not fix it anyways. Worth a try, especially with a bunch of people having the same issues.
Nope, mine has it too. It's reminiscent of a certain kind of digital distortion that occurs when you reduce the bit rate of something, so I think it has to do with the pressing. HUGE bummer, because I love this record and was super psyched when I tracked it down on vinyl...
Yes. I recently played the record once more. but once more i just took if off the record player after two songs cause of this noise that is laying all over the whole record. i bought it new, the price was way two much for that bad sound. i never heard a record like this. but 27,- euro are not a reasonable price for quality like this. and now i know, im not the only unhappy owner of such a copy. especially "now at last", this absolutely lovely piece of music is destroed the this distortion that makes me feel like i live in the 1920s.
I agree as well, just got someone's used copy from here on Discogs, it's this pressing and, well it's not unlistenable but seems badly compressed and distorted. Not ok. Wish I'd read about this before I bought. :-
I agree with the Bratquadrat. It seems my copy of this LP has a harsh, metallic distortion that seems to really affect Feist's voice and the entire bandwidth of the audio of this pressing. When compared to the iTunes 128kbps 44.100 kHz AAC file it sounds terribly compressed and way too crisp with this bad metallic distortion. What gives? I wonder if the previous release has this issue.
