Having successfully made the move from the art house to the dance floor with her last outing, Let It Die, this Canadian torch song torchbearer edges a bit further in that direction with this odds 'n' sods collection, which is dominated by clever, wide-ranging remixes of tunes from that breakthrough disc. The irresistible "Mushaboom" is afforded four separate revisions here, and each has its charms, from the twee synth-pop-ization rendered by the Postal Service to the more low-end intensive hip-hop spin applied by K-OS. The tracks that Feist tweaks on her own steam are every bit as impressive, particularly her pared-to-the-bone acoustic take on the beckoning "Inside + Out" (culled from a BBC session recorded last year) and a surprisingly sweet, lilting cover of "Lovertits" (a typically lusty paean from longtime pal Peaches). The disc's most immediately attention-grabbing song might be "Snow Lion," a tune initially deemed unworthy of inclusion on Let It Die. With its languid, caressing beats and ethereal harp fillips, it could easily be this season's answer to "Mushaboom" -- as translatable to the ballroom as to the bedroom, offering pleasures wherever it's spun.
