Feist – Sea Lion Woman

Feist – “Sea Lion Woman”

From her 2007 release The Reminder, Canadian artist Leslie Feist provides this update of a song that was first recorded by field folklore archivist Herbert Halpert in 1939. Though interpretations have ranged from “C-Line Woman” to “See Lyin’ Woman”, this version carries the stomping energy of that field recording, updated with keyboard and synth touches that place it in context with Feist’s modern sound.
