One Halloween, when singer Robin Gibbens was 6 or 7, he couldn't decide whether he wanted to be disco icon Andy Gibb or KISS guitarist Ace Frehley. In a move that would later prove prophetic, Gibbens opted to be both. "I ended up making my dad buy me an Andy Gibb and an Ace Frehley costume," Gibbens said. "I went out that year with Ace Frehley's outfit and an Andy Gibb mask ... Ace Gibb." These days, Gibbens is still mixing hard rock and disco, albeit in a more kitschy way. Gibbens is the lead singer of Tragedy, the world's premier all-metal Bee Gees tribute band.

It's not easy to resist the pull of it. As the sleek, stark arrangements mingling elements of lounge jazz, folk, bossa nova and Sade-like pop balladry unfurl, the voice of Feist is almost hypnotic. Let It Die, her latest album and debut CD in the United States, is a beguiling set of introspective love songs. Not much extravagant instrumentation going on. And the Canadian singer-songwriter never tries to blow you away with overdone histrionics. There's an appealing, smooth detachment to her approach.
