New Buffalo [Somewhere, Anywhere]

On Feist's latest discography is the title 1234, written by Sally Seltmann, a.k.a. New Buffalo.

The folk nuances of Seltmann's soft-hearted down-under accent combine with keyboards, and manifestations of digital samples and electronic elements.

The hypnotic sonic effect of panned vocal harmonies highlight Cheer Me Up Thank You, on her 2007 second full-length project Somewhere, Anywhere. The panning harmony returns just before the chorus, then sweet soprano notes carry the imagery of a heart drifting through the paradise of romance:

wild flowers growing in the park
summertime, and it melts into dark
dancing together at night until two
you're cheering me up and I'm thanking you
