Feist

Feist is my absolute number one female artist of the moment. Lucky old me saw her live in Melkweg last Friday night, and experience nothing short of divine.
Cute and quirky in sliver sequin sleeves with mini mirror ball hanging from her microphone stand this tiny sparrow of a girl stood on stage under strings of fairy-lights enchanting her audience. Completely down to earth, chatty (apologising for canceling a gig a few years prior due to 'food poisoning'...ah, the perils of mixing rock stars with Amsterdam), but we quickly forgave as she continued to mesmerize us with her sublime voice. Feist ended the eve by having the room all singing along with her, and it's so brilliant watching and enjoying an artist loving the moment as much as you are. Absolute dynamite.
Leslie Feist (born '76) is a Canadian singer-songwriter. She performs as a solo artist under the name Feist and also as a member of Broken Social Scene. She's collabotated with many other bands and artists on albums and has three solo albumns to her name: Monarch Lay Your Jewelled Head Down (1999), Let It Die (2002-3) and The Reminder (2007). Her style is a combination of jazz, bossa nova and indie rock.
My Moon My Man videoclip, which just makes me want to don a trench coat, head out to the airport find the nearest conveyor belt and start dancing!

And the videoclip to my favourite song, Mushaboom, a beautifully romantic song of an unabashed girly day-dream:
