Electrelane Slays, Feist Sings on a Motorway

Recently blogged about faves of mine, Electrelane, roared their way through their set last night at The Paradise. They played a handful of tunes from the amazing No Shouts, No Calls, but won me over with their opening tune, "Bells," off of 2005's Axes (which was tracked at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio studios in Chicago.) Guitarist Mia Clarke, what a hottie. Dressed in a t-shirt that read 'Moments Like These Never Last' and tight jeans and heels, she wailed like Kim Gordon and scraped her guitar along her amp on many occasions, the best moment being possibly Shout's bombastic "Between The Wolf And The Dog." The encore was even more interesting, as lead singer Verity Susman led the girls through a rousing version of Bruce Springsteen's "I'm On Fire" from behind her keyboards. What a good show. 9.7/10.

Speaking of foxes, recently blogged about Canadian beaute Feist performed "I Feel It All" the other night on Jimmy Kimmel Live . . . on a moving bus. Go her. Watch her belt out this Reminder fave:

Yeah, you hit the nail on the head in regards to Mia. Holy hell kid, absolutely stunning! Unfortunately I was not unable to stay for the set, but The Blow one woman show was fantastic.
Great segue to the Feist video, that show should be amazing, in a couple weeks.
