Feist: Bush Hall, London
Caroline Sullivan, The Guardian, 6 July 2004
THIS VENUE has recently hosted a succession of newish female songwriters — Polly Paulusma, Jolie Holland -—who are doing a good job of making Dido seem even more tepid than she already does. Feist, a breathy Canadian, brings a bit of cocktail-lounge glamour to the party, but she also has a hardiness that will work in her favour. Maybe "hardy" is the wrong word, though, for someone who once rapped under the name Bitch Lap-Lap, and shares a flat with the terrifying rapper Peaches.
