A NIGHT OUT WITH NATASHA KHAN OF BAT FOR LASHES

Photobucket

Natasha Khan of Bat For Lashes has a thing for costumes, it’s no wonder since her onstage performances include Khan singing soulfully while wearing feathers in her hair and colorful paint on her face. Her vocals are bluesy and dramatic, and sometimes even Gypsy-like with a heavy collaboration of instruments including guitar, synths, harmoniums, all of which Khan plays herself. NY Times visits an East Village costume shop with the piglet nosed front woman and observes Khan as she shops then dines with band mates at Freemans Alley. And, there’s even a zing at Meg White of The White Stripes.

I totally saw her at my neighborhood bar.

Well, no wonder female musicians have a hard time- their peers are constantly knocking them down! So annoying that we can't support one another. That jab at Meg White seems so unnecessary.

I know. It's unfortunate isn't it!?
