Bat For Lashes never really amused us. This is a pretty song, but still doesn't take us to the greatest of places. We hope her personal evolution will get here somewhere closer to Tori Amos and/or Kate Bush.

To make the planning process just that little bit easier, I have compiled my five must sees for the festival. YEASAYER [...]

The tribal drums and dark drama that first brought our attention to Natasha Khan's alter ego have been replaced with atmospheric electronics and somber melodies. Even Natasha's voice sounds different, at times straining to reach an angelic soprano level when [...]
Expectations can be a crippling obstacle for a musician. Whether by the quality of previous records, word-of-mouth enthusiasm, or just general interest, a new album can buckle under what an audience wanted rather than what it received. Bat For Lashes has been a fantastic act for two full-length records, including 2009’s near-masterpiece Two Suns . Critical acclaim, well-received live shows, and rabid fandom have all boosted the profile of Natasha Khan’s project. Therefore, it holds true that expectations for her third album, [...]
