Bat for Lashes – The Haunted Man

The Haunted Man is the result of Bat for Lashes, the stage name for Natasha Khan, suffering from writer’s block after her second album. She turned to Thom Yorke, who told her to start drawing, and dancing, I guess. Thus her third album, which is maybe a departure from the first too? I don’t really know. What I do know is that I really like it. The Haunted Man tries to be a lot of things, there’s everything from piano ballads to weird electronica, which is what I think she’s best at. It’s exactly the kind of catchy, quirky, weird, beautiful, atmospheric album that I can get into, and you’ll probably hear more about it soon.

Favorite Tracks: “All Your Gold,” “Laura,” “Rest Your Head”
