BAT FOR LASHES - Fur and Gold

bat%20for%20lashes-fur%20and%20gold.jpgLet's get this out of the way: Bat For Lashes' Natasha Khan sounds a lot like Bjork. Ah, but which Bjork? With the Icelandic icon currently exploring life as some kind of walking technicolour apple, it's easy to understand why so many Brits are nuts for Bat For Lashes. On Fur and Gold, Khan displays a directness that many of the artists to which she's compared (Bjork, Kate Bush, Tori Amos) have forsaken, all while retaining an air of unpredictability. Handclaps, harps, and piano create a translucent fabric that dresses but never obscures the exquisite centerpiece of this confident debut: Khan's voice.

I love this album. Natasha Khan is like a mix of Bjork, Joanna Newsom (I don't know why, but she is) and dreamy originality. Too bad I can't go to her upcoming show!
