Winter is coming, and doesn’t Bat For Lashes (Natasha Khan)- know it. The Haunted Man is the ideal soundtrack to a cold night indoors- she’s come a long way from the girl who by her own admission would bunk off school and listen to Nirvana tapes all day.
Anything she learned from Kurt Cobain and friends, though, is rather well hidden. Her main touchstone here appears to be her good friend Cat Power (Chan Marshall)- everything here at least the equal of 1998′s Moon Pix (though according to an interview in this month’s issue of Mojo magazine Bat initially met Cat after hearing her version of the Velvet Underground’s I Found A Reason, from the imaginatively titled Covers Record, which she put out in 2000- with the original appearing on the Underground’s 1970 swan-song Loaded).
