I’ll admit that I’m a little bit behind the curve when it comes to writing about the new Bat For Lashes album, The Haunted Man. It’s garnered fantastic reviews across the board, and today a brilliant feature got put up on Pitchfork, which as well as being a deeply insightful interview with some stunning photography, also felt like a who new way of using the internet.
I can’t match anything that’s been put up, but what I an do is collect some of the best bits and pieces together and share them with you all. First and foremost is the Pitchfork article. Make sure you scroll down rather than paging down, or you’ll miss most of the photos.
The music press has been very kind to the album. The Line of Best Fit gave it nine out of ten, and NME gave it eight out of ten. It got a good write up from Drowned in Sound too, but they don’t give ratings.
It also did well in the rest of the press, with the Independent making it their cd of the week. The Guardian gave it four out of five, and the Telegraph and the Observer weren’t quite so effusive both giving it three out of five.
Bat for Lashes plays Brighton Dome on Sunday 4th November.
