Rob: The Haunted Man, this deep new third album from the Mercury Prize-Nominated Bat For Lashes (aka Natasha Khan) highlights her growth as a songwriter who is not afraid to speak her mind. She got there by drawing and illustrating her thoughts, resulting in songs that are dark, sparse and filled with resonance and emotion. The album's two singles, "Laura" and "All Your Gold" show just how good she can be at making her point and framing it in melody and vibrant instrumentation.
