BAT FOR LASHES / The Haunted Man [2012]

Natasha Khan aka Bat For Lashes quite literally strips down for her third album, 2012's The Haunted Man.
Instead of getting blissfully lost in dreamy soundscapes, Khan opts for a more sparse sound design that packs an unexpected emotional punch filled with intrigue and a slight sense of creepiness.   Complimented with thoughtfully beautiful lyrics, inventive song structures and soul-baring emotion, The Haunted Man is a  record to be reckoned with that proves Khan isn't just another whacked-out singer/songwriter in silly costumes, like most have perceived her to be.
