Bat For Lashes Brings “Sleep Alone,” Marxophone To Jools Holland

By Amrit Singh / April 22, 2009 - 9:32 am

Natasha Khan’s presented up her song of the year contender in various states of dress, from Karate Kid and La Russoed to stripped and lo-fi. Each has been a good look for “Daniel,” although this straight-no-chaser take with her backing band The Blue Dreams is a reminder that this one would stand on its own independent of savvy alternate arrangements or nostalgia kitsch; great song, great voice, great performance. Natasha also performed “Sleep Alone” and demonstrated her Marxophone technique. She’s coming to NYC soon and we are psyched — I’ve laid out her tour dates because you’ll probably want them after watching this.
