There aren't many songs full stop that click with me as much as Laura does.

I had a fantastic listen to Haunted Man at like 5 this morning. The songs between Lillies and Laura are my least favorites, which is unfortunate, but from Laura on this album is great.

Cobbler, you heard Two Suns yet, bitch?

Yes, yes it is.

Speaking of Two Suns, Glass will always be my favorite track from it, but Sleep Alone is really making a push for my Natasha Khan pantheon.

Natasha Khantheon would be acceptable.

I've been waiting months for Natasha to play some East Coast shows and she will be this Fall . . . opening for Depeche Mode. So if I want to see her I gotta drop three bills and drag out to a shit hole amphitheater in the sticks. Don't get me wrong, I loves me some Martin Gore, but the new album is a bit meh and they weren't that great when I saw them 8 years ago.

The new album is streaming:

First Listen: Bat For Lashes, 'The Bride' : NPR

I'd say it's her most sedate work to date, really showcasing the vocals above all else. My first impression was very positive, but then again I love everything about her.

I've borderline hated some of the tracks she's released ahead of this. I'm almost scared to listen to it, going to be bummed out if it's as disappointing as I'm expecting.

I cannot fathom what in the pre-released songs could possibly have caused such a visceral reaction.

This suggests an album full of Lauras

Gave it a listen today, happy to say that it's pretty good. There were only 3 or 4 songs i didn't like much on first listen (2 of which were songs I was already familiar with).

What were the songs you hate and why so much?

I bought it today and had a listen. I'm not really sure how to feel. Objectively it's quite lovely and stately, but it's also interminable at times. It absolutely feels like a soundtrack or companion piece to a film (which she plans to make, having already made a short film called I Do), not an album. So I'm a bit puzzled at its existence, it feels tied to a film of some sort that doesn't exist; the entire thing, from the concept (bride is excited, groom runs off, dies, bride flees to find herself, finds herself, turns the corner) to the lyrics to the music and mood, to the flow of the concept, feels like a film. And the lyrics and story, given they feel so televisual, come off as kind of cloying on record. It would work well on film, but lyrically it just feels a bit basic/played-out.

I look forward to sitting down with it a bit more. The combo of If I Knew and I Will Love Again is really beautiful.
