They cut out her heart when she was a little girl

Bat For Lashes' Sarah, from her stellar album, Fur and Gold, has a brooding sing-song kind of feel, with the bass line and the drums guiding the listener along. Other instruments and voices join in along the way for brief periods of time and then fade and show up again. It's sort of akin to driving on a lonely two-lane road in the black of night. The rhythm section is the highway, it's always there, twisting and turning. The other voices and instruments are like billboards, popping up every now and again. Natasha is the driver and her voice is the headlamps, illuminating what's in front of us. Shine on, Bat For Lashes, shine on.
