Bat For Lashes covers The Cure :: "A Forest"
The layers of ambiance and the ineffable cool of the originals always make Cure songs a particularly sticky wicket to cover. That's not stopping a bunch of folks including Bat For Lashes, The Muslims, Kaki King and The Dandy Warhols from trying their hand at it. This track is breathy, darkly shining, and atmospherically lovely.
A Forest (Cure cover) - Bat For Lashes
Perfect as Cats: A Tribute To The Cure is out on Manimal Vinyl on October 28th. Sales will raise money for the worthy Invisible Children campaign.
And yep, since you asked -- pretty sure that's one of the worst album covers this year. What's goin on there?
