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?

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
