It's Time to Bat Your Lashes

Meet Natasha Khan, aka Bat for Lashes. I watched her 48-minute documentary this afternoon, and she is pretty much the bees knees. You can watch a documentary of the making of her 2009 album Two Suns for free on Pitchfork for *one week only*, so click here to watch it before it's gone!

Here's the video for "Pearl's Dream", which will undoubtedly be in my top songs of 2009 list (if the vid below doesn't play click here to go to you tube).

Back to work on the Halloween costumes! I swear, I've had more injuries from making these costumes than 4 years of field hockey (sans broken nose). I have poked myself with many a needle while sewing, gotten numerous papercuts while putting together BK's Eagle Lord headpiece, and burned myself with countless globs of hot glue (hotter than hell's hot tub ya'll). I will need a mini-vacay after these masterpieces are complete - good thing yet another bogus federal holiday is coming up in November!

Hope you enjoyed the Bat for Lashes video. Natasha Khan is my second-favorite saucy indie chick (next to Emily Haines).

Have a spook-tacular Halloween! Sorry, had to say it...

I've been liking Bat for Lashes for a couple of months now...great pick. And you know who else I am loving? The Big Dominos.

Yes! The Big Pink is great... my fave is "Velvet", although the whole album is good :)
