Bat For Lashes: New EP, more covers

cover1

Bummed I missed the Bat For Lashes show at the Great American Music Hall the other night. You just can’t get to ‘em all unfortunately. And judging by the snippets of live tracks she’s streaming on her myspace page it was a magical night. I say snippets because the full versions are on the Pearl’s Dream EP available on iTune’s UK store (no word on whether or not the US store will have it). Here’s the tracklist:

- Pearl’s Dream (album version)
- Pearl’s Dream (Cenzo Townshend Radio Edit)
- Sleep Alone (909′s In DarkTimes Mix)
- Siren Song (Live At Shepherd’s Bush Empire)
- Good Love (Live At Shepherd’s Bush Empire)

909 is apparently the pseudonym of David Sitek (TV on the Radio & Telepathe). Since we haven’t gotten our own copy here at NHT we’ll just have to share what BFL tracks are kicking around the old hard drive already (covers of course):

I’m On Fire WAY more convincing than the Boss, from the beeb’s Dermot O’Leary Show in 2007

Sweet Dreams The Eurythmics’ classic from Jo Whiley’s Live Lounge (also on the BBC) in 2008

Use Somebody A Kings Of Leon cover also from Jo Whiley’s Live Lounge, this time back on April 9th of this year

THere’s a video for Pearl’s Dream up on BFL’s website but it’s not nearly as cool as the video for What’s a Girl To Do from her 2006 debut Fur And Gold so I’ll post that instead!

Kings Of Leon’s Friday Warfield setlist

Whoever took the fantastic photos posted at Hippies Are Dead must have been standing right in front of me. Whether or not they were using an iPhone I’ll probably never know but Friday’s show brought out about a dozen of the hippest hand accessary there is within a couple of yards of where I was standing, re-inspiring my planned photo essay of rock fans holding aloft their picture/video capturing electronics.  I can see it now: posts with pictures of people taking pictures. Of course I’d have to remember to take notes unless the angle provides a view of the band as well (not likely, right).

Anyway, thanks to HAD for the shots, a real nice review and for knowing the name of every song KOL played Friday:

Taper Jean Girl

King Of The Rodeo

Sex On Fire

The only thing missing is my fave tune “King Of The Rodeo”. Hope they pull that one out tonight but the new material from Only By The Night is so strong that’ll do for sure

Quick note about the tunes

The mp3s on this blog are to give folks a little taste. Imagine they're those little pouches on the bag your Sunday paper comes in. You know, the one's with a packet containing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth once or twice. They are left up for a limited time. If you find something you like support the artists by dragging your friends to their shows and/or buying their CDs/records/schwag. If you are the artist (or their label/representative) and don't want an mp3 on here, please email me (mike@nowhearthismusic.com) and I'll remove it posthaste.
