With her new album, 'Two Suns,' Brighton, England's Bat for Lashes (Natasha Khan) has given 2009 what is sure to be one of its most incredible records. Using magical realism imagery, 'Two Suns' (April 7, Astralwerks) is an album that explores dualities on a number of levels, detailing two lovers, two planets, two moons, two sides of a personality and more. Musically, it's just as dynamic, featuring guest turns from Brooklyn psychrockers Yeasayer and the legendary Scott Walker. Co-produced by Khan and David Kosten, 'Two Suns' mixes autoharps with intense electronics, complex drum rhythms with lush keyboards and strings. Khan herself worked the majority of the musical magic, while illuminating every song from the inside out with her voice, sounding bolder, fuller and more impressive than ever before.
