It's hard to keep Phil off Bat For Lashes duty these days and even after wrestling the 'Pearl's Dream' 7" from his sweaty palms he still reviewed it in a nutshell by exclaiming that "She's a right mystical bitch" and at the core of his casual misogyny is undoubtedly a grain of truth.. Here she's doing her synthy, Kate Bushy, tribal drummingy, dramatic wordy thing all over one of the album's standout tunes and it's really very good. I prefer that 'Sleep Alone' one but this is a well tidy bit of pop and you can tell she totally believes in it which makes all the difference in comprehensively marking her out as in a different class entirely from the plethora of 'kooky female singer-songwriters' doing the rounds just now.
