Bat For Lashes (Parlophone)

Natasha Khan creates her own universe and invites listeners to join her in it.

It’s likely many more will do so on the back of this occasionally powerful, occasionally beautiful follow-up to her messier debut Fur And Gold.

You’ll have to get past a few off-puttingly hippyish lyrics (and some off-puttingly hippyish singing; disconcertingly, Sleep Alone has both), but it’s worth giving Two Suns the benefit of the doubt. WILL FULFORD-JONES
