Bat for Lashes has performed “Daniel” on a vastrangeofTV shows this year, and repeated the trick on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday (June 24). The song is taken from one of the best albums to be released in 2009, Two Suns. Hopefully singer Natasha Kahn can be persuaded to show off other tracks from the album on subsequent promotional stints.
Anyone captivated by “Daniel” may want to check out this series of videos that document how Tara Busch came to rework the song. Busch is an analog synth obsessive who deconstructed the track and brought along a film crew to demonstrate exactly how she did it. Her remix can be downloaded for the price of an e-mail address at the Bat for Lashes website.
