Wednesday, Feb 12, 2020 – Bat For Lashes and Lyle Mays R.I.P.

Bat For Lashes Interview

It’s vampires and dangerous love when we talk with Natasha Khan of Bat for Lashes. She’s been making dreamy, electronically draped moody songs since her 2006 debut, Fur and Gold. The English singer moved from England to LA a few years ago, but her music is still pretty moody and Gothic. On her new album, Lost Girls, she embroiders themes from movies and vampires into personal songs about love and loss. We’ll have our crosses up when we talk to Bat for Lashes on Echoes.

In the second hour, we remember Lyle Mays, who left the planet this past Monday, February 10, 2020. Mays was the original, and only, keyboard player for The Pat Metheny Group, and co-wrote almost all of their compositions. He also recorded several wonderful solo albums.  His collaboration with Metheny, As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls, is an ambient classic. We remember him tonight on Echoes with an hour’s worth of his music.  Read John Diliberto’s remembrance here.
