BoinkMusic: Bat for Lashes

While it may be one of the lesser concerns when preparing to have sex, music can play a role in making or breaking the mood. Of course, if you spend half the evening combing through your vast record collection, and the only sound you’re likely to hear is that of your lover walking out the door.

Boinkology wants you to get laid, so we’re taking the guesswork out and giving you our own handpicked selections of the latest and greatest new tracks to download and get down to. Every Friday, Camille Acey brings you BoinkMusic: music you don’t know, but should definitely be fucking to.

With their recent album and tour schedule, the all-female quartet, Bat for Lashes, has joined the cavalcade of badass British broads rolling out music this year. So it seems a bit ironic that they’d cover a song from one of the most quintessentially American singers of our time, but they did it and they did it well. After one listen to this track, the next time an American hears that the British are coming, I think they’ll take it as good news.

Specimen: Bat for Lashes – I’m On Fire (Bruce Springsteen cover, unreleased)

Description: This slow and breathy track with sparse instrumentation brings new life to the song; whereas the Springsteen version sounds rumbling, brash, American, and aggressive, this cover is dark, mysterious, and oozing with sex.

Hypothesis: This beautiful cover should definitely help you put a new spin on your old routine.
