4/14 Bat For Lashes "Use Somebody"

When the positive side of a magnet is put up against the positive side of another magnet, the two quickly break apart.  So what happens when one ultra hipster artist covers another ultra hipster artist?  Amazingly, with Bat For Lashes covering Kings of Leon, the world didn't explode, but what we did get is a great, haunting re-imagining of the Kings song "Use Somebody" done live on BBC Radio.   As Sterogum says, Kings of Leon are taken very seriously in the UK and you can very much tell with this tribute.
