In this month’s Dazed & Confused, we accompany Bat For Lashes to the Joshua Tree desert for a cosmic photo shoot amongst the lizards and hot rocks. Natasha explains how the iconic landscape inspired her new album Two Suns, admits that she’s bored of everybody thinking she's a mystical creature who drinks unicorn’s tears, and why she felt the need to invent a blonde bombshell alter ego. If you want to get drunk on musical illusion look no further…
 
We also have the first major British interview for years with EYE, leader of Japanese noise legends, Boredoms. He takes us on a tour of his house and private swamp, talks about his influence on modern music, and introduces us to the Magical ArtRoom, an art collective changing the face of Asian creativity.
