Alright, so I’ll fully admit that this edition of Twisted Music Video Of The Week is partly to promote our Bat For Lashes contest we have going on.

Bloody-Disgusting is excited to bring you a chance to win the Bat For Lashes discography, which includes Fur And Gold, Two Suns, and The Haunted Man (review). On top of that, we’ll be also including an LP of the Depeche Mode cover of “Strangelove”. To find out how to enter, head on down below!
