In a world inundated with music websites, you have to do something clever to stand out from the pack. Since its birth, Pitchfork has quickly become one of the most well-respected sites around thanks to great writing and beautiful photography. But it isn't resting on its laurels, and this interview (opens in new tab) with Bat For Lashes singer Natasha Khan grabs the attention as much for the way it's presented as for the content.

The feature is divided into 10 sections, all include breathtaking black-and-white portrait shots by Shawn Brackbill (opens in new tab). As you scroll down, these images spring to life in a flip book-style effect that is perfectly executed and gives the page true wow-factor.

You can also listen to a selection of Bat For Lashes songs as you scroll
