The Belle Jar- Union Station
Mar 5, 2014
He may not have the fullest head of hair in the music business, but Nick Cave has a pretty solid resumé. After thirty-five years in the industry, he’s still kickin’ and releasing new music with his band, The Bad Seeds. Their most recent effort, Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!, is nothing short of a bluesy-pseudo-punk masterpiece.
Cave, not only a successful musician, is also an author, screenwriter, and actor. He has weathered many genre and artistic changes over the past three decades, working with many musicians and even producing some solo work. Fifty years old and Australian, he is unlike anyone around today.
Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!, the band’s fourteenth studio album in twenty-four years, starts with a track of the same name and moves onward from there, passing through folk-inspired indie rock with attitude and occasional hook-filled, somewhat poppy cuts while still maintaining the feel of a great blues album.
Give a look and listen to “Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!,” the album’s first single, below!
