Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds:: Dig! Lazurus Dig!!!

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds will soon be back on the road in Europe supporting his most excellent latest release, Dig!!! Lazurus Dig!!! While the grizzly man instincts were let out to prosper on Grinderman, Cave must of had enough bloodletting for a little while and determined that it was time to return to matters of the soul: God, cleansing and shedding skin, and all else that entails. Prepare yourself for a lot of spoken sung vocals that do well in guiding the listener through the carnage of the hard city streets, captured in stark frame on the swaggerly title track. While the edge remains, the mystery is amplified throughout Dig!!! Lazurus Dig!!!, and exemplified on the transcendent meditative slow burn “Night of the Lotus Eaters.” No doubt, Cave has succeeded once again in showing that age doesn’t have to imply obsolescence, and where most bands need to just stop (yeah…Stones about 30 years ago), Nick Cave is in full stride.

Dig, Lazurus, Dig!!!
