Dig The New Nick Cave

The new Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds album, Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! is playing here at the office. It's so good that it makes it hard to concentrate on anything else.

I'd been wondering what the next Bad Seeds would sound like after last year's Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds subset band, Grinderman, put out a raw and purile self-titled album about not getting enough sex, and this is not what I expected. There are Grinderman elements, but the overall record is way more pop-oriented than the side project or antything in the Bad Seeds catalog.

Check out the video for the title track/single below. It's a shame about the mustache (but then again, honestly, aren't most mustaches shameful, especially the ironic ones?), but the song is good and album is better.
