Osheaga 2014: Lorde, The Replacements, HAIM, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, & More

More than most North American cities, Montreal gets it right when it comes to hosting music festivals. Fortunate enough to have a setting like Parc Jean-Drapeau, located in the heart of the city, a five-minute subway ride from downtown, the Canadian city is able to pull off a music-and-arts festival like Osheaga with relative ease.

The 10 Best Sets At Bonnaroo 2014

It has to be a toss-up between Coachella and Bonnaroo as to which is our most iconic currently active American festival. Growing up in Pennsylvania, I found the earlier years of Bonnaroo somewhat mythic — I had friends who would make summer trips down to the festival, and they talked about it like it wa… More »

Nick Cave Albums From Worst To Best

The year 2000 saw the release of a three-disc Johnny Cash compilation with each disc bearing a one-word title indicating the thematic scopes of the chosen songs: Love, God, and Murder. One could do much the same for Nick Cave, if not for the inconvenient fact that, more often than not, he’s singing about all… More »

Coachella 2013 Weekend 2: Sunday’s 5 Best Things

The common refrain about Coachella dictates: “It’s not about the music, man, it’s about the festival experience.” With the dance/sex tents in full swing, dozens of corporate-sponsored hideaways at every corner offering shade and mild distraction in exchange for a few minutes of direct advertising access to your brain, and the untamed wilderness of the… More »

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – “Animal X”

A new 7″ single from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds was part of this past weekend’s Record Store Day deluge. “Animal X,” apparently named after an Australian nature documentary series from the ’90s, came from the same sessions that produced the band’s triumphant new album Push The Sky Away. The song is a bit… More »

Coachella 2013 Sunday: Wu-Tang Clan, Grimes, Jessie Ware, & More

SpaceGhostPurrp doesn’t really scream Sunday brunch hour entertainment, but he and his crew Raider Klan were one of the acts to kick off Day 3 of Coachella. Yet, he, Key Nyata, and the whole lot of them sold the kind of menace that is better suited for a dark club than beaming sun rays and… More »

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds @ Fonda Theater, Hollywood 2/21/13

Fresh from his album of the week honor, Nick Cave easily sold out the Fonda Theater in Hollywood by rolling out Push The Sky Away in its entirety backed by an orchestra and the children from the Silverlake Conservatory of Music. The concert was streamed live through YouTube and will be available to stream for oneMore »

Album Of The Week: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Push The Sky Away

Even when he was a fresh-faced punk, Nick Cave never sounded like a fresh-faced punk. Back on those Birthday Party records, he sounded like a wizened, apocalyptic rage-prophet. And over the course of god knows how many albums since then, he’s only grown into that voice. Cave’s records might not have the same world-blasted intensity… More »

Stream Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Push The Sky Away

Push The Sky Away, the new album from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, is a quieter affair than its predecessor Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! or the two albums that Cave recorded with his Grinderman band, but it’s not necessarily any more forgiving. Instead, Cave and his collaborators have crafted some lush, gorgeous songs that positively… More »

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – “Jubilee Street” Video (NSFW)

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ new album Push The Sky Away is a couple of weeks away from release, and today we get the video for their languid, sinister “Jubilee Street.” Cave’s old buddy and collaborator John Hillcoat (director of the Cave-written films The Proposition and Lawless) helmed the video, which stars the great… More »

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – “Jubilee Street”

I’m not certain of many things in this life, but here’s one thing I know: I am going to enjoy Push The Sky Away, the new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album, when it arrives next month. Cave has already allowed us to hear its first single “We No Who U R” (and showed… More »

Watch Sharon Van Etten Cover Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds For Triple J

Later this year, Sharon Van Etten will open for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds on tour in America. And on a recent radio session for Australia’s Triple J Radio, Van Etten covered one of her future tourmates’ songs: The haunting misanthropy ballad “People Ain’t No Good,” from 1997’s The Boatman’s Call. (SVE and the… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

On Friday, an asteroid struck Stereogum’s bank of computer servers, or something, and we were out of commission for the day. This was, of course, tragic, since it sent all of you home for the weekend without a single blog post with 20 minutes or so of very good music videos. But if you made… More »

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds – “We No Who U R” Video

The video for Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds’s “We No Who U R” is appropriately mysterious for the song’s title and Nick Cave’s equally as ominous persona. A camera follows a shadowy figure through the dark woods, never to reveal its identity. But when you take the track’s solemn lyrics into consideration while watching… More »

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – “We No Who U R”

Nick Cave broke up the amazing Grinderman last year — not exactly great news to any of us who thought that band’s two LPs ranked among the best of the last decade. But the promise of a new album with the Bad Seeds kind of mitigates that frustration, and the first track from the new… More »

Japandroids – “Jack The Ripper” (Nick Cave Cover)

Last week, we posted “The House That Heaven Built,” the excellent new track from ragged Canadian destroyers Japandroids. That track is the first single from Japandroids’ new album Celebration Rock, and the 7″ version of it, out next month, features something nearly as badass on the B-side: A cover of Nick Cave And The Bad… More »
