download Grinderman -Kitchenette.

It must be brilliant being Nick Cave. To become some kind of institution without entirely selling your muse down the river. To have your big rock cake and eat it with a shit-eating ironic grin. To have built up enough trust that you can leap from novel to soundtrack to hysterically self-aware mid life crisis great big hairy priapic side project without too much risk of alienating people.

And when it comes to hysterically self-aware mid life crisis great big hairy priapic side projects, Grinderman is one of the best. The second album might actually be a little less hairy and priapic than the first – it’s positively gentle in places, has a track that sounds a bit like one of Eno’s doo-wop projects and doesn’t have anything quite so flat out lascivious as, for example, No Pussy Blues. But there’s still a lot of facial hair, awkward middle aged libido and self-mockery here. Like pretty much everything Cave does, this album is a fucking triumph.

buy it.
