Ville à Dômat: The New Order

Hit of the week: Nick Cave & The Bad Sees ‘Bright Horses’

Nick Cave could never be accused of adopting a whimsical perspective on life and how to live it. But the gothic troubadour’s world was plunged into very real darkness with the tragic death of his teenage son Arthur in 2015. The

awful event occurred during the recording of his previous album, Skeleton Tree – a release that trembled with the raw jolt of half-processed grief. It was extraordinary, consumed with emotion so intense listening felt like an intrusion.

After the shock comes the silence. Or so it is tempting to conclude, upon spending time with Cave’s sprawling and crepuscular 17th LP. Ghosteen doesn’t specifically address Cave’s bereavement. Yet allusions to the afterlife are ever-present. “Ghosteen” is the singer’s term for “migrating spirit”; elsewhere his lyrics are hauntingly specific in their imagery.

There are hints of Leonard Cohen in his sardonic old age in “Bright Horses” and its juxtaposition of a choir with Cave’s world-weary diction.

Music by Bergman: Twin Peaks 

Twin Peaks is an American indie-rock band from Chicago, Illinois. The band was formed in 2010.  Twin Peaks have released their fourth studio album and first in three years.

The upcoming effort is the official follow-up to 2016’s Down in Heaven. It also follows the Chicago outfit’s Sweet ’17 Singles compilation series. According to a statement, Lookout Low is Twin Peaks’ “most deliberate and seamless” LP, and dubbed a “collaborative triumph” thanks to each individual members’ increased involvement in the studio.

Music by Bergman: Dope Lemon

The name Angus Stone holds a lot of sway. The New South Welsh songwriter has achieved global popularity as one half of the brother-sister duo, Angus & Julia Stone. The Stones have now released four successive ARIA top ten albums while also establishing a rabid fanbase in Western Europe.

However, despite the nominal leverage, Angus Stone prefers to escape into an alias for his solo work. Smooth Big Cat is the second full-length release from his Dope Lemon project. The hirsute singer-songwriter’s debut solo effort, Smoking Gun, was credited to another alias, Lady of the Sunshine; 2012’s Broken Brights is the only release to sport his birth name.

 

Best Covers: Karen O & Danger Mouse “Perfect Day”

Earlier this year, Karen O and Danger Mouse released a collaborative album, Lux Prima. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs leader and producer recently shared a documentaryabout the making of the album, and they also recently stopped by the SiriusXMU studios for a session, where they covered a Lou Reed classic.

Naturally, O is a Reed fan — she helped induct the late musician into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame back in 2015 — and her and Danger Mouse covered “Perfect Day” for the session. O and Danger Mouse’s take on the track is strait-laced but impactful.
