Best Covers: PJ Harvey ‘Red Right Hand’

Music from the first five seasons of BBC crime drama Peaky Blinders will be collected in a new double album due out on November 15th.

Notably, the set marks the first-ever commercial release for PJ Harvey’s cover of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ “Red Right Hand”. The Bad Seeds’ original version has long served as the series’ theme, but in 2014 Harvey was commissioned to cover the song in an effort to make the series seem “less American.”

Primavera Sound 2018 #Thursday

It’s here! Thursday is the first full day of Primavera Sound 2018, with a line-up that, as we’ve come to expect, is extensive and impressive, and starts off with a bang on this day that features headliners such as everyone’s favourite Islandic avant-garde artist, Björk, with her latest album, ‘Utopia’ (2017), on which she collaborated with Arca, who you’ll also be able to catch at the festival; and elegance as music with Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, blasting out tracks from their emotional and a bit sad ‘Skeleton Tree’ (2016), which they’re performing for the first time in Barcelona. Also getting you moving between stages are Philadelphia band The War on Drugs, who, with ‘A Deeper Understanding’ (2017), have garnered as much praise as with their acclaimed previous album, ‘Lost in the Dream’ (2014), which had the international press kneeling at the feet of their classic rock; legendary band Sparks, that unclassifiable duo from Los Angeles made up of brothers Ron and Russel Mael, who present their 23rd album, ‘Hippopotamus’ (2017); the return of American hip hop artist Vince Staples; electronic and energetic pop from British trio Chvrches, with their much-anticipated new album, ‘Love Is Dead’ (2018); Fever Ray, a solo project for Swedish artist Karin Dreijer (The Knife), who’s also got a new album out, the contagious ‘Plunge’ (2017); electronica from Floating Points, also known as producer and doctor of neuroscience Sam Shepherd, performing live as well as a six-hour DJ set on Friday; Nils Frahm and his experimental electronica; the meloncholy of the all-women quartet Warpaint; iridescent psychedelic pop from New Zealanders Unknown Mortal Orchestra; and American artist Kelela, who impresses with her versatility and perfect adaptation to dominant trends in current electronica and pop.

Millors Discs: Nº 8. NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEES "Push The Sky Away"

L’australià ho ha tornat a fer. Ha parit un disc amb lletres majúscules. Un disc que sembla acaronar el cel anb les seves cançons lentes que teixeixen atmosferes elegants. La veu emocional d’un Nick Cave en estat de gràcia es fusiona amb sofisticades melodies pop i el lirisme poc pretenciós del textos. Totes les cançons són balades des de la inicial We No Who UR, passant per la sofisticació de Jubilee Street fins la més fosca Water’s Edge. Tot això acompanyat de la banda perfecta: The Bad Sees.
