Seems like Nick Cave has had enough of being quiet. The standout track of CARNAGE, his new LP with long-time collaborator Warren Ellis, has to be “White Elephant”. Halfway through the menacing sounding song, the whole thing turns into a full fledged gospel hymn and we’re left wondering whether Jason Pierce is pulling the strings behind the scenes. It was then we knew it would be fairly easy to pick our album of the week.
This week in Bolachas Now Playing we focus on Flo Morrissey and Matthew E. White’s duet album Gentlewoman, Ruby Man.
