CAVE, NICK & THE BAD SEEDS - DIG, LAZARUS, DIG!!! (2LP)


""Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!" is Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' fourteenth studio album, and was recorded in June and July 2007 at The State of the Ark Studios in Richmond, Surrey, and mixed by Nick Launay at British Grove recording studios, in Chiswick, west London, and was released on March 3rd 2008. It would also be the last album to feature founding member Mick Harvey, who left the Bad Seeds in 2009. In several interviews Cave has stated that this album would "sound like Grinderman", his side project, who had released their debut album a year earlier. In line with this rough-and-ready approach, the album was recorded in about five days, an uncommonly short period for a full-length album. Critical response to the album was overwhelmingly positive, with reviewers citing this as both a return to greatness and a new side of the band. A review from NME described the record as a "gothic psycho-sexual apocalypse" and gave it 8/10, whilst Mojo magazine proclaimed it their album of 2008. Vinyl transfer approval overseen by Mick Harvey during Summer 2014, cut at Abbey Road studios. Vinyl is heavyweight 180 gram. Please note: this is a three-sided record. This edition, approved personally by Nick Cave, is finally available again on its original format." (label info) comes with download code
