The new album from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds -- Push the Sky Away -- is understated and brilliant. It rarely goes near the crazed-shaman/preacher ravings that made the two Grinderman records (and much of Nick's early career) so satisfyingly over-the-top in the psycho-bluesiness department. But, lord oh lord, this record rises and falls and grooves and, yes, even thunders, in its own way, and never better than on this song, "Higgs Boson Blues." Here's a live version from a recent gig in London. Enjoy the slow burn.... and, yeah, that Pitchfork review nailed it perfectly: this is "On the Beach" version 2013.
