Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds- 'Push The Sky Away' (February 18)
The Australian bard takes some time off from writing movies ("Lawless") for the first Bad Seeds release since 2009's stellar "Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!" For their fifteenth album, the Bad Seeds look more and more like the more directly rock-oriented spin-off Grinderman, and "Push" will be their first album without founding member Mick Harvey. Cave has noted that many of the new album's songs were inspired by Internet culture, but we can expect more appearances by the sort of drifters, murderers, con artists and other such ne'er-do-wells who often find their way into his songs.
