In-depths reviews and archive encounters with the reggae legend

With high-profile soundtracks such as The Proposition and The Assassination Of Jesse James…, polymath Nick Cave has carved out yet another potential career path.

Alongside collaborator Warren Ellis he’s mastered the subdued, unobtrusive yet sinister piano ripple and the occasional unsettling rumble, gilding them with rare, understated vocals.

Also previewed here is their score to John Hillcoat’s imminent adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, and it’s a thoroughly riveting journey. Fleshing out two discs are archive pieces from two lesser-known documentaries (concerning neuro-surgery and Cambodian sex workers, naturally).
