Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – “Skeleton Tree”

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have gone over many sonic changes throughout the years. When they first formed in 1984, they had a distinct post-punk sound, but have since shifted to a more alternative sound that is very distinct. On their 2013 album Push the Sky Away, the band got far more depressing, and the sound was very dark and dismal. Critically, it didn’t do too well, (even though I myself was a huge fan of the album). On Skeleton Tree, the band takes the ominous alternative rock sounds, and adds elements of ambient and electronica to really portray the very sad atmosphere of the album. It’s absolutely stellar, and I highly suggest listening to it.
