Nick Cave and Mermaids

20 Feb

I’ve got a bunch of interviews and tidbits to post on here, but thought I would pause right now to share the amazing fact that Nick Cave, whom I’ve loved since I was a teenager and has probably been one of the biggest influences on my entire sensibility, ever, released a brand-new album on Monday called Push the Sky Away that features a song called MERMAIDS.


And it’s beautiful:

Honestly, I would try to interview him for this blog but even if I could manage that, which I probably couldn’t, I would probably pass out and die.

If you don’t know Nick Cave and his music, here are two of my favorite songs:

More mermaids tomorrow!

    Hmm I personally, definatly find his mermaid song rather crude.

    His music is exquisite, but he’s a little crabby in person. Maybe better to leave that to your imagination.

    The opening lines to Mermaids is one of the more WTF moments I’ve had listening to Mr. Cave. That said, I’m going to the Bad Seeds show this Friday and I can’t wait 🙂
