NICK CAVE & WARREN ELLIS 'Carnage'
Regular price €26,00
'Carnage' is a new album by NICK CAVE and WARREN ELLIS, recorded over a period of weeks during the lockdown. Although the pair has composed and recorded many soundtracks together, and ELLIS is a long-term member of The Bad Seeds, this is the first time they have released an entire album of songs as a duo. CAVE describes the album as "a brutal but very beautiful record nested in a communal catastrophe." "Making Carnage was an accelerated process of intense creativity," says ELLIS, "the eight songs were there in one form or another within the first two and a half days." CAVE and ELLIS' sonic and lyrical adventurism continues apace on 'Carnage', an album that emerged almost by accident out of the downtime created by the long, anxious, global emergency. 'Carnage' is a record for these uncertain times - one shot through with moments of distilled beauty and that resonates with an almost defiant sense of hope.
