Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: The Boatman’s Call

Nick Cave’s musical trajectory has generally been a result of his ever increasing craftmanship. After the frenetic, aggressive and abrasive early period of his time in The Birthday Party, Cave has enriched his song writing by adding sentiment and vulnerability to his already dark world view.

Arguably his most vulnerable album (until 2016’s Skeleton Tree) The Boatman’s Call marries Cave’s rich voice and open-hearted lyrics with stripped back and minimalist arrangements from The Bad Seeds.
