mp3s - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Nick Cave's Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus is out today. Here's an article and an mp3 for "Bring it On" from Anti-Records. The Duke reviews the album at Blogcritics. He quotes There She Goes, My Beautiful World (mp3), and writes paragraphs like this:
Abattoir Blues also houses at least two of the kinda love songs nobody else seems bothered to think much about. The kinda stuff you listen to and you're not even really sure if it is a love song. It's all a bit like that scene in Punch Drunk Love when Adam Sandler tells Emily Watson that she's so pretty he wants to smash her face with a hammer. It's a love that has an intensity verging on pathological.

And last, a Nick Cave rarity from Martin Scorcese's "The Soul of a Man:" a cover of J.B. Lenoir's ironic blues song, I Feel So Good.
