I got the new record, Dig!Lazarus!Dig! when it got released over in the UK in March and it is easily the best record I have heard all year. Shit, man, to follow up Grinderman with this is like Nick Cave having a Roger Clemens like comeback (sans steroids, of course) for his career. Don't get me wrong, I cannot think of anything Cave has done that I don't adore, but goddamnit the brilliant Aussie motherfucker might have topped Murder Ballads, here. That is quite hefty praise, brothers and a sisters.
Unfortunately, we won't have it at my job tomorrow (the corporate and shipping people have been fucking us for weeks) so buy it wherever you can find it.
Lumped in with the new Flogging Molly, Gnarls Barkley, and Black Keys records (the new Breeders is kinda weak) this is turning out to be a good start to the rock 'n' roll year for me. Dig on the video which I have posted already. If you needed a reason to buy this disc (and Black Nathan concurs with me so expect a verbal lashing if you disagree) here it is.
