At the heart of Push the Sky Away - the latest from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - is a naturalism and warmth that makes it the most subtly beautiful of all the Bad Seeds albums. It’s not always apparent what instruments the band is playing: they may be traditional musical instruments but other sounds are clearly generated by objects unrelated to musical instruments.
What’s being created is a collective musical language that’s rich and complex. Push the Sky Away has a clarity and sweet strangeness that’s built upon the refusal to accept limitations, whether they be the traditional uses and sounds of musical instruments, lyric styles, or diminished spiritual horizons
