My Father Will Guide Me Up Nick Cave's Back Catalogue

So the new Swans album sounds like The Bad Seeds circa '93 fronted by Pete Seeger's evil twin. Given that The Bad Seeds themselves are evermore merely pub-rock for English lit majors, this is very very nice. Slightly disappointing that it ain't Filth Deux: The Rebludgeoning, though we all knew it wouldn't be.

P.S. you'll note they both seem to refer to the irony of the 90s in a positive manner.
