Death is not the end​.​.​. A Tribute to Nick Cave

Brazilian blogger The Blog That Celebrates Itself invited a bunch of indie bands to tackle the songs of Nick Cave for a tribute album. These kind of projects tend be a grab bag of mediocre, really bad, and surprisingly great renditions. Death is not the end​.​.​. A Tribute to Nick Cave is no exception to that rule. It's quite hard to capture the impending doom meets love and kindness vibe of arguably the finest living songwriter.

Most of the covers of this album take the safe route by sticking close to the original. Three tracks stand out: Blackout Transmission changed the tempo of City of Refuge, in itself a cover of traditional that was first recorded in 1928. Box and the Twins added the Dresden Dolls to No More Shall We Part and Waves of Dread came up with a noisy garage version of The Mercy Seat. The rest of the bands struggle to keep with those at best.
