Grinderman – Grinderman 2
The second installment of a scaled down, but muscular man’s man rock supergroup of sorts (all of the members are also in the Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds lineup as well.) If you liked the first album, you will LOVE this album – it’s a punishing listen, in a good way. It’s way different from anything the Bad Seeds do, which is probably a lot of the charm in it. They seem to get a kick out of doing something generally different, just for the sake of being creative in a different way – which is cool. Like the last album, it feels like a themed jam session, in which they took the best takes and created an album. It’s super dope. One of the best rock albums of 2010 – Highly Recommended.
