Well, Nick Cave is certainly embracing new fangled technologies, hot on the heels of his recent Twitter Q&A session – “I am hating this beyond measure, and I haven’t even started yet…” – comes the Nick Cave Spotify App.
He has categorised his songs from the Birthday Party, Grinderman and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and the app will make recommendations, and you can always use the “randomizer” (randomiser, surely Nick?) when you run out of “murder & mayhem” and “super dark” ditties.

emotions covered, so far!
- super dark
- murder & mayhem
“At last, an app to make sense of the stylistic mayhem of my back catalog,” Cave said. “Original and without precedent — an app to help the uninitiated navigate my vast and terrifying catalog.”
Here’s an upcoming bonus: Some of Cave’s musician fans — including Lou Reed; Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan and Martin Gore; Devendra Banhart; Flea; The Pogues’ Shane MacGowan; and more — will share their ultimate Cave playlists this year.
