Sleaford Mods is an English duo out of Nottingham.
Their minimalist punk sounds are prominent on their latest single “TCR”.
TCR stands for Total Control Racing, a 1980’s racing kit. Here it is a metaphor for a life going round and round with no purpose.
Toward the end of recording process Cave lost his teenage son in a tragic accident which affected the final mixes and overdubs.
The making of the album is documented in the new film One More Time with Feeling.
“Jesus Alone” is the lead track.
There was a time when musicians were the voice of protest, speaking out against war, racism and inequality.
So rare these days.
Yet here is a southern alternative country band, Drive-By Truckers, that I would never have thought would be on this website with one of the most profound songs of the year.
Perhaps they can inspire other artists to speak up.

Christine and the Queens is Héloïse Letissier.
