PJ Harvey Is Back With A New Album And US Tour

by BUST Magazine

PJ Harvey, The Hope Six Demolition Project (Island

PJ Harvey’s latest, The Hope Six Demolition Project, draws inspiration from her visist to Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Washington, D.C. over a four-year period. The opening title track is the closest we get to a straight-on PJH pop/rock vibe. The rest of this concept album leans toward the operatic and theatrical, with most songs having a militiristic feel (like “The Ministry of Defence” and “Chain of Keys”), and often stretching standard musical conventions to accomodate Harvey’s storytelling lyrics. Harvey has, once again, set the bar very high for herself. We can’t wait to see where she sets it next. (5/5)
