PJ Harvey Interviewed Today On Fresh Air

From NPR.org:

Singer-songwriter PJ Harvey just released her eighth album, Let England Shake, a mournful elegy about war and the political landscape in her native England.

The album’s topics are brutal and bitter. Soldiers, landscapes and limbs are yanked apart, “falling like lumps of meat / blown and shot out beyond belief / arms and legs in the trees.” In “All and Everyone,” death permeates everything — the air, the sounds “coming off the mounds,” even “the laughter and drinking water.”

 

Interview available on NPR’s website.
