Leonard Cohen: Massive Converge

Saw Leonard Cohen howel shuffling between N.A.S.A. and Peanut Butter Wolf at April's Coachella Festival. Spooky stuff. Must have rubbed on a couple bands that just released new material.
It's been forever since Massive Attack recorded anything new. Well, the "Splitting the Atom" EP - out last Tuesday - isn't that much music, but it does have "Prayer For Rain." It's trip-hop, but with a shivering Cohen influences on the vocals. Tricky would be proud.
Salem slammers Converge went extra brutal on, "Axe To Fall" - out Oct. 20. But somehow Cohen inflected singer Jacob Bannon with the gloom ooze when recording "Cruel Bloom."
