Jam of the Week: Nirvana

nirvana

Artist: Nirvana

Album: In Utero

Genre: Grunge

Date: 1993

Sound: The Wild Mind of Kurt Cobain

Cool Stuff: It’s the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s In Utero. Sure their breakthrough LP Nevermind gets all the love, but it’s hard to deny how amazing this album is. The listener delves deeper into the twisted mind of band leader Kurt Cobain, and is graced with an album that’s as artistically compelling as it is loud and badass. It’s almost the opposite of Nevermind, from it’s writing, performance, and the production from his holiness Steve Albini. Unfortunately, this would be the last work we’d see from Kurt and the boys, as he took his life the next year, at the young age of 27.
