As we gear up for a mighty basting at Desertfest, Arabrot main man Kjetil Nernes talks us through his 13 favourite albums


Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - Tender Pray
I was disheartened, confused and vulnerable. Broken down by the world and a danger, mostly to myself. Whatever it took to free myself of my own pitiful mien, to rid myself of wretched misery: the soundtrack was Nick Cave's Tender Pray. I love the little detail of 'The Mercy Seat', where he sings "I am not afraid to die..." but concludes "I'm afraid I told a lie". I love the pure magic of The Bad Seeds, and of course not forgetting the fabulous Birthday Party skulking about in the corners.
