Nick Cave has always been a decidedly morose artist. Following the death of his 15-year-old son, Cave has produced a particularly sorrowful album in "Skeleton Tree." Accompanying this new release is a feature film, "One More Time With Feeling."

A big Cave fan, our friend Tug Baker stopped by Dad Rock HQ to discuss this intense singer/songwriter's haunting artistry.

And Mary Nahorniak, still out on maternity leave, makes a cameo appearance in this episode!

'Tuesdays With Mary' is a weekly feature of Dad Rock, a music podcast from USA TODAY hosted by Patrick Foster and Jim Lenahan.
