PJ Harvey gathers lyrical and musical inspiration in Afghanistan, Kosovo and Washington DC, an unorthodox collection of raw material fused together in a London studio for her 2016 album, The Hope Six Demolition Project.

Several years ago, curious members of the public were afforded the chance to watch Mercury Prize-winner PJ Harvey record in a specially constructed space – part studio, part art installation. They looked on as Harvey translated experiences gathered on travels to Kosovo, Afghanistan and Washington DC into songs that make up The Hope Six Demolition Project.

A Dog Called Money captures the album’s emergence at close range. The curious, ever-observant Harvey is depicted in war correspondent mode, journal never far from reach, as she seeks out sights to document, experiences to share and fragments of melody to meld with her own. The ruins of a bombed-out Afghanistan building, a chronicle of racial divide in the US, and encounters with unfamiliar melodies and instrumentation are just some of the keenly observed moments that become song here.

The journey these creative fragments take from origin to recorded destination is remarkable, as is the degree to which PJ Harvey alchemically combines patience, curiosity, experimentation, human connection, collaboration and surprising joviality in bringing her deeply affecting work to fruition. — Steve Newall
