Life don't get stranger than this


MP3: Spiritualized - Don't Hold Me Close

MP3: Spiritualized - Borrowed Your Gun

NOTE: Today's contribution comes from Mr Spiritual Matt Giordano, who is getting himself ready for live jamage from the artist this post is written about. Have a good time duder, fuck yeah!

I'm a bit surprised with myself. I never submitted a track from that fantastic new Spiritualized lp that came out a couple of months ago, but since I'm seeing them in a couple of weeks, now's the time to do. What Spaceman and the rest of his intergalactic travellers have devilered to us is less a trip, more a journey. It's aching, and easily his most intimate of albums — instead of watching a genius at work you feel as if you're there lending a hand — and the results are glorious.
