Our LP of the month for May is the latest record from Spiritualized, “Sweet heart, sweet light.” This is the 7th album from Spiritualized and the first since 2008’s, “Songs in A&E.” The record is a near perfect follow up to “Songs in A&E” and we think it may be J. Spaceman’s best work since the groundbreaking, excellent “Ladies and Gentleman We Are Floating in Space.” There has been tons of press on this record since its release a few weeks back (on CD only). See some links to those reviews and interviews with J. Spaceman below. The album is finally out on vinyl (we’ll have copies this month) and we couldn’t be more excited. The first people to purchase “Sweet heart, sweet light” will get a free poster. And to top it all off, the record is dedicated in memory to the late, great Jim Dickinson.
