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