Featured Release This Week From Spiritualized + Tracks Top 30 Playlist

British musician and songwriter Jason Pierce (aka J. Spaceman) launched Spiritualized in 1990.  The band reached a kind of high water mark about twenty years ago with the album Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space.  Space is vast, and Pierce continues to mine it for inspiration.  He sports a vintage spacesuit as a visual theme for the new Spiritualized album, And Nothing Hurt.  With it's big, layered sound, it's fascinating to find out that J. Spaceman conceived and recorded the record in an upstairs room of his east London home.  He explains that there was a sound he wanted to capture, but "I had to find a way to work within the constraints of what money I had.  So I bought a laptop and made it all in a little room in my house."
