i used up all my affection

Spiritualized just continues dropping albums full of blues, feedback, gospel, drugs, love, pain, intensity, the sun, repetition, catharsis. None of these things are new, this their seventh album. This is pure Spiritualized, striking and affecting, a brilliant mix of simple parts making something more. This is what they do.

(This is, though, the worst album cover I’ve ever seen.)

Spiritualized “Get What You Deserve”

Spiritualized “Little Girl”
