Jason Pierce lifted Spiritualized from the ashes of psychedelic rockers Spacemen 3: the dark minimalism of his previous band was still in the air, although the British musician became infatuated with soul, gospel and symphonic music. In the tradition of studio-wizards like Phil Spector, Brian Eno and Brian Wilson, Pierce creates the most immersive, mythical pop art pieces, composed with obsessive perfectionism. Pierce has struggled a lot with personal demons and health over the years, so it was questionable whether Spiritualized would ever land back on earth again. With And Nothing Hurt, Pierce has once again surfaced with a beautiful record that somehow makes the impossible plausible. Spiritualized will show us the stars at Best Kept Secret.
