Video Of The Day: Spiritualized
Today, all the justification needed for this particular video is that it's my birthday and I love Spiritualized, and there just so happens to be a new Spiritualized video to be had.
Taken from the forthcoming new record (YES!) And Nothing Hurt (due in September on Bella Union/Fat Possum), "I'm Your Man" is another fine cut of that familiar, heart-achingly beautiful melancholy that Jason Pierce has been so consistent with over the course of his career as Spiritualized. The video is just perfect, J. Spaceman driving around sunbaked landscapes in a silver spacesuit, looking lost and fractured as only he can.
Yet another triumph from Pierce, and now I've got another reason to look forward to the end of summer.
