J Spaceman Pierce’s lazer guided melodies are pretty Flaming Lips-y on “Soul On Fire,” a new tune from Spiritualized’s forthcoming Songs In A&E, the first album since 2003’s Amazing Grace. (“Soul On Fire” also keeps making us think of Sebadoh’s “Soul And Fire,” for what it’s worth.) The track premiered yesterday on BBC 1’s Zane Lowe show, which explains the effusive dialog toward the song’s final movement (Zane kinda sounds like he has a movement, too, actually). Do you like your music to be far-reaching and epic? Yeah, us too. Step into the breeze and listen at Deaf Indie Elephants. (Thanks, YiYo.)
Songs In A&E is out 5/19 on Universal/Spaceman.
