[SOUND AND VISIONS] Immediately after leaving a Spiritualized show, it’s hard to know what songs were played or what moments stood out. Frontman Jason Pierce never really addresses the crowd aside from the occasional appreciative soccer clap, and eight-minute songs are joined with 12-minute songs before the resulting 20-minute songs are connected to lush 10-minute instrumental interludes. Looking back on Spiritualized’s previous Wonder Ballroom engagement last May, I mostly remember two hours of strobe lights and gospel singers and dropped jaws. I know there were sweet bits and soulful bits and rock bits and a distinct sci-fi buzzing sound that didn’t stop after I left the club. Drugs might have helped, but then, Spiritualized basically is drugs. Come ready to spend a couple of hours confused and weightless, and you’ll get an awful lot out of it.
