Black Music Disaster: Black Music Disaster

If you listen to only one organ-driven free-jazz album featuring members of Spiritualized and Spring Heel Jack in 2012, make it this one.

Reviews

Spiritualized: 16 May 2012 - Austin

Spiritualized: Sweet Heart Sweet Light

The album’s search for deliverance is timeless and ultimately uplifting.

Comprised of past or present members of – or contributors to – Hot Chip, This Heat and Spiritualized, About Group craft a sophomore release that’s somewhat improvisational in nature to surprisingly listenable results.

Reviews
