Album of my week: Sweet Heart Sweet Light

This week I've got myself into a brand new album from a classic British rock band, Spiritualized.
It's a 70s sounding, very Lou Reed-esque, collection of largely up-beat but lyrically dark tracks - a combination I appreciate lot!

The first single from the album is what made me fall for the album - Hey Jane is an almost 9-minute folk rock epic that just doesn't seem to get boring despite its length. The long tracks continue throughout the album actually, and while that can sometimes come across as too self-indulgent to me, I don't mind it one bit this time around.

Here's the song that got me, hopefully it gets you too and you can then enjoy the whole album.
