Justin Vernon’s third Bon Iver album is a weird and wonderful thing
Spiritualized : Do It All Over Again
Jason Pierce has once again given us something truly timeless - and it's our single of the week...
'Do It All Over Again' finds him in an almost optimistic mood, (" You gotta hope for the best and the best looks great now baby"), nodding out in front of the TV and burning holes in his furniture. Injecting a glint of knowing pop into the heady Spiritualized
brew of gospel, garage and fulsome orchestration, this is classic Pierce - warm, desolate, wryly funny, moving and ephemeral all at once.
A promise: Of all records released this week - probably even this month - this is the only one you'll play in your dotage and find it as beautiful and evocative as you do now. Jason Pierce has once again given us something truly timeless.
