I heard a new Spiritualized song the other day it caused me to have one of those rare moments where everything else just stops still, nothing else mattered for a few minutes at least but solely the song playing. Written by Jason Pierce who i read was very close to death only a few years ago during a stint in an intensive care unit. It sounds as if it could only be penned by someone who's had such a scary and life altering experience, i'm happy he made a recovery and on a more selfish note glad he's being inspired to write songs such as this.
You can hear the song here:
Also a recent interview from the Guradian:
