Welcome to One Washington Circle Hotel Event Calendar - A District of Columbia Hotel
The sleeve tells you so much about the process. Its a picture of a lone figure. Suited up and immersed in interplanetary protective gear, he walks out across unmapped terrain. In the distance, a mountain range towers over the roughly gridded sand hes striding. This is very much a solo mission giant steps into the unknown. Inside the helmet, theres all the uncertainty and madness that such a pursuit brings.That sleeve (designed, as ever, with Mark Farrow), comes wrapped around And Nothing Hurt - Spiritualizeds eighth album, the follow up to 2012s Sweet Heart, Sweet Light. From the opening lullaby of A Perfect Miracle through to the fading Morse Code at the close of Sail on Through, it painstakingly wraps layer upon layer of gloriously transcendent sound together to create a mesmerizing and cinematic collection of songs.There are points the thunderous climax of On the Sunshine; the spectral waltz of The Prize; the towering guitar solo on Im Your Man where the waves of blissful noise are almost overwhelming, where one can imagine the studios speakers vibrating themselves off of the walls. Which is an incredible feat when you discover that the album was conceived and recorded almost entirely by one man Jason Pierce, AKA J.Spaceman - in an upstairs room in his east London home. Sat in an edit suite in Whitechapel a month or so after finishing recording, Jason talks honestly about the painstaking, frustrating process of creating And Nothing Hurt. Making this record on my own sent me more mad than anything Ive done before. Wed been playing these big shows and I really wanted to capture that sound we were making but, without the funds to do, I had to find a way to work within the constraints of what money I had. So I bought a laptop and made it all in a little room in my house.Whereas bedroom recording is commonplace for a generation of musicians whove grown up with horizon-expanding tech, Spiritualized have long used the studio as they would an extra member of the ban
