Spiritualized

Thursday, April 4, Bluebird Theater, 888-929-7849.

Jason Pierce formed Spiritualized after the split of his previous band, the influential and fuzzily psychedelic Spacemen 3. In the move, Pierce shed most of the jagged, cutting guitar tones of his old group and went much further into dreamy atmospherics. Spiritualized's full-length debut, 1992's Lazer Guided Melodies, served as a template for much of the space rock put out in the decades that followed. Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space, from 1997, nodded to the R&B leanings that help shape the core of Pierce's sensibilities, as well as the influence of 13th Floor Elevators and the Velvet Underground's proto-drone masterpiece White Light White Heat. Live, Spiritualized is able to create an intimate yet otherworldly experience.
