Elsewhere this issue, we get the inside track on Spiritualized‘s first new album in six years from Jason Pierce and meet Anna Calvi to hear how she made her boldest and most articulate record to date, the outstanding The Hunter. We also reflect on a trio of 50th anniversaries, as Wayne Kramer tells Long Live Vinyl about half a century in the MC5 and we take in-depth looks at Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks and The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society – the latest in BMG’s Art Of The Album series.
