It's been a while since we heard new music from Spiritualized's Jason Pierce (a.k.a. J Spaceman). After the one-two punch of nearly dying from double-pneumonia in 2005 and going through six months of chemotherapy for a degenerative liver disease, Pierce is back in a big way with "Hey Jane," a chugging nine-minute song which draws from the classic rock of bands like The Velvet Underground. Also on this week's show: a new blast of guitar from Jack White's debut solo record, Blunderbuss; Yuck takes a try at shoegaze with its new song "Chew"; Timothy Presley (a.k.a. the insanely prolific White Fence) channels Syd Barrett for his psychedelic folk album Family Perfume Vol. 1; We Are Serenades creates beautiful harmonies in "Walking Home"; and a gorgeous song with a wistful message of loss and remembrance from Maps & Atlases. Jack White Album: Blunderbuss Song: Sixteen Saltines Yuck Album: Chew (Single) Song: Chew Maps & Atlases Album: Beware and Be Grateful Song: Old & Gray White Fence Album: Family Perfume, Vol. 1 Song: Do You Know Ida Know? We Are Serenades Album: Criminal Heaven Song: Walking Home Spiritualized Album: Sweet Heart Sweet Light Song: Hey Jane
