This Just In: The Space Between Us

There are a ton of excellent new releases this week from the likes of Iron & Wine, Queens Of The Stone Age, Oh Sees (they dropped the “Thee”) and more, but the release a few of us on Team Sweat are most excited for is the first-ever vinyl edition of Craig Armstrong’s underrated downtempo/neo-classical masterpiece The Space Between Us. This is probably the make-out album to end all make-out albums, AND it has Liz Fraser of Cocteau Twins singing “This Love,” arguably one of the sexiest songs ever recorded. The Space Between Us is also excellent for rainy days, late night wind-downs, contemplative walks… damn, I feel like I’m writing a personal ad here. If you’ve never heard this album before, you can have the pleasure of hearing it for the first time on vinyl. I’m gonna light some candles and hang out with my copy later. Don’t picture that though – instead check out “This Love” and this week’s incredible in-stock list below. -MLE

Craig Armstrong – The Space Between Us 2LP
Listen: “This Love”
“For his first solo album, The Space Between Us (Melankolic, 1998) Craig Armstrong brings together a collection of works from his career to date, including the haunting strings of modern classic ‘Weather Storm,’ which formed part of his collaboration with Bristol’s Massive Attack on their 2006 hit album Protection.

Elsewhere is a beautiful reworking of Blue Nile’s ‘Let’s Go Out Tonight,’ with singer Paul Buchanan, and ‘This Love,’ with vocals from Cocteau Twins singer Elizabeth Fraser. Early film work, such as Romeo and Juliet’s balcony scene from the award-winning score for Baz Luhrmann’s tragic romance, is also included.”
