It’s been a loooong time between Spoon records, although it hasn’t stopped Britt Daniel from contributing to my iPod, with Divine Fits’ debut album giving me a goddamn heart attack every time it comes on. But between flipping through ‘Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga’, ‘Kill the Moonlight’ and ‘Transference’, I, along with most diehard indie rock fans, have been waiting with baited breath for some new material.
And when it finally comes…I can’t bring myself to click on the link! There’s the press release right there, with all the bells and whistles of a good PR Statement. I want to click, but I’ve been disappointed so many times. Spoon hit their peak years ago right?
Get fucked, they’re just starting! ‘Rent I Pay’ is an awesome song! It’s got the rackety guitar, that you hear, or rather feel, when going up a roller coaster, and the exhilarating sensation of Spoon executing a perfect indie rock track like only Spoon can is the same sensation of doing a double-quadruple mind-bender triple-loop, and surviving the aforementioned roller coaster. Absolutely, 100% cannot fucking wait for the new Spoon record!
