RECOMMENDED RELEASE: SPOON – THEY WANT MY SOUL (2014) [ROCK] @spoontheband @LomaVistaRC @RepublicRecords
They Want My Soul is the sort of mid-career album promising young bands should aspire to, and long-established acts will come to resent.
– Pretty Much Amazing
It takes a standard rock-band lineup and adds a sense of otherness by lightly dusting every instrument with effects, and arrives packed with beautiful, subtle detailing.
– The Guardian
It’s rock refigured as a Damien Hirst spot painting–a series of isolated, colorful pops that, together, mesmerize.
