Spoon - They Want My Soul Vinyl LP
Spoon They Want My Soul Vinyl LP
Artful Austin, TX rock 'n' rollers Spoon make their welcome return with They Want My Soul, the band's long awaited eighth full-length offering and first since 2010's Transference. The loose and upbeat 10-song set finds the band working with outside producers for the first time - Joe Chiccarelli (Beck, U2, Tori Amos) and Dave Fridman (MGMT, Weezer, OK Go) - as well as new member Alex Fischel from Britt Daniels' side supergroup Divine Fits.
Lauded by NPR Music as “unmistakably a Spoon record, with fantastically infectious grooves and melodies,” They Want My Soul is preceded by the punchy swagger of lead single “Rent I Pay” and also boasts a cover of Ann-Margret's "I Just Don't Understand."
"The album was recorded this past winter, mostly at Public HiFi in Austin and Tarbox in Cassadaga, NY. It was the first time we’ve had the chance to work with Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT, Creaming Jesus) and we’re pretty sure that the levels indicate this to be our loudest record — it’s also Deux Deux’s favorite...Side One begins with the gnarliest Jim Eno drum sound ever recorded and Side Two ends with Rob Pope’s bass amp completely breaking down to fuzz + hiss at the end of a take.
The record’s got beats, whispers, chants, guitars, whistles, secret codes, and horror-movie strings. It’s got songs about holy rollers, back masking, real life properties of physics, love during the apocalypse and a brief reappearance of Jonathon Fisk." - Britt Daniels
