New Audio: Spoon – “Well Alright”

This new track comes via the Dark Was the Night compilation, like just about anything leaking out these days. The album compilation drops next Tuesday, Feb. 17th. on 4AD records. Get more info HERE


This cut though, from indie heavyweights Spoon, is a bit of a let down. Sorry guys, but this fast fasted and confusing song doesn’t remind me of anything Spoon has done in the past. At first I wanted to tap-my-toe along to “Well Alright” but eventually I just wanted to turn it off. But I suppose if there is any place to take the band in a different direction, this would be the place to do it. Oh well I guess, everything else I’ve heard from Dark Was The Night has sounded pretty much amazing, so I’ve still got high hopes and anxious nerves running through my veins for this release. Grab the mp3 below and see what you think. Enjoy!

Cool Cover: Spoon – “Decora” (Yo La Tengo Cover)

What’s not to love? Two heavyweights of the music industry and two bands that have expansive catalogues going back into the ’90s, one covers the other and what do we have? a really nice track to tide all those Spoon fans out their until their next album. While I’ve never been a huge Tengo fan, I’ve always appreciated what they’ve done fro music and how successful they are, but Spoon is certainly without argument one of the greatest bands of the indie circuit of all time, and I’m hoping for great things from them on the heel’s of 2007’s impressive Ga Ga Ga Ga.

There have been some live bootlegs of new Spoon material floating around the blogosphere for a while now, but this the first studio track I’ve come across. You can pretty predict what the song’s going to sound like, Spoon’s style has been pretty solid for a few albums now, and this track doesn’t venture from that. Have a listen for yourself, Brit and the crew deliver once again, but then again, everything from these guys seems to be golden.
