Well, it's up on OiNK, so I'm sure it's gonna spread like wildfire. Downloading now.

A lot of these songs sound like a mix between "Was It You" and songs like "The Way We Get By" or "Take the Fifth". Only song I skip is "The Ghost of You Lingers". Favorites so far are "You Got Yr Cherry Bomb" and "Don't You Evah".

YES.  I think I listened to that song 30 times yesterday.

Quote from: ono mo cuishle
What'd you like, what'd I miss?
you missed their last two excellent albums Girls Can Tell and 2002's minimalist masterpiece Kill The Moonlight.  try tracking those down.  i'm just now hearing this new one today, but it grows with each listen, i've heard it through about 3 times now.  theyre a pretty awesome band and i've found that most of my favorite bands/artists today, none of them 'blew me away' on first listen.  for me, some of the most interesting music takes many listens to absorb, because you keep finding new things.  wilco and arcade fire would be two examples of this.  i think spoon are fairly accessible though and very catchy.  so just keep putting it on and i imagine it will grow.

modage I just took your advice from some time ago about this band (and the birth of the new album), I must say most of it is just great. Thank you people.

I've been listening to it since it leaked. It's good, but not great. It's just a cute, fun, short record. It lacks the creativeness of Gimme Fiction. You will not find ANY epic tracks on Gax4 like Gimme Fiction had with The Beast And Dragon, Adored and My Mathematical Mind.

It's a summer record. It's a definite step backwards, but in a good way, since it matches their earlier work well, but doesn't surpass it.

Britt Daniel is an amazing musician though.

i agree with everything you wrote. it's kind of a let down because gimme fiction is so huge and all, but i really like pretty much all of the songs.

i heard/watched Ghost from a Pitchfork link.
didn't do too much for me.

i picked up KTM not too long ago.
i think my favorite of the last 3 is Girls. KTM isn't bad, but i don't get why they didn't flesh out the super short songs on side 2.
anyone know what's going on in track 4?
surely his voice is sped up or he sucked on hellium before each take.

CD.

his voice sounds higher and different than on any other track of theirs i've heard (to me anyways). sorta like McCartney and When I'm Sixty-Four - it was sped up.

i listen critically and even studied recording music and dabble in it, so i know some of the tricks of the trade.

i'll take this as the sarcasm it is, but try this:

if you have headphones try to listen to the track and really single out the main vocal.

before i ever messed with recording i never thought about all the types of reverbs, eq, etc, that are used all the time. beforehand i always thought John Lennon had an odd voice and it wasn't until later that i learned he tried to bury his voice a lot so he would put it through different stuff.

for instance with Kill the Moonlight. on the first track - notice the reverb or echo effect on britt's vocals? every time i hear that i think of richard ashcroft/the verve and the urban hymns album because they use a very similar reverb.
