any know what song AMC was using to promote their new series?
it featured piano and i know it's not on Gimme Fiction of Girls Can Tell.
the simple guess would be Kill the Moonlight, but i'm more hoping someone knows exactly what i'm talking about.

they were advertising it for a while. i want to say it's called Hustle and sorta a money/casino-y show. i haven't look for it in depth. just hoping someone would know offhand.

Here's a nice little review of A Series of Sneak: http://www.cokemachineglow.com/reviews/spoon_sneaks1998.html

Anyway, Spoon is one of my favorite bands. I love all of their albums except for Telephono and the EPs which I think are decent (except for the Agony of Laffitte, love that shit).

Anything You Want. Oh man. I tell you what.

I haven't seen the ad, but from your description it's almost certainly off of Kill The Moonlight, and it's most likely "The Way We Get By".

I love all of their albums except for Telephono and the EPs which I think are decent (except for the Agony of Laffitte, love that shit).

I think you gotta give Telephono another chance.  For one thing, "Plastic Mylar" is still my favorite Spoon song of all time.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Oh, I think it's a solid little album, just not one I like listening to very much. I'll give'er another chance tomorrow though.

New song. http://filexoom.com/files/2007/3/28/65636/Ghost.mp3

It sounds very mature, almost reminds me of what Small Stakes would sound like had they made it NOW, but nothing like a single so maybe it's just a leaked track, or even a B-Side.

I hear no Jon Brion, so maybe he didn't work on the new album.

One of my most anticipated albums of the summer.

i believe its track 2 on the album.  and of the songs they worked with Brion on, i believe that only 1 is on the album.  its also one of my most anticipated lps of the summer.  maybe THE.

What do you guys think of the song?

Mod, you should update the thread title.

Well, it hasn't leaped up the list of my favorite Spoon songs, but I definitely dug it, and I'm sure I would like it even better in the context of the album.  I like how it feels like a bit of a departure from the overly smooth production that turned me off of Gimme Fiction; it has that level of rawness that I love and expect from Spoon.  But really, all it's going to take for me to prefer the new album to Gimme Fiction is simply not having "I Turn My Camera On" on it.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.
