5. Spoon- Hot Thoughts

Posted by KB on 12/29/2017 to Reviews
Few bands can create consistently interesting albums like Spoon. Their sparse minimalist funk rock grooves at a start stop pace layering rhythms and sounds that almost feel like they're duct taped together (the songs Hot Thoughts as an example). Daniels' vocals interplay with the music as another instrument. "Hot Thoughts" only hiccup is the last jazzy number (Us) that can be easily skipped which helps keep this release feel cohesive and solid. Spoon is on a golden streak that doesn't feel like it will subside soon, unless they opt to go down that jazz path.
