Spoon sets a date for new album
"They Want My Soul" is the name of the next Spoon album, and fans' four-year wait for their new set ends on Aug. 5.
The indie rock band's frontman Britt Daniel and drummer Jim Eno gave a nice, revealing interview to NPR this week, talking about the impending tunes.
Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton describe their listen of the album as "bursts of precisely placed guitar noise and uncluttered, fantastically infectious grooves and melodies" but also shows a looser band... challenging itself and stretching its sound, particularly with synth textures courtesy of the band's newest addition, Alex Fischel."
Joe Chiccarelli and Dave Fridmann produced on the set, recorded not in the band's Austin breeding ground but in Western New York.
On taking a four year break, Daniel said, "Between 2001 and 2010, we put out five records... it's pretty fast. I mean, especially since concert promoters run the business now. And that's the way you make money, is doing shows, you know? So we just needed a break. And when we got back together, I felt that that break was a good thing."
