Spoon fed

Didn't mean to neglect the new Spoon record in yesterday's roundup. "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga" is an excellent album (Much better than the predecessor, "Goo Goo Goo Goo Goo"). It just seems like it's been out forever. I pieced together a copy weeks ago from links on this site, which is a metasite that shows what MP3s have been posted by music bloggers. For some reason, this seems less morally objectionable than just launching Soulseek and pirating a disc outright.

So it'll take a few more Interpol spins to see who comes out as the ultimate July 10 CD release champeen. Meanwhile, the Interpollers just announced a Sept. 21 show at Atlanta's Tabernacle ($32.50, general admission). Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. tomorry, so get you some.

This is spoon, the position. The band is good, too.

Amen: this album ROCKS. That "cherry bomb" song somehow reminds me of motown/smokey robinson.

It's good. It's not the new Okkervil River, but what could be?
