Spoon – ‘Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga’

<I>Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga</I>, the sixth studio album from indie rockers, Spoon, is bound for success, if not an iPhone commercial. From cinematic productions like 'Underage' to the hooky 'Finer Feelings,' <I>Ga</I> unleashes a splendid inventory of rock, motown, and pop from an Austin band on the rise.

Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, the sixth studio album from indie rockers, Spoon, is bound for success, if not an iPhone commercial.

From cinematic productions like ‘Underage’ to the hooky ‘Finer Feelings,’ Ga unleases a splendid inventory of rock, motown, and pop from an Austin band on the rise. The horns in ‘You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb’ are simply infectious, while ‘The Ghost of You Lingers’ pulls the plug on conventional songwriting to create a vast, perpetual ode to heartache, which frontman Britt Daniels seams together beautifully with a dizzying piano riff. Another highlight.

Yet even as GGGGG features some of the group’s finest work, it also feels scattered, at times repetitive. Opening number ‘Don’t Call Me A Target’ recycles ‘That’s the Way We Get By’ from Kill The Moonlight, while the other nine tracks (there are only ten total) suffer from a somewhat mottled foundation, evoking the same aftertaste as say, a mixtape.

Still, this is a difficult record to dislike. Daniels has always possessed a knack for writing smart music that combines his love for British pop with fuzzy, minimal guitars, and for the most part, the production on Ga is just right.
