So, like many people I've been geeking out over the new Spoon record, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. The first time I listened to it, I wasn't over the moon about it, but upon repeated listens, I gotta say this shit is a total grower. This record is all about the craftsmanship—flourishes and handclaps and horns and shakers that pop in and out unexpectedly, all over loungey, shuffling beats and bendy guitar parts. And yet, for all that's going on, it's a record that still exercises restraint. Sweet production values, too—it manages to sound really crisp and warm at the same time.
But, uh, track 3—"You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb"—has the same intro as How I Became the Bomb's "Killing Machine." Check it:
