Spoon plays very nice, offers full EP of bonus tunes

The rhythmic & fabulous Austin band Spoon released their 6th album Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (count how many Gas to put here) on Merge last week, and just because they’re nice they also included a full EP of bonus material called Get Nice!. Before I dash out the door tonight, I wanted to put up three tunes off that bonus collection which have been rocking my earbuds nonstop lately — especially this first one, can’t get enough of it:

You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb (alternate version) – Spoon
1975 – Spoon
Dracula’s Cigarette – Spoon

Buy Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga at your local independent retailer and you just might find they have some of those delightful bonus bundles left.

  • How about this awesome deal? I picked up the cd today at Newbury Comics and it came with not only the Get Nice ep but also a 7 inch with “The Underdog” demo and “It Took a Rumor to Make Me Wonder, Now I’m Convinced I’m Going Under” as the b-side. So cool! Too bad I don’t own a record player, though this first piece of vinyl is making me think about investing in one, if only to have in case something this random and excellent happens again.

  • If you buy the album on vinyl you get the record free as a digital download as well; that’s the way we get by.

  • Ha! Now I have two versions of Cherry Bomb on repeat… and I can’t pick which one I love more. Song of the summer? I think so!

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
