Spoon Spoon Spoon
So iTunes has been streaming the new Spoon record. It’s so goddamn killer. JFC.
But, something I’m finding interesting is that in more than one place music writers (iTunes description included) has described Spoon’s music as “jagged power pop.” As I said, this is very interesting because 1) Spoon is my favorite band of ’00s, 2) I’m obsessed with power pop. And yet, I would have never thought of Spoon as a power pop band. Maybe a few songs are soooorta power pop (Sister Jack? Jonathon Fisk?) Sorta. This new record has a couple of songs where you can definitely make a case that they are “jagged power pop.” Enough that they wouldn’t feel out of place in our power pop blog (go check that out if you’re into that).
Really curious what Britt Daniel thinks of that descriptor.
PS. Jagged power pop is not a terrible way to describe some of XTC’s music.
