Taken by Spoon’s Ga Ga Ga Ga

Hey, look! It’s the Spoon bandwagon coming down the road! Wait, hold on, out of my way! Ouch. Jerk! Let me on! Let me on! *runs along side, and jumps on the bandwagon*

It all started when I heard Spoon’s single, “The Underdog”, from their new album, Ga Ga Ga Ga.There’s a catchy and shall I say, summery-ness about it (even though I’m stuck in 110 degree desert hell, so summer isn’t pleasant like it should be). But I can enjoy a good summer song in the car with the AC cranked, or in a friend’s pool (note to self – next house, pool).

So off I went to eMusic to see if their new album was there. It was. I downloaded it. I played it all the way through. I played it all the way through again. I burned a disk for the car. I put it on my iPod. This album makes me happy. It is laden with catchy hooks, pleasant melodies, and a wide variety of infectious tunes.

“The Ghost of You Lingers” is wacked out dream music (a good thing). Then the 3-4-5 song combo of “You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb”, “Don’t You Evah”, and “Rhythm and Soul”pack a BAM BAM BAM punch. Cool sounds pervade the album: tamborines, handclaps, horns, cool bass lines, fresh acoustic guitars…

It’s a solid album from start to finish. And it’s no secret. I’m about the 1,000th music site to rave about this album. So consider this highly recommended with the Ickmusic *ding* stamp of approval.

Pick up Ga Ga Ga Ga on Amazon or Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (Bonus Track Version).
