Spoon - Hot Thoughts Album Review


Tricky business, crossing the Atlantic: few have made the journey either way and found universal adoration; for every Beatles there are dozens more of your Blurs and your gobby Gallaghers.

Spoon - Hot Thoughts Album Review

Hot Thoughts is the band's ninth album and follows 2014's They Want My Soul, a stellar commercial success in the US and their first working with producer Dave Fridman, whose CV also includes the likes of Tame Impala, Mercury Rev and Flaming Lips.

Theirs is still a decent brew though: Chief Spooner Britt Daniel has the sort of ear-charming pipes which legitimise the tricksy smorgasbord which Hot Thoughts soon becomes, through the libido soaked indie funk-rock of the titular opener to the spritely prog of First Caress and then beyond, via the thumping alt-disco of Can I Sit Next To You.
