Spoon: Hot Thoughts

From their upcoming LP Hot Thoughts (set for release 17 March), Spoon has just dropped the title track and it builds up—like so many of the Austin-based band’s songs do—entirely effortlessly. The dance-rock track is coupled with lead singer Britt Daniels’ vocals that vary from sounding mechanized and splintered to smooth and vulnerable. With some xylophone, a simple beat and some strings, it ends up being a lush song that waxes and wanes beautifully—begging for repeat listens.
