EDITORS’ NOTES

Nine albums in, Spoon maintains a creative pace that shows no sign of abating. Co-produced alongside Flaming Lips associate Dave Fridmann, Hot Thoughts is the Texas quartet's most sonically inventive work to date and a rich musical universe of its own—from the kaleidoscopic opening title track to the gargantuan stomp of "Do I Have To Talk You Into It” and the wiry hooks of "Can I Sit Next To You." The result is nothing short of thrilling.

Hot and Bothered

Spoon is as close to a Dance party in my head as much as Hot Thoughts are in my mind all of the time!!

Track One: So hot, it's flammable.

Spoon is storming out of dormancy, flame throwers a-blazing with this first single hot off the press. The experimental pop soundscape of their previous effort, They Want My Soul, combines with the choppy old school guitar sounds that spoon is known for. The result is a song that provides a mesmerizing background of modern effects while offering the satisfyingly organic elements of rock band: tight, rhythm-driven bass and drums, and choppy, melodic guitar riffs. Seriously, the guitar in this song is some of the best I've heard from spoon in a while. This song is definitely one of best layered presentations of music that I've ever heard from Spoon. Props to them for incorporating some bell-like effects into this song in an effective manner. The production on this song is highly impressive. All it takes is a spark to start a fire, and there is more than enough fuel in the track "Hot Thoughts" to suspect that this whole album will be blazing hot.

New album, new style

The one thing that distinguishes Spoon from the rest of the indie rock scene is how they constantly reinvent their sound on each album they put out. Hot Thoughts seems to be continuing this and I personally can't wait.
