Spoon's new album, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga drops on July 10th. I have, of course, already placed my pre-order.
In anticipation of the new release, merge records is posting one song each day until the entire album is fully stream-able. There are two songs up as I write this. The first, Don't Make Me a Target, I had the pleasure of hearing last summer at the Mates of State/Spoon/Death Cab for Cutie show in Berkeley-- I liked it then and I like it even more now. The second song, The Ghost of You Lingers, is a little too drone-y for me on the first listen, but I'm sure I'll warm to it eventually. The third song, You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb, is awesome.
Spoon will follow the album with a Fall US tour. I'll likely be there.
