    Kill The Moonlight

    Building on the momentum of 2001's critically acclaimed GIRLS CAN TELL, Spoon unveiled KILL THE MOONLIGHT the following year. Keeping things spare, yet surprisingly eclectic, is what elevates KILL THE MOONLIGHT above similarly conceived underground albums; this quality helped to make it one of 2002's most lauded indie-rock releases.

    Transference

    Produced by the band, Transference is made up of 11 new gems that honor the Spoon tradition while pushing the envelope of the band's sound ever further. Before Destruction opens proceedings with a transfixing air of foreboding before Is Love Forever? and The Mystery Zone kick in the door with the hooks that the band has made its name on. Who Makes Your Money and first single Written In Reverse will be familiar to Spoon fans who witnessed the band playing prototypical live versions at select dates in 2008, as will Got Nuffin, the title track of the EP released by the band earlier this year.


    Since the band's 1994 inception in Austin TX, Spoon has amassed one of the most loyal and steadily growing followings in indie rock, with classic albums like Telephono (1996), A Series of Sneaks (1998) Girls Can Tell (2001), Kill The Moonlight (2002) and Gimme Fiction (2005) each doubling their predecessors' sales.

    Gimme Fiction (Deluxe Edition) (Awaiting Repress)

    Remastered By Howie Weinberg from the Original Tapes, includes a Second Disc with 12 Previously Unreleased Demos, a Full-color Book Containing Photos and an Extensive Oral History of the making of the album. The Deluxe LP Package Will Also Include A 24" X 36" Poster.


    To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Spoon classic, Merge will release a deluxe limited-edition version of Gimme Fiction on double-LP (180g). The reissue contains the album remastered by Howie Weinberg from the original tapes, a second disc with 12 previously unreleased demos from the era, nine additional bonus tracks via digital download, and a full-color book containing photos and an extensive oral history of the making of the album. The deluxe LP package will also include a 24" x 36" poster.


    Gimme Fiction dragged the sonic pointillism of Kill the Moonlight further into dub-influenced weirdness as the increasingly confident Spoon went crazy in the studio, experimenting with everything from warped hip-hop samples to horse whinnies. How all this directionless Dylan worship and psychedelic goofing resulted in an album as sharply realized as Gimme Fiction is a testament solely to Spoon's self-assurance and tastefulness (and some hard work, and a bit of luck, etc.). Whatever digging or strange alchemy had to go into it, they only produced more gold. Gimme Fiction deserves special recognition because it's the album where Spoon-backed into a corner-took some crazy leaps, all of them forward. It's a "departure point" for a band that, lucky for us, has never made a real departure. And when it came time for a reissue, we knew it deserved a lasting place on vinyl, right alongside every other indispensable record in Spoon's discography.

    Gardens & Villa

    In the year of the saxophone, Santa Barbaras Gardens & Villa give us the flute. And along the way, G&V effectively wipe clear the vaseline from the murky bedroom funk of recent days. G&V bang out instant classics, each crystal clear and immaculate, but no less sweeping or languid. Their debut is a youthful exploration of just how opulent and pop starkness can go. It also leaves an impression of California in the way that Richard Diebekorns Ocean Park series or the pool party scene from The Graduate both do, always sensed more than stated outright.


    Gardens & Villa channel all the taut pop precisions of '90s Britpop of bands like Blur, and send it through an '80s synth filter both undeniably coastal and modern. Its Spoons Kill The Moonlight lost in a daydream, but with that same hungry energy. Gardens & Villa may simultaneously pull from Gary Numan, The Kinks and odder prog within one composition. And like a fine sweet tea, its made just that right kind of sugary, though even the most upbeat tunes have an undercurrent of the bittersweet and the lost at heart.


    In 2010, Gardens & Villa traveled to Oregon to record their debut with visionary, vibemaster and labelmate Richard Swift. Together, they put some sand in the sheets of new wave (Black Hills) and pop some translucent funk (Orange Blossom). Theres also a level of effortless class maintained across the whole set. Each and every lush little gem explores the wonderful mystery between intuition and proficiency, between tension and repose. Gardens & Villa are Chris Lynch, Adam Rasmussen, Levi Hayden, Shane McKillop and Dusty Ineman.

    Bad Self Portraits (Out Of Stock)

    Bad Self Portraits, taking its cues from the social media "selfie" phenomena, is a startling record, one that shows the group tightening up its songwriting chops and presenting a much more unified statement, front to back. Lead singer Rachael Price sounds as disaffected a woman scorned as ever, and, though she throws some of the vocal leads to her male counterparts, particularly on the song "Seventeen", she's still as commanding (and, as someone else in Review Land has noted, LOUD) a presence as ever. But Bad Self Portraits is notable for dialing down some of the jazziness of their previous full length - you have to get a few tracks in before you hear the group's distinctive horns and Bridget Kearney's thick thunk-a-thunka stand-up bass lines don't really get a chance to shine until third track "Better Than". Bad Self Portraits, then, is a much more streamlined and rockist affair. Even though it doesn't reach the same heights, in terms of bowling you off your feet and knocking you over with infectiousness, as Lake Street Dive did, it is still an excellent record, and one that sees the group emerging as much more mature and self-confident. Bad Self Portraits shucks the adage that anything released in the depths of winter is dross.


    What makes Bad Self Portraits particularly astonishing is that it naturally follows from previous releases in a logical progression. While the Fun Machine EP seemed at the time to be merely a stop-gap release meant to tide fans over to this slightly more than three year wait between proper albums (Lake Street Dive was released at the end of 2010), it now makes a great deal more sense in terms of providing a direction for the group. When the band covered Hall & Oates' "Rich Girl" on that affair, it was merely a means of setting up the grandiose statement of the infectious piano led "Rabid Animal", which is probably my favourite thing on the record although it is, alas, the briefest at two minutes and change. Still, that shouldn't sell the rest of the album short. The gorgeous rock number "Stop Your Crying" (no, not a cover of the Pretenders' "Stop Your Sobbing" or a certain Bob Mould song from Black Sheets of Rain) is insanely propulsive and invites you to clap along. The countrified "You Go Down Smooth", the song the band performed on Colbert, rambles and careens in equal measure. It is, to quote the lyrics sheet, a "special treat". "Better Than", with its seeming time signature shifts in certain measures, shows the band's willingness to experiment with off-kilter sounds. And when Price sings "I have lived a privileged life, but I have seen my share of strife", on "What About Me", you feel it; right in the gut.


    What makes Lake Street Dive so special is that, even though the band members are talented individuals in their own right, they are able to interplay and lock together to form a solid backbone to their music. Price, in particular, isn't even 30 years old yet and has the razor sharp wit and wisdom of a woman a decade ahead of her. It's impressive that the band can sound as tight as they do, as Kearney moonlights in other outfits (Joy Kills Sorrow, Cuddle Magic). If anything, Bad Self Portraits is another outstanding release from a really crucial and important group who is on the cusp of shedding its relative anonymity for bigger and better stages. While I doubt Lake Street Dive is ever going to headline stadium tours, their years of playing scuzzy bars (which impacted their selection of name) is clearly well, well behind them. Bad Self Portraits is an awesome addition to the band's catalogue, and I cannot be effusive enough in my love for this group, self-deprecation be damned, that can make you feel so wonderful to be alive and breathing. Lake Street Dive has that kind of effect on listeners, and it's blistering.
