Complete your Spoon collection. One of my favourite albums on vinyl. The music pops on wax. Amazing vocals, bass and studio effects. Play it loud enough and it's like the band is in the room. Underrated album by this band. Reply Notify me Helpful. referencing Transference, LP, Album, MRG365. Couldn't be happier with this one! Another great example of how a vinyl record can be perfectly made. It's flawless and it sounds quite stunning. The album itself is a great one.

A fitting title, Transference, takes the listener’s expectations of a highly produced Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (2007) to a more organic listen that echoes back to the band’s early days. A strong album to say the least, it has the same Spoon we love, but with new twists that make it a little darker, simpler, and grainy. Because it was self-produced, we get a more Spoon-esque listening experience, the way we imagine they want us to hear it. But there is one thing that hinders the transfer of the electrifying Spoon-esque vibe: the lyrics.

Transference Tracklist. 1. Before Destruction Lyrics.

Given Spoon’s reputation for consistency, it’s not a surprise that Transference is good. However, it manages to be good in surprising ways. This time, the band’s quest to get to the heart of their songs led them to take matters into their own hands and produce this album themselves - a first, which seems somewhat remarkable, considering the band’s tight control over their sound.

Listen free to Spoon – Transference (Before Destruction, Is Love Forever? and more). Britt Daniels and cohorts apocolyptically prepare passionate romantics towards felicity in this seldom purchased and puzzeling to percieve work. Lights go on, lights go off - do you wonder where the room comes from, goes to? Spoon answers this question with vague threats towards our voyeuristic older generations.

Their first since 2007’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (titled before Lady Gaga was born!), a US top ten album, bravely forsakes its cheery-loser anthems and taps into veins Spoon were staring at on such previous darker hits as I Turn My Camera On. The persistent, nagging falsetto and determination to stay in a groove until it’s yielded all possible fruits and only then quit it reminds you of Prince: if Camera was their Kiss, much here is their If I Was Your Girlfriend.

Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, from 2007, saw Spoon reach their apex in this regard; a record where auditory adventurousness (see 'The Ghost of You. Lingers') and pop nous ('The Underdog') not only sat comfortably side by side, but where the former actually served the needs of the latter, as on the modernised Motown of 'You Got Yr.

Spoon - Transference (Image courtesy of Merge). I was 24 when I first found Spoon, after a friend loaned me A Series of Sneaks. I lived in San Antonio, seventy miles south of Austin, TX. As a result of the proximity, I've seen Spoon play live more times than any other band. I've, on numerous occasions, shamelessly tried to endear myself to Britt Daniel (to no avail.
