Spoon’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga is in stores now.
Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. That’s the name of the record. Seriously. Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga.
I’ve always been pretty ambivalent about Spoon, but while the new record played overhead at a coffee shop, a friend of mine, a die hard Spoon fan (hi Matt!), described the video and explained how singer Britt Daniel
found the horn section heard on the record at a Mexican restaurant in his hometown of Austin, TX. He apparently had to get an interpreter to ask them to play for him. That’s a pretty cute story. didn’t find the horn section heard on the record at a Mexican restaurant in his hometown of Austin, TX and my friend Matt got him confused with Jack White of the White Stripes.
Sheesh, Matt. You’re fired.
Here’s the first single off Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga called “The Underdog,” anyway. I like the song quite a bit, despite the record title making me feel like I’m gagging every time I say it.
Also, does anyone else hear a little early-era Billy Joel in the chorus?
