Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
To celebrate ten years since its original release, Matador release a double 180 Gram vinyl reissue of Spoon‰۪s indispensable albumåÊGa Ga Ga Ga Ga. Remastered by Howie Weinberg, it features the studio album on one LP and the 12-trackåÊGet Nice!åÊEP - previously available only as a bonus CD. Comes packaged in a gatefold jacket with updated art.åÊGa Ga Ga Ga GaåÊwas recorded throughout 2006 in Austin, TX, by the band and Mike McCarthy (exceptåÊThe UnderdogåÊwhich was recorded in Los Angeles with Jon Brion). Starting withåÊDon‰۪t Make Me a Target, a song that builds on Spoon‰۪s familiar minimal rhythmic piano / guitar vamp popularized on earlier hits, the album quickly moves into uncharted territory with the atmosphericåÊThe Ghost of You LingersåÊand moves through several different stylistic changes from the, er, explosiveåÊYou Got Yr. Cherry BombåÊto the wall-of-sound horns of radio singleåÊThe Underdog. Upon release, critics and listeners alike praised the record, which subsequently received Best New Music status from Pitchfork and cracked the top 10 of Rolling Stone‰۪s Best Albums of 2007.
