Spoon will offer a twelve-track, 22-minute EP titled Get Nice! this week. The songs are short, noisy, weird, and each track leads into the next one. It's very cool. Included are a different version of "I Summon You" and from the new album, a stripped down version of "You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb." "Love Makes You Feel" and "Curfew Tolls" both sound like a Dark Side era Pink Floyd messing around with the electronics, and "1975" is a lo-fi rocker that sounds like it has been sitting on their shelf for a while. Single tracks really don't do it justice, you've got to hear this thing in its entirety.
for free if you head to the record store on Tuesday and purchase Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga., the first pressing will come bundled with the Get Nice! EP. If you're local, you can see Spoon perform next Thursdsay (7/19) at Waterloo Records, 5 pm sharp. You can also read more on Ga over at Both Sides.
