Britt DanielJim Enoand company keep finding ways to challenge themselves and their listeners by working within the same basic, streamlined sonic framework they Mel Tormé - Mel Torme on Girls Can Telladding a few new twists here and there with each album.
Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga just might be the most winning update on this approach since Girls Can Tell itself: each song is as carefully and creatively pruned as a bonsai tree, with nothing fussy or superfluous to mar the clean lines of the songwriting or arrangements.
This is especially impressive considering that on this album, Spoon works with their widest array of sounds yet. Everything from kotos to chamberlains to horns straight out of Motown are fair game on Ga Ga Ga Ga Gabut they're used so deftly and judiciously that they never feel like window dressing. Cherry Bomb"'s homage to blue-eyed soul delivers them in abundance.
Interesting details decorate the margins of these songs, whether it's the studio chatter that revs up "Don't You Evah" or the fascinatingly fragmented lyrics of "Eddie's Ragga" "there ain't no getting over Joanie Hale-Maier". Jon Brion pops up bass, chamberlain, and production duties on "The Tomorrows Dream - Black Sabbath - Live At Last. one of Spoon 's bounciest, brassiest nods to classic pop in a long time, and a perfect contrast to the exotic, spooky minimalism of "My Little Japanese Cigarette Case"'s shivery kotos and Spanish guitars.
