CURRENT: Spoon – “Inside Out”

In terms of unexpected musical ventures from Spoon, “Inside Out” recalls another gem from one of this century’s best albums, to these ears at least, “The Ghost of You Lingers”, off their triumphant 2007 release Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. Like that song, the percussive, icy instrumentation is a main draw, while Britt Daniel and company add layers of R&B and electronica to the track, making this one of Spoon’s most experimental songs to date. Whereas “Rent I Pay” and “Do You” served as highly rewarding answers to the question of “Where did indie rock go?”, “Inside Out” finds Spoon, indeed, working from the inside out. They Want My Soul, Spoon named their latest release. “Inside Out” is the band delivering the main entrée on a silver platter.
