Song of the Day: Spoon, "The Underdog"

Song of the Day: Spoon, "The Underdog"

For reasons not entirely clear to me, I've never really spent much time with Spoon. Though the Austin, TX, band is beloved by indie rockers and rock critics alike, I just haven't gotten terribly excited about what I've heard of the band's music.

All that may change, however, with the band's next album, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, which comes out July 10 on Merge Records. In fact, I spent a significant portion of my day yesterday listening to the four tracks that have surfaced online. Merge is streaming three of the songs online (start with "Don't Make Me a Target"), and it looks like the label will be unveiling more as the release date approaches.
