Following the huge success and acclaim of 'GaGaGaGaGa', Texas indie rock outfit Spoon changed it up with their seventh album 'Transference'. It's a slow-burner and a grower of a record for sure, revealing its minimalist beauty upon a few listens. There's a bit of studio tinkering, fractured sound, calculative production, yet Spoon's sophisticated take on pop remains.

8/10 Jack 20th September 2015

Sure it's not Ga x5 or Gimme Fiction but who wants a repeat of that. I'm tired of seeing good indie bands sell out (i.e. Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse). Sure this is a more subdued effort but after letting this soak in it has some really great tracks. "Nobody Gets Me But You" is simply an amazing slow burner. "Is Love Forever", "The Mystery Zone", "Written in Reverse", are great as well. And "Trouble Comes Running" is an uptempo gem. Check this album out - I like the fact it is subdued as it gives a transparent view of the band.
