New Noise :: Spoon :: The Ghost of You Lingers

Well, here it is, the second track from Spoon's upcoming Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, slated for release July 10th. I find it immediately engaging and beautiful, but some people might need a couple listens. Britt Daniel's vocals reminds me of the David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti-written dream pop of Julee Cruise that appeared in one of my favorite television shows Twin Peaks. Of course, with the staccato piano constantly pounding flatly, the song itself doesn't carry the dreamy quality, making it seem more disturbing and urgent - like a nightmare that you're trying to wake from, but dammit, you want to see what's behind that door. It's absolutely amazing, and while it's a bit early to say for sure, between this and another track that will appear on the new album, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga could be a contender for one the best albums of the year. I'm going to shut up, and let you listen for yourself now.
