Produced by Spoon and Dave Fridman, on 'Hot Thoughts' Austin, Texas' most esteemed rock ambassadors have created the bravest, most sonically inventive work of their illustrious career!
Hot Thoughts, Spoon's ninth album, is the bravest, most sonically inventive work of their career, though keep in mind, Britt Daniel's already overseen a number of other reincarnations. With all due respect to earlier efforts that have made the quintet both critically acclaimed and a commercial contender, preconceptions about this band are about to be obliterated.
That's not to say Hot Thoughts doesn't have a requisite supply of infectious earworms but there's a lyrical bent that's as carnal as it is crafty, and a newfound sense of sonic exploration that Spoon flirted with in the past but never fully consummated. Produced by Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, The Flaming Lips, Weezer, MGMT) and back with Matador (third time's the charm) helps position Spoon to mount the highest highs of their already spectacular career.
