Spoon: Kill the Moonlight
Buy! - (Merge)
This Austin band could've played it safe and followed up last year's acclaimed Girls Can Tell with more of that album's hooky, guitar-driven pop-rock, but instead their fourth album finds them experimenting with different instrumentation, innovative arrangements and a more stripped-down sound. While the band's using more keyboards and studio effects, the lean sound gives the instrumentation more breathing room. Best of all, they've crafted some memorable songs that work perfectly with their more minimalist approach. 8/15/2002 - Don Yates
