    Hot Thoughts

    'Hot Thoughts', Spoon's 9th 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's crafty, and a newfound sense of sonic exploration that results in the genre-smasher Spoon have flirted with in the past but not 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.


    We are overjoyed to be back in the Spoon business and in time for Daniel's spot in the pantheon of rock's genius songwriters was well established a ways back - with the crackling, incandescent, multi-dimensional backdrop conjured on 'Hot Thoughts', the lines between accessible and experimental become non-factors for once and all. It's pop as high art, delivered with total confidence and focus.

    Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga

    This record starts with Don't Make Me A Target, a song that builds on Spoon's familiar minimal rhythmic piano/guitar vamp popularized on earlier hits like Small Stakes or The Way We Get By. The album quickly moves into uncharted territory with the atmospheric The Ghost Of You Lingers and moves through several different stylistic changes from the explosive You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb to the wall-of-sound horns of radio single The Underdog. Their most heartfelt batch of songs since 2001's Girls Can Tell.

    A Thing Called Divine Fits

    Divine Fits, the band comprised of Spoon's Britt Daniel, Wolf Parade's Dan Boeckner and the New Bomb Turks' Sam Brown, has confirmed that its debut album, A Thing Called Divine Fits, will be released via Merge Records.



    A Thing Called Divine Fits was recorded from March-May of 2012 in a backyard studio in Los Angeles, CA. The band co-produced the album with Nick Launay and it clocks in at about 42-and-a-half minutes long. Roughly half the tracks are lead-sung by Dan and half by Britt while Alex Fischel plays keyboards like a madman throughout.



    Over the course of A Thing Called Divine Fits' 11 songs it covers such topics as the death of true love, hitchhiking, cocoa butter, emotional distance, what happens when the curtain drops, and Minneapolis, MN.

    1. My Love Is Real
    2. Flaggin a Ride

    Transference

    Produced by the band, Transference is made up of 11 new gems that honor the Spoon tradition while pushing the envelope of the band's sound ever further. Before Destruction opens proceedings with a transfixing air of foreboding before Is Love Forever? and The Mystery Zone kick in the door with the hooks that the band has made its name on. Who Makes Your Money and first single Written In Reverse will be familiar to Spoon fans who witnessed the band playing prototypical live versions at select dates in 2008, as will Got Nuffin, the title track of the EP released by the band earlier this year.


    Since the band's 1994 inception in Austin TX, Spoon has amassed one of the most loyal and steadily growing followings in indie rock, with classic albums like Telephono (1996), A Series of Sneaks (1998) Girls Can Tell (2001), Kill The Moonlight (2002) and Gimme Fiction (2005) each doubling their predecessors' sales.

    Gimme Fiction

    Spoon make some of the catchiest, most confident rock 'n' roll of any group around. Their fifth full-length is nothing short of a dizzying, soulful masterpiece, easily the most expansive work in their career. Gimme Fiction is a sprawling, exhilarating, filler-free album of keenly focused artistic vision and ambition.

    They Want My Soul

    The music:

    Spoon's most straight-up, direct and concise rock album ever;
    A certain "return to form" as a straight up American rock band, a restoration of Spoon's trademark authority, confidence and swagger;
    Music runs a gamut from AC/DC-esque guitar-driven songs like the opener "Rent I Pay" to stunning cosmic space disco tracks like "Outlier" to delicately
    pensive album standout "Inside Out".


    The story:

    After 6 years of incessant recording and touring, band took a 4.5 year break between albums. Spoon returns more invigorated and energized than at any
    point in their career;
    Core audience will love the return to Spoon-y form via future greatest hits like Do You, Let Me Be Mine and They Want My Soul;
    The addition of new people around the band and recording process, namely multi-instrumentalist Alex Fischel and legendary producer Dave Fridmann
    (MGMT, Tame Impala, Flaming Lips), has expanded the band's oeuvre into new and exciting sonic terrain, most notable heard in Inside Out, Knock
    Knock Knock and Outlier.

    Gimme Fiction (Deluxe Edition)

    Remastered By Howie Weinberg from the Original Tapes, includes a Second Disc with 12 Previously Unreleased Demos, a Full-color Book Containing Photos and an Extensive Oral History of the making of the album. The Deluxe LP Package Will Also Include A 24" X 36" Poster.


    To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Spoon classic, Merge will release a deluxe limited-edition version of Gimme Fiction on double-LP (180g). The reissue contains the album remastered by Howie Weinberg from the original tapes, a second disc with 12 previously unreleased demos from the era, nine additional bonus tracks via digital download, and a full-color book containing photos and an extensive oral history of the making of the album. The deluxe LP package will also include a 24" x 36" poster.


    Gimme Fiction dragged the sonic pointillism of Kill the Moonlight further into dub-influenced weirdness as the increasingly confident Spoon went crazy in the studio, experimenting with everything from warped hip-hop samples to horse whinnies. How all this directionless Dylan worship and psychedelic goofing resulted in an album as sharply realized as Gimme Fiction is a testament solely to Spoon's self-assurance and tastefulness (and some hard work, and a bit of luck, etc.). Whatever digging or strange alchemy had to go into it, they only produced more gold. Gimme Fiction deserves special recognition because it's the album where Spoon-backed into a corner-took some crazy leaps, all of them forward. It's a "departure point" for a band that, lucky for us, has never made a real departure. And when it came time for a reissue, we knew it deserved a lasting place on vinyl, right alongside every other indispensable record in Spoon's discography.

    Dark Side Of The Spoon (On Sale)

    Available On Vinyl For The First Time

    Dark Side Of The Spoon is the seventh studio album by Industrial Metal band Ministry, released in 1999. The song Bad Blood was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance in 2000.

    There are two theories behind the title (which occurs in the lyrics of the opening track), the first being a simple play on words, referencing Pink Floyd's record The Dark Side Of The Moon. The second is a reference to the blackened or dark side of a spoon when heated to dissolve heroin, as the band suffered from addiction to said substance at the time.

    The album's cover, which features a naked fat woman sitting in front of a black board with I will be god written numerous times gained controversy and was banned from Kmart. The woman and the words on the blackboard were later airbrushed out.

    This is the first issue of Dark Side Of The Spoon on vinyl!

    Spoon's Life (Pure Pleasure)

    A beautifully recorded session of top quality blues performed by masters of their art. On paper it may look like a slightly odd coupling of KC shouter with a Chicago blues band. The results confirm that Jimmy Witherspoon is a blues singer full of passion and throughout this session all the musicians compliment each other admirably. A beautiful slab of music.



    Musicians:



    • Jimmy Witherspoon (vocal)

    • George Smith (harmonica)

    • Johnny Dollar, Sammy Lawhorn (guitar)

    • Nick Charles (bass)

    • Roosevelt "Snake" Shaw (drums)



    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    From the Original Kama Sutra Mono Masters


    Greenwich Village, 1964: While the folk boom is still in progress, other musics began seeping into the corners and clubs of lower Manhattan. Rock, once down for the count, came back with a vengeance, largely thanks to a klatch of young British bands. Roots music, especially blues, grew rapidly in popularity as folk enthusiasts expanded their horizons. In this intoxicating milieu, John Sebastian, Zal Yanovsky, Joe Butler and Steve Boone united to form the Lovin' Spoonful. Originally a jug band with folk roots, they readily incorporated the sounds they heard all around them. Combining British Invasion jangle with the blues' growl and folk's attention to lyrical detail, they forged a sound completely their own. Accomplished musicians all, they had two secret weapons: the guitar virtuosity of Zal Yanovsky and the rising songwriting talent of John Sebastian.


    The first Spoonful single, "Do You Believe in Magic," took AM radio by storm in June of that year, reaching #9 on the Billboard Hot 100. Featuring an irrepressible melody, a chiming autoharp and Yanovsky's tasteful fills, it was an audacious debut. Their inaugural Kama Sutra LP, also titled Do You Believe in Magic, followed in November 1965. Containing three other Sebastian originals and one song credited to the band, the balance of the LP contained traditional blues covers and songs by contemporary writers. Reaching #32 on the Billboard Top 200, it established the band as one of country's brightest new talents.


    By the release of their second album, Daydream, in March 1966, the band's songwriting chops had fully blossomed, particularly Sebastian's, who wrote or co-wrote all but one of the songs. The album's first single, "You Didn't Have to Be So Nice" reached #10 on the Hot 100 and married a signature Yanovsky riff with a galloping piano part to form an indelible hook. The title track, a mid-tempo reverie with an ace whistling solo, did even better, soaring to #2. Skipping ahead a few decades, the album cut "Butchie's Tune" was used to great effect in season five of Mad Men.


    The band soon returned with Hums of the Lovin' Spoonful. Consciously working in different styles, the band essayed country ("Nashville Cats"), folk balladry ("Rain on the Roof") and psych- tinged rock ("Summer in the City"), among other sounds. This time, all the songs were originals and it was the last full album recorded by the original quartet. It stands as a triumphant ending to one of the most exciting chapters in the American rock story of the 1960s, a perfect encapsulation of a time when it seemed anything was possible in music. Sourced from the original Kama Sutra mono masters, these masterpieces are pressed at RTI on 180gm vinyl.

    The Best Of The Lovin' Spoonful

    Mastered by Joe Reagoso with Kevin Gray from the Original Kama Sutra Stereo Tapes & Manufactured at R.T.I!



    The legendary pop/rock superstars The Lovin' Spoonful (John B. Sebastian, Zal Yanovsky, Steve Boone and Joe Butler) set the music world on fire back in the '60s. With a ton of television appearances, massive concert tours and of course an amazing string of hit singles and albums, The Lovin' Spoonful to this day are still revered and loved by their continual growing legion of fans worldwide.



    In 1967, Kama Sutra Records honored these hugely popular rockers with their first hits album simply titled The Best Of the Lovin' Spoonful. Filled with a treasure trove of number one and top charting singles and hit album tracks from their first three smash albums, this incredible LP also hit the upper rungs of the album charts the Summer of Love 1967.



    No stone is left unturned, as this 12-track masterpiece is loaded with hit singles like Do You Believe In Magic?, You Didn't Have To Be So Nice, Daydream, Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind?, Younger Girl, plus their number one smash from 1966 Summer In The City. As one of the more collectible albums in their Kama Sutra Records catalog, The Best Of The Lovin' Spoonful has been out of print for many years, making it an instant collector's item, which hasn't seen the light of day for over four decades, that is until now!



    Friday Music is pleased to announce for the very first time on audiophile vinyl The Best Of The Lovin' Spoonful.

    The Best Of The Lovin' Spoonful

    As the title suggests this is a real Best Of and not a Greatest Hits album. Although there are five successful singles on the album (Do You Believe in Magic, You Didn't Have To Be So Nice, Daydream, Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind? and Summer In The City), the seven other tracks emphasize the band's assets as a whole and not only John Sebastian's song writing and singing abilities. These seven tracks might not have been big hits, but they are surely the group's strongest material, picked from the first three albums Do You Believe In Magic, Daydream, and Hums Of The Lovin' Spoonful. This 180-gram LP comes in a gatefold sleeve with four postcards of the members.

    The Hill

    On the 100th anniversary of Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon River Anthology,
    Merge is reissuing the epic it inspired: Richard Buckner's The Hill.


    The Hill started in 1996 in The Ranch Olancha Motel, a dusty place near the
    mouth of Death Valley, California. Buckner, who was en route to Tucson,
    Arizona, to record what would become Devotion & Doubt, stayed a week in a
    room with no phone, no television, carrying his guitar, a four-track recorder,
    and a copy of Masters' Spoon River Anthology. He tinkered with a few of the
    book's poems, put them on a cassette, and forgot about it until an acquaintance
    discovered it in his truck four years later. Beset with writer's block and looking
    for a distraction, Buckner would find in the tape the spur he needed.


    Recorded in Edmonton, Alberta, and Tucson, The Hill converts Spoon River
    poems to music. Each page of Spoon River Anthology reads as a final, postmortem
    dictum of a different deceased resident-more than 250 of them
    now passed-in the fictional Midwestern town of Spoon River. The epitaphs
    are important for Buckner because, in death, these people strip the breathing
    city of its dishonesty. Each one, from Reuben Pantier to Elizabeth Childers to
    Oscar Hummel, is no longer concerned with whispers and pointed fingers that
    are often the consequence of a life laid bare for all to see. They're unleashing
    themselves, without fallacy or attachment.


    Buckner chooses 18 of these confessions, each given a unique rendering.
    Backed by Calexico's Joey Burns and John Convertino and surveyed with
    Buckner's unflagging vocal desperation, Spoon River's residents come back to
    life. Like so much of his career, Buckner disappeared into Spoon River and
    returns to us with its story

    People Problems

    Oh No Oh My writes songs that beat down your senses and fill up your boots with a feeling like you've just gotta, at the very least, move. The band jokingly describes their music as sexy indie which is what you might expect from an Austin-based foursome who cite Serge Gainsbourg's Histoire De Melody Nelson, Spiritualized's Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space and Nico's Chelsea Girls as influences on their second full-length album People Problems.



    Multi-instrumentalists Daniel Hoxmeier, Joel Calvin, Greg Barkley and Tim Regan showcase a relaxed, effortless feel and pull no punches, anything goes strategy (Pitchfork) on 12 melodically driven tunes that range from winsome plaints to slightly off-kilter rockers, including seven tracks with hauntingly beautiful strings.



    Oh No Oh My collaborated with sound engineers Jeff Byrd (Spoon, John Vanderslice) and Brad Bell (Spoon, Meat Puppets) in recording People Problems, the follow-up to 2008's Dmitrji Dmitrji EP. The album was recorded in the studio of Spoon drummer Jim Eno and at Hoxmeier's Sugarcube studio (named after the Yo La Tengo song).
