A full on rocker and first album in five years, ‘Lucifer on the Sofa’ is the Spoon sound distilled to its essence. Recorded in their hometown of Austin, TX, Spoon deliver a set of accomplished Indie that feels vital and of the moment while also fully of their established oeuvre. An engaging listen with riffs and runs that draw you in, builds that grip the listeners attention and choruses that become instantly familiar, Spoon somehow avoid oversaturating any track to the point of it becoming an ear worm. It’s an uncanny balance that, even on repeat listens, produces surprises. The abundant Indie genre rarely produces an album as immediately pleasing as this, yet Spoon have done it. Again.
