Thank God It’s Monday! This is a regular weekly post of music that got me through the week last week, so I’m hoping to spread the love. This week includes an album I absolutely love: Gimme Fiction by Spoon. You can read some of my random thoughts below, and/or just stream some samples from anywhere.fm under the playlist TGIM: 9/17/07.
Spoon – Gimme Fiction
Spoon hails from Austin, TX. What an awesome city for music:
- South By Southwest (SXSW)
- Austin City Limits (with music festival)
- 6th Street
- Waterloo Records, one of the few CD stores still standing.
I could do another post just on the bands that come out of Austin, and Spoon would definitely make it in there. I believe they became famous (well, indie band famous) for their album Girls Can Tell, but Gimme Fiction is my favorite. I can’t even give you standouts on this album. Great listen from start to finish. Check out some music videos from two songs off the album below: I Turn My Camera On and The Two Sides of Monsieur Valentine. Enjoy…
