The album was preceded by the title track and “Can I Sit Next to You” as singles. As a whole, the Matador Records release is yet another addition to the Austin band’s catalog that “adds up to a greater sum,” as Dan Weiss put it in his review.

Though perhaps frontman Britt Daniel put it best in his breakdown of Spoon’s entire discography:
“I think I would be surprised if we were sitting on the release date of our first record and somehow somebody played me this album. I would be very surprised. But sitting where I am now, it feels very natural. It seems like where we’ve been meaning to go. I’ve never been able to figure out how some things that I do capture the imagination of more people than others. It’s hard for me to know when that’s going to happen.”
Spoon also recently announced a crop of spring and summer tour dates in support of their new album.
