Well, that was fun. Four and a half years later, Spoon have returned with their eighth studio album, They Want My Soul, a friendly wake-up call from the druggy claustrophobia of 2010’s Transference. The Austin rockers once again sound fresh, jubilant, and ready to have fun with their music — a first since their Got Nuffin EP back in 2009. But they’ve certainly done some stretching: Britt Daniel polished off brilliant new wave with Divine Fits (and brought back a friend in keyboardist Alex Fischel); Jim Eno cut his teeth over at Austin’s Public Hi-Fi studios, crafting tight work for Telekinesis, Heartless Bastards, and !!!; and Eric Harvey shook out any withstanding nerves with his solo effort, Lake Disappointment. “We just needed a break,” Daniel told NPR earlier this summer. “And when we got back together, I felt that that break was a good thing. And we were all excited about playing again.” He’s not wrong.
