Spoon “Rent I Pay” – This song kicks off the album and leads with a giant drum sound and nice cymbal sounds followed by a ringing crunchy guitar as the band locks into the groove. Daniel’s vocals come in and he’s sounding looser and bouncier than typical to match the music. As the track rolls along, you hear the slightly distorted bass popping in places, other guitars augmenting the sound and some really nice cymbal strikes. This track is an early favorite, driven by its immediacy and hard hitting sound. And even though you can’t hear it, the second track works so well following this one.
