Knock Knock Knock by Spoon

Spoon “Knock Knock Knock” – Back to more drums and acoustic guitar, but with a different flavor on this track.  This follows “Do You” very nicely.  The bass gets some more focus and space at the beginning of this song as well.  This gives the song more of a sinister sound and a completely different mood than on “Do You”.  About two minutes in, there’s some great distorted guitar that’s introduced that really helps supplement the sound.  There are also some interesting background vocal effects that add to the mood and space of this track.  This song is a great example of paying attention to and listening to all of the little flourishes that are added throughout the song.  With about a minute left, there are some distorted vocals that come in that help close out the track, along with more background sounds, voices and effects.  Included is a live radio station performance and it’s interesting to see how the song is performed live since all of the studio effects cannot be duplicated live.  But the track still sounds awesome.

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
    crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

  2. An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a
    coworker who had been doing a little research on this. And he actually bought me lunch because I stumbled
    upon it for him… lol. So let me reword this….
    Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending
    the time to discuss this topic here on your site.

  3. Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d
    figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog
    article or vice-versa? My website addresses a
    lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot
    me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Terrific blog by the way!
