It’s pretty cool that Spoon is giving away a bonus mp3 download every month (via), but I don’t think it’s nearly as cool as the fact that the band also is offering a pdf download of a T-shirt iron-on logo.
Seriously, I can’t tell you how many times I don’t buy band T-shirts because they are printed on shirts by a certain company whose idea of XL is totally skewed by the waify proportions of hipster kids. So, thank you, Spoon, for giving me the freedom to select a shirt of my choosing on which I can display this logo. Smart guy, that Britt Daniel.
About that song … yeah, You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb was my favorite off Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, so it’s neat to hear it in its many incarnations. Though I agree with Pitchfork that Spoon calling this version “country” is a bit of a misnomer.
This is also the second demo version of Cherry Bomb to pop up. The other came on the bonus Get Nice! EP and was a little closer to the finished product than this one.
