Spoon: Transference

Good review here of American Indie Band Metacritic

Washington Post
Spoon emerged as one of the great bands of the '00s because it strictly adhered to one of rock's most overlooked principles: The notes you don't play are as important as the ones you do play. Britt Daniel's songs are taut masterpieces of efficiency. The approach even trickles down to his vocals. Why sing an entire line when a simple "Woo!" suffices?
