Spoon - Kill The Moonlight (2002)

We continue our quest to cover all things Spoon with a look at Kill the Moonlight.  On this album, Spoon becomes more experimental with their song compositions, adding more synthesized drums and keys to the mix. But still present are Britt Daniels's always spot-on guitar riffs and Jim Eno's simple yet masterful drum beats. With songs that break away from the mainstream through risk-taking and experimentation, but still carry with it catchy melodies and pop-hook punches, Kill the Moonlight set Spoon on the path to becoming the indie-rock gods that they are today.
