Witterings from an old indie kid
French act Spoon God have been around for a few years now and this brand new EP seems to be their first release since 2014.
They make music which transcends genres and on this EP you can hear everything from drone to Krautrock or alt-rock to post-punk. I must confess I found some of the tracks hard to get into at first but there are some here that grow worthy of your ears attention such as the coldwave inspired The Real Thrill (666 Queer Cult) and Seventeen which slow burns with pulsing guitars.
However the title track stands out for me mixing darker synthpop with psychedelia which takes LCD Soundsystem’s All My Friends out for a spin, never to look back. It’s always nice to hear a band that is not constrained by boundaries and it’s worth persevering with this one.
