Surprise! The good kind, which I think we all could use. We’ve heard nothing, but thanks to a tip we’ve got some basics to relay: Spoon is releasing three songs under the project title Got Nuffin on Tuesday 6/30. Track titles include “Tweakers,” “Stroke Their Brains,” and of course “Got Nuffin.” For now, you can preview all three at Amazon: the title track sounds like a dusky, percussive rocker about darkness and shadows, “Tweakers” sounds like a lo-fi demo of a closet bucket-drum session or something, and “Stroke Their Brains” sounds like it’s from the brains of the Strokes. Head over and listen, and we’ll update with more info when we get it.

  1. Wow! Now a Spoon EP. Is 2009 going down as the best year ever for music? I think it kinda is.

  2. I hope they keep up with the style they had in “Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga.” My favorite album from them thus far. Something about “You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb” that just makes ya feel warm inside.

  3. holy shit how did i not hear about this before?

    We could not process your order. The sale of MP3 Downloads is currently available only to US customers located in the 48 contiguous states, Alaska, Hawaii, and the District of Columbia!
    if anyone finds a way to rip this so that us northern folk could take part please let me know.

    or, maybe it’s just aptly titled.

    seeing as merge is promoting it as a “single” rather than an EP, I think it’s a very real possibility that a full length might be released in coming months..

    Best band ever! I knew they’d come out with something this year. “Who Backs Your Money” and “Writing To You In Reverse” suggested something. Hopefully an album is next!

  9. Yesss! Finally bought Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga and I’m itchin for some more Spoon. Hope this leaks before I go on vacation..
