When we told you about the January release of Spoon’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga followup Transference (1/26, Merge) and revealed the 11-song tracklist, we included links to live versions of three of the tunes we’ve already heard along with a little teaser. But over at MySpace, Britt Daniel notes:
This is the first record we’ve made without a producer or heavy of any kind and I don’t know for sure because I’ll never hear this record in the same way that someone who didn’t make it will, but I think you can tell it. When I listen to it I think, hey, that’s how I woulda done it! Which is really what you wanna to hear from a band, isn’t it? This one is pure Spoon. For better or worse and all of it.
With that in mind, tease yourself a little harder with a full listen to the studio take of track three, “The Mystery Zone.” It’s at HypeM.
