Something 4 The Weekend # 40


One of my favorite television moments in recent memory is when Britt Daniel, singer and songwriter for Spoon, appeared in a Season Two episode of Veronica Mars.

Veronica is working at Java The Hut...Yes, a coffee shop...One that featured a karaoke night, and in this particular episode, Mr. Daniel has a quick customer-server moment with Veronica, before taking the stage and belting out the song "Veronica", originally written and performed by Elvis Costello and Paul McCartney.

The thing is, Spoon's last 4-5 albums have been consistently good to stellar, and Spoon, before long, might end up with a catalog, and longevity, to rival Costello's, if not McCartney's...And Britt Daniel has quickly established himself as one of the finest pop/rock songwriters working today, and a writer of mostly silly love songs at that...Hyperbole? Meh.


Take this song..."Don't You Evah"...The simplicity hooks me instantly...A bass line I swear I've heard a dozen times before, but maybe not quite...Handclaps...A slow, snaky guitar melody winding around that bass, and ten seconds in my head is bobbing and my shoulders are swaying side to side...

Just a clean, groovy song...Spacious production, uncluttered arrangements...Britt Daniel's voice up front, singing something about silly love, I think...Who knows? It probably doesn't matter.

"Famous sounding words make yr head feel light."

Hotcha! Hank
