When I first heard this new matt pond PA track from the upcoming album Last Light I immediately thought they sounded like Spoon. Not complaining. Shifting to a more jangle pop sound in my opinion their new album is a step up from their previous EP.
Bitchfork does not care for them much but I find their newer tracks to be a lot better. Perhaps the refresh in the band line up (everyone but Matt Pond left when he moved to NY) helped to shake things up and provide them a new start.
The new album drops in September.
