Spoon/ Transference

Indie Rock. Spoon takes on a new sound for a destabilizing effect. beware some tracks drop off mid syllable. More pensive tracks, lots of confusion, distortion, dizzy, experimental sounds. Might seem sloppy at first, but I think Spoon crafted this album to create a scattered sound to emulate the album name.
