Spoon have pretty much reached cult status. The rockers from Austin lead by the notorious Britt Daniels have been doing their thing for close to twenty years now. While their blend of indie and garage rock, lead by Daniels' otherworldly falsetto, might have evolved, they certainly have always maintained their roots. Transference, the followup to 2007's Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, an album that helped pave their way into the mainstream with songs like “The Underdog,” did not earn the same headlines as its predecessor. Rather than the indie pop-rock that was Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga's premise, Transference, their seventh LP, displays the band jamming and experimenting, Daniels' voice as raw as ever.

On their latest single, “Nobody Gets Me But You,” the band is as bass heavy and bad ass as they were on 1998's A Series of Sneaks, Daniels using repetition to convey his purpose, the band following suit with long jamming sessions and escalating guitar riffs. Customary to Daniels' fashion, his voice gets louder and more aggressive as the song progresses, really urging you to bob your head in agreement. While there are many moments on Transference that are easily likable, this really is a highlight. Watch the video below:
