Time's gone inside out
Time gets distorted with
This intense gravity
I don't got time for holy rollers
Though they may wash my feet
And I won't be their soldier

There's intense gravity in you
(There's intense gravity in you)
I'm just your satellite
(I'm just your satellite)

Ooh, and I know that time's gone inside out
And now it's only like I told you
Mmm, though they may wash my feet
They do not make me complete

Break out of character for me
Time keeps on going when
We got nothing else to give
We got nothing else to give

Ooh, cause our time's gone inside out
I don't make time for holy rollers
Mmm, there's only you I need
They do not make me complete

Spoon and Cake go together well!
What a nice groove of songs you have played, all new to me, thank you for making my Monday feel groovy!
Smart!
"Time gets distorted with

True.  Gravity does distort time.


There's intense gravity in this. 
 

Because it goes inside out, just like good music does

I heard McCartney earns about half a million every year from that song alone...

This is so much better.
 
I agree tired of hearing Paul McCartney

Got more drum thumping than Arcade Where's The Fire. 
 
 

It's almost as if they wanted the drums to sound that way.
I don't like the band but the song has something that I can't escape.
Edit: Thx RP you really changed my opinion on this band. There is only 1 song of which are played here i don't like. The rest is really good. So i guess i like the band, now.

Love the way this goes from one speaker to the other, very clever indeed, the cat wants feeding but she can wait because I'm lost in this tune at the moment.I love my cat, but she should know better.

Very compelling sleeve. And the song is worth attending to, too.
Just the beat alone.  And just possibly one of the best songs ever. 
Just saw these guys at Massey Hall in Toronto. Great show and great tunes!

This song was featured a few months ago on a podcast called Song Exploder.  They talk to artists about their creative process and deconstruct the recording of a song over the course of an episode and analyze the component tracks of the song.  I highly recommend this episode if you like this song!

 
love the podcast - highly recommended. 
Light and atmospheric.  Perfect this beautiful morning before a motorcycle ride around the city.

I love his voice ....
So good.
 
Earworm.
This set is keeping me up late this evening. Something about someone else spinning the good tunes that brings back good ol' FM radio at night. The song is over and now I can sleep.

Really great album overall!

 
Can confirm! I didn't care much for Transference, but this is my favorite album I've bought in the last year. Really tight from front to back.

The Loft is a much more interesting S/XM channel than Spectrum.  Or you can take RP in the car via our free iOS & Android apps — without using cell data if you use our cache function (see https://radioparadise.com/apps).


2 cents: 

I've often wondered which S/XM channel most resembles RP, but because of the formats each channel adheres to I always end up streaming RP for it's "eclectic mix" instead. Also, I've noticed the cell/WiFi stream sounds much better on my car speakers than does the satellite stream. 

Never-the-less, if I want something I can only find on S/XM I gravitate towards Little Steven's Underground Garage. Sure, he likes to here himself talk, but I like the fact that he's attempting to define garage rock as a cultural category as much as a musical one.

 
Yeah, sound on our apps (& most Internet radio apps) is going to be significantly better than satellite. S/XM — like 'HD' digital radio in the US & DAB in the UK — prioritizes the number of channels over sound quality. My ears tell me they're down to 24-32kbps per channel these days.

'HD' radio is 96kbps per FM frequency, which sounds great if there's just one audio channel. Add an HD2 channel, however, & you're down to (usually) 64kbps on the main channel & 32kbps on HD2 — worse than analog FM on the HD2 & not much better (some would say worse, due to the artifacts) on the main.

What I've heard of DAB in the UK sounds pretty wretched too. Oh, well.  Sure makes our 128kbps or 320kbps phone streams sound nice by comparison!
a poor mans Warren Zevon imho. still pretty damn good.

Thanks Bill, great to hear from you. We're actually enjoying RP a lot more on our travels through the magic of Bluetooth. 

I'd love to wax poetic on what RP has meant to us since we discovered it eight months ago. Maybe it's time to hit the forums ... 
I like my Spoon with Cake!

I have to listen to this in the car on Sirius/XM's dreadful Spectrum (along with the mandatory U2, Neil Young and Van Morrison). Therefore I dock it two points, to a 5.

I'm actually liking some of the new music on Spectrum right now (Beck, Dawes, Exes and Ohs). It's just that RP executes the concept so much better.

Thought this was World Party until I looked. Which is fine by me.
 
I would have guessed the same, although that koto-like sound also suggests The Cure. The singer's far better than Robert Smith, though...

Once or twice will be enough, thanks. Nice lyrics, but it's a bit monotonous. 

 

yeah, that beat is boring.
Its about damn time they put an album out.  A good one too.
This caught my ear.  Nice new stuff.
meh
This is a great effen album. So much good work. Every song really rocks. This is the best they have done yet.
Good to hear new Spoon on RP again!  It's been awhile, but it's always fun and invigorating...
