Spoon - "All I Got Is Me"

Spoon: Don't You Evah

While I would argue that Don't You Evah is more of a single with a few bonuses than an actual EP, Spoon delivered yet another solid release. Debuting as a number one single on the Billboard Hot Single Sales chart, the band seems to be finally receiving the recognition they so rightly have deserved for all these years of great music. The very fact that the Don't You Evah's b-side "All I Got Is Me" did not make the cut for Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga is a testament to the perfectionism in Spoon. Nevertheless, check it out, it's a good listen.

But the real focus should be on the three men responsible "Don't You Evah's" catchy riff. For those of you who still haven't heard the original version of the title track, you should go to CD Baby and purchase a copy of The Natural History's final album The People That I Meet. You won't regret it.
