Ah, Spoon. What a consistent band. You know their music is going to be good, even if you're not crazily into it, you're still not going to dislike it. Maybe that makes the inoffensive, but maybe that also makes them amazing shape shifters o the low. "Written in Reverse" is peppered by Britt Daniels pushing his voice out on gnarly spikes, piano clunking away in the background. The video is equally minimal, just sharp black and white footage of the band playing in a room—we're not sure what else would make sense.
