I Turn My Camera On

 
I don't know about you, but Spoon's latest album, Gimme Fiction, is easily one of 2005's best. Those who were aching to hear this new effort from Britt Daniel, Jim Eno, and the boys found early pre-release solace in demos of "Sister Jack" and "I Summon You" offered on Spoon's homepage. The band was wisely holding back on the knockout punch, "I Turn My Camera On".

Britt Daniel hauls his effortless falsetto out of the back shed for this one, a strange mix of funky Prince and the Rolling Stones "Emotional Rescue". This song (and album) should have pushed Spoon to the fore, just ahead of fellow Merge labelmates, Arcade Fire. It still might, time, talent, luck, hype, PR, and endurance will tell.

Song of the year? Maybe. In the Top Ten of the year? Definitely.
