Spoon Drops New Bonus, "Japanese Cigarette Case (Oceanside Demo)"

Spoon at The Fillmore, from the HAD Archive

We really don't know of any other band that's quite so giving with their archival material: Spoon manages to somehow let their demos and b-sides to trickle forth via their website's "bonus" feature. This month is no different, and the band's just posted a new track. We couldn't be more pleased.

This month the track is the "Oceanside Demo" of the Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga track "My Japanese Cigarette Case". While the track is a bit more stripped down than the original, it's so close to the actual album track that we're not sure the word demo even is necessarily apt. Either way, it's great to hear another take on such a killer tune. Check it out for yourself!
