    Whereas Spoon kept things percolating on the excellent title track (one of the best songs in the month of January, in fact), this latest offering finds Britt Daniel & co. gliding at a more steady, swaggering pace. The whole thing’s got a different kind of sex appeal than its predecessor, one highlighted by funky guitar and bass bits and, later, some synth-y wizardry that sounds like the band’s just about ready to pull you into another dimension.

    The black-and-white visual, directed by Beck and Bob Dylan associate Marcel Dzama, incorporates a lot of the track’s sexy surreality, as it features masked lovers and beasts brandishing bouquets of flowers. See the oddball clip for yourself down below.
