New Spoon video: I Ain’t The One

Video: Spoon – “I Ain’t The One”

Spoon – I Ain't The One (Official Video)

From Hot Thoughts, out now on Matador.

Spoon ain’t the one, the one to get played like a poop butt. See, they’re from the street so they know what’s up.

Wait wait, wrong song. As much as I’d love to hear Spoon cover N.W.A, this is an original and the real star of the show is Alex Fischel’s electric piano. Sometimes you forget that there are other people in the band besides Britt Daniel, but there are and “I Ain’t The One” is a good reminder. When Jim Eno’s drums kick in two solid minutes into the song, you’re like, “Oh yeah, rock and roll!”
