a celebratory 10th anniversary deluxe edition of the austin, texas outfit's 5th album where they took creative & stylistic quantum leaps that resulted in classics ‘I Turn My Camera On’, ‘The Beast & Dragon Adored’, ‘My Mathematical Mind’, ‘I Summon You’ & so many more.

The reissue contains the original album newly remastered by Howie Weinberg from the original tapes, a 2nd disc with 12 previously unreleased demos from the era, a digital download of 9 additional bonus tracks & a full colour book containing photos & an extensive oral history of the making of the album by The AV Club’s Sean O’Neal. The deluxe LP package also includes tipped sleeves, a 24” x 36” poster and a digital download of all songs. ‘Gimme Fiction’ dragged the sonic pointillism of ‘Kill The Moonlight’ further into dub-influenced weirdness as the increasingly confident Spoon went crazy in the studio, experimenting with everything from warped hip hop samples to horse whinnies.
