Sweet Spirit & Britt Daniel – “Paper Tiger” (Spoon Cover)

Spoon’s Kill The Moonlight classic “Paper Tiger” is a masterpiece of white noise and empty space, a glorious song-skeleton fleshed out with little more than a beating heart. Daniel’s new version of the song with Austin rockers Sweet Spirit trades minimal for maximal, somehow maintaining the same hair-raising tension from the original by filling in the gaps with nervy bombast. It’s the B-side to the Sweet Spirit & Britt Daniel 7″ that also features “Have Mercy.” Hear them give new life to an old favorite below.
