Power Pop on Epitonic

Where last we left off, we had examined 2 songs on Epitonic. But wait! There are yet more gems to be found on said site. To wit, let's check out songs by 2 critically-lauded, commercially-ignored power pop purveyors from the 90s: Spoon and Superdrag. To be honest, I've read a lot of good things about these bands but really haven't explored their work outside of what's on Epitonic. But the free stuff is always a good place to start. Each band has 4 songs available; these are my favorites:

Spoon - The Way We Get By. "We get high in back seat circles..."

Superdrag - Lighting The Way. Listen here. It's reminiscent of various songs by Sugar, particularly If I Can't Change Your Mind. The height of irony? One of the other songs is actually titled Sugar. Neat!
