Nearly ten years ago (May 10, 2005), a band called Spoon came out with an album titled Gimme Fiction. I can't tell you how many times I've listened to this album since then. There's something catchy but equally moody and haunting about this album that I love listening to.

This piece combines 2005 and 2014. The hand-lettered lyric is from a song on Gimme Fiction called "I Summon You". The illustrated hand is from their latest album cover (I reversed it for my piece):
