Using otherworldly sounds, “Spencer Gets It Lit” by Jon Spencer and The HITmakers is described as, “electro-boogie, constructivist art pop, a psychedelic swamp of industrial sleaze and futurist elegance.” “Spencer Gets It Lit” delivers all the friction, excitement, and post-modern depravity one in one song. 

Jon Spencer states, “This is the most uncompromising album I’ve ever made!”
