Spoon. If you don’t know who they are by now…..well, I wouldn’t know how to respond to that exactly.
The band is set to release it’s newest offering, and it’s first self-produced, titled Transference on Jan 19th. You can stream the entire album currently @ NPR’s “Exclusive First Listen”, which I’m doing right now. If you are looking for an album that is going to follow closely in the footsteps of Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, you might be a bit surprised. Britt Daniel and Co return to the sound that established the band as one of the more original and creative indie band’s over the past 15 years. A bit raw and crafty in timing, while holding on to some of the stylistic songwriting that Daniel has achieved over the years. Upon first listen..Bravo!
In another collaboration with NPR, Spoon will play Stubb’s on March 17th as part of the station’s SXSW coverage.
More Spoon news to surface soon, I would suspect….
