Spoon at Portland's Crystal Ballroom, from the HAD Archive
We can taste it: we're on the cusp of the excitement and press deluge that comes when a record we really care about is on the verge of release. In this case, it's Transference, the Spoon full length that is on target to drop on January 26th of the new year. From what we've heard at the band's live shows, the record promises to be chock full of some fantastic songs.
Keeping that in mind, we were psyched to stumble upon this short interview with Spoon frontman Britt Daniel. In it, Daniel discusses the new record's sound, referring to it as "uglier" and consisting of "demos, or tracks that started out as demos". What's more, it reveals that "Written In Reverse" is set to be the first single from the record, and that the included version of "Got Nuffin" is in fact unique from the version on this year's EP.
All this has us (and we assume, you) extremely excited for Spoon's new LP. So much so, in fact, that you may need something to hold you over. Luckily, Spoon is the band that keeps on giving, and they just posted a live version of "Everything Hits At Once" as their November "bonus" on the web. We've provided a link below, and we recommend you grab it: this version is a distinctly grittier take on the cool studio production of the original, and really emphasizes the breadth of Spoon's awesomeness in the live environ. Enjoy!
