Last here in 2008 for a tour that included appearances at all six Big Days Out, as surprise guest to the Arcade Fire and for their own headline shows, Texan minimalists SPOON return this Autumn having signed up to perform nationally for the GROOVIN' THE MOO experience and for a selection of major city headline shows.
The 2010 tour coincides with the release of a brand new albumTRANSFERENCE, the follow-up to 2007's much heralded US Top Ten hit GA,GA,GA,GA,GA.Unlike its predecessor though (arguably the band's most polished statement to date) TRANSFERENCE is a stark reminder of the proverb "less is more" and a nod perhaps to the bare bones production style of the band that inspired the Spoon name: krautrock pioneers, Can.
OnTransference, it's quality not quantity of melody that sticks: each song is spinal, gutsy, emotional and different. Here Spoon drops the polish to give us rough, ready and human rock.- DRUM MEDIA (Album of the Week)
What a joy it is that bands like Spoon exist. Easily one of the most consistent bands of the last decade-plus, they have become almost synonymous with their indie-cool swagger and their calculated and nuanced approach to making records - Absolutepunk.com
While Transference is remarkable in its own right, song for song it stands tall alongside the best of the band's entire catalog.- UNDER THE RADAR
Live too,SPOON are trimmed of any excess and deliver a show based on precision, passion and skill. You'll hear no unnecessary guitar or drum solos at aSPOON concert.
