Well, the 5 year anniversary party has began. Check out this Spoon set, hot little number from 2005. I love their Smog cover "Held" - has a great, dark vibe to it. When will they put out another record? Hopefully Britt Daniel is wrapping up with Divine Fits and getting another Spoon LP ready.

This week I'll have sets from Kurt Vile, The Flaming Lips, an Uncle Tupelo DVD, Portugal. The Man, some Jacket of course and some other goodies. Check back!

I certainly wish there was more going on in Spoons corner these days. BUT, with frontman Britt Daniel on the road with his new group, Divine Fits, I suppose we'll just have to wait. Pick up the Divine Fits record though, I dig it. It's got a 80's pop-ness to it that is rather charming and I hear the three piece puts on a great show.

When are we going to get some actual activity from these guys? It seems like their last (and excellent) LP, Transference, came out ages ago and other than the subsequent tour they've  been quiet. There was an Austin concert date a ways back and they've recently announced a small Texas tour but no mention of new jams. Hopefully this short tour of Austin, Dallas and Houston is just the calm before the storm.

I've been listening to this group out of Brooklyn (originally from Columbia, MO) off and on for a while now ever since I discovered they opened for Spoon on a number of dates. Check out their version of John Lennon's "Instant Karma" with Britt Daniel of Spoon, it's pretty excellent.

This band is currently on the road all over these United States, check out the dates here. ALSO, their next LP, Milk Famous, is due out March 6, grab the track "Heavy Metal" for free here.

I love hearing tunes from Spoon's Transference done acoustically by front man Britt Daniel (I've said it before, coolest name ever). This short but sweet set features two tracks from Transference and two from Gimme Fiction, two of my favorite records from these guys.

They've been quiet as of late though, which is a bummer because of how much I love what they do. They played the Austin, TX Fun Fun Fun Fest but that's about it as far as news goes. Soon I'm sure!

Don't forget to grab the killer Spoon set posted yesterday.

More Spoon was recently requested so here we are! Talk about good rock and roll though, they have been one of the best most consistently good bands of the last decade+.

Things  have been awfully quiet on the Spoon front lately, hopefully that means they've got something brewing because after listening to some for my One Word Titles Guest DJ spot I've been hooked...again. Britt and boys have been one of the most consistent bands of the last decade, I'm sure we'll have some high quality output from them soon. In the meantime enjoy this 2010 set that touches a lot on the excellent Transference.
