With their heady blend of precision punk and serpentine classic rock, enigmatic, Texas-based independent rock outfit Spoon went from underground press darlings to one of the genre’s premier commercially and critically acclaimed acts. It was with prominent indie label Merge that the band would carve out its niche in the increasingly widening modern rock mainstream, specifically with Girls Can Tell (2001) and Kill the Moonlight (2002), both of which found the group taking a more adventurous approach with their sound. 2005’s Gimme Fiction soared even higher, while 2007’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga topped nearly every major critic’s year-end list. Spoon's seventh full-length album, Transference, was released in 2010 and debuted at number four on the Billboard 200. Spoon's new album will be released in summer of 2014.
