Nearly thirty-years into an extraordinarily consistent yet inventive career, Spoon remains one of indie rock’s most critically acclaimed acts. Formed in Austin in 1993, the group began with a refreshingly brash take on pop-punk before eventually stripping down their sound for breakout releases like 2001’s Girls Can Tell and 2002’s Kill the Moonlight, both of which were critical and commercial successes. By the mid-2000s, Spoon was widely recognized as one of rock’s most innovative bands, frequently appearing on TV and film soundtracks with their stark, catchy tunes. Their well-earned reputation for consistent greatness was solidified in 2009 when review aggregator Metacritic ranked Spoon as its “top overall artist of the decade.” After taking a few years’ hiatus, Spoon reemerged in 2014 with some of their most acclaimed work to date. In February, the band released their much-anticipated 10th studio album Lucifer on the Sofa, proving yet again that their originality and creativity remains unmatched.
