Have you seen Spoon live? They're crisp, like say, a delicious pastry. They are absolutely not one of those bands who anyone could ever accuse of "studio magic" because their sets beautifully recreate these little jams they have come close to perfecting over the last decade of making indie rock. Well, they're doing it all over again with Transference this January 26, and surrounding that release date with some live shows. One date is even with Jay Reatard, which is sort of like an experiment on what happens when organized sound meets sonic chaos. So we think everyone wins.
