Britt Daniel has said from the beginning that Spoon’s floaty, experimental piano-pop single “Inside Out” was inspired by Dr. Dre’s 2001. Now one of Dre’s fellow West Coast rap veterans, DJ Quik, has produced a new version of the much-remixed track that fully capitalizes on its hip-hop potential. It’s the latest offering from Yours Truly’… More »

Spoon – “TV Set” (The Cramps Cover)

The Cramps’ slithering, bloodthirsty, unhinged rockabilly is one of the great secret influences in rock music. Just about any band who knows how to ooze or throb picked up a few tricks from Lux Interior and Poison Ivy. Spoon definitely know how to ooze and throb, and it’s striking to hear just how easily they… More »

Sweet Spirit & Britt Daniel – “Paper Tiger” (Spoon Cover)

Spoon’s Kill The Moonlight classic “Paper Tiger” is a masterpiece of white noise and empty space, a glorious song-skeleton fleshed out with little more than a beating heart. Daniel’s new version of the song with Austin rockers Sweet Spirit trades minimal for maximal, somehow maintaining the same hair-raising tension from the original by filling i… More »

Spoon – “Inside Out” Video

Last month, They Want My Soul single “Inside Out” got a whole EP worth of remixes, and now Spoon has shared a video for the track.

Spoon – “Inside Out” (Demo)

Spoon are a great studio band, one that knows how to hold back. Their records often feel painstakingly assembled, stripped of everything the songs might not need. So it’s fascinating to hear them at the barest possible level. Last August, Britt Daniel and Jim Eno appeared on the podcast Song Exploder to talk about writing… More »
