In Austin, in late 1993, guitarist and vocalist Britt Daniel and drummer Jim Eno formed the core of a band mixing elements of R&B, pop music, and jagged rock and roll. In the years since, Spoon has released seven albums to increasing critical acclaim—the review aggregator Metacritic named them the band of the decade in 2010, and they’re also considered one of the most in-demand live acts around.
With album number eight due out later this year, we want to dial back the clock a bit with an exclusive recording from the archives. This week on the Austin Music Experience, we’re featuring Spoon in concert, recorded on the historic soundstage of Austin City Limits in front of a live studio audience. Join us Friday at noon and again at 11pm on KUTX 98.9 or anytime in the player below.
