SPOON: I Ain’t The One

Ahead of an upcoming run of October dates that includes Red Rocks and Austin City Limits, Spoon have released a new video set to a live recording of album standout track, “I Ain’t The One.”  Renowned British artists and filmmakers Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard (Silent Sound, 20,000 Days On Earth) have captured one of the world’s most formidable live bands in an intimate studio setting, the slinky silhouettes and blue-tinged shadows complimenting the song’s sinewy synths and Britt Daniel’s standout soulful vocals.  The minimalist drums and bass surface sporadically throughout, building tension across the melancholy melody gagagagagathat never quite relents. It has been a whirlwind year for Spoon, Austin’s most esteemed rock ambassadors, and they’re showing no signs of slowing down with today’s announcement of a new run of West Coast headline tour dates in January.  Spoon’s ninth album Hot Thoughts came out to a cavalcade of critical ecstasy in March, and has sustained continuous praise in all the “Mid-Year Best-Of” lists, a sure sign of what’s to come as we enter the last leg of 2017. Never ones to slow down, Spoon will reissue their 2007 classic Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga on Merge Records on October 20th before heading to Europe in November.  They return stateside just in time for two NYC shows, newly added East Coast dates, including the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, PA, on December 3rd.
