Spoon has been consistently churning out solid albums ever since its 1996 debut Telephono, and now the Austin-based band has released its eighth full-length album, They Want My Soul. The new songs see the band expanding its sound while still maintaining its unique style of smart and witty indie rock.

You may not even realize it, but Spoon is a twenty-year-old band. They got together in Austin, Texas in late 1993, and they've spent years forging their identity and honing their craft as they watched other indie rock darlings come and go.

Some lucky FUV members headed to see an NPR Music show with Spoon this afternoon at Le Poisson Rouge, but even if you weren't there, you can still hear a brand new song from the band. Spoon kicked off the show by playing "Rent I Pay" from its forthcoming album (out August 5th) called, They Want My Soul, and we have video of that performance below.

Divine Fits - Words and Music - 2012

When it was announced that Britt Daniel of Spoon, Dan Boeckner of Handsome Furs/Wolf Parade and Sam Brown of New Blood Turks were forming a new band, the first word that came to mind was "supergroup." Not to my mind, necessarily, but you get the idea. "Supergroup" gives the impression of a bunch of musicians who are passing time between their regular gigs to play around a bit. A distraction, of sorts. Nothing could be further from the case with Divine Fits.

WFUV's Alisa Ali's conversation with Spoon about their seventh studio album, 'Transference.' They told Alisa that their minimalist indie rock, also needs minimal input from their label, and occasionally leads to maximal fun in-studio.
