Spoon fans, get ready to hear a lot more about Austin's big little indie band. The group is releasing its seventh album, Transference, next week, and the major news outlets are lining up to offer their support.

NY Times ran a profile of the group in Sunday's paper, noting that Spoon started around the time that college rock was gaining steam. And now many of its contemporaries--"the Pixes, Pavement, Guided by Voices--are kaput or working the reunion circuit" while these guys have "kept calm and carried on."

And this morning, NPR added the group to its "hear the entire album series," meaning you can stream Transference (minus the ability to see song titles or skip between songs) here.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
