6 Bands That Might Be Spoon
Ok, I know it doesn’t totally sound like the Spoon guy, but didn’t they do some kind of echoy, reverb washed thing in 2010? Or 2011? I remember because I was working at a Sprint store and they played this song all the time. Could be wrong though.
Love this one! I think it was a live session they did, maybe BBC? It’s got that raw sound you don’t normally hear from Spoon. The four-on-the-floor stomping thing makes it sound like an energetic demo, but the detailed harmonies totally give away that it’s The Guy From Spoon. You want a beer?
First of all, the fade-in music box piano is the kind of studio trickery we’ve come to expect from this Atlanta, GA (or somewhere like that) based band. And the affectations of our lead vocalist? Unmistakable, I think.
Crunchy yet sharp guitar. Whisper-croon phonebooth vocal. Perpetually aggrieved rock-dude lyrics. I mean, who else could it be? (nodding) Yeah, totally. Love Modest Mouse. Really feel like it’s Spoon though. I’d check what’s playing but my phone is all the way over there.
Man, the Spotify algorithm is only playing Spoon tonight huh? Haha, not complaining. Great band that I know all kinds of things about. My only complaint is that all the songs sound the same! Wouldn’t hurt the four, or two, or five guys in Spoon to mix it up a little.

I think they used this riff in a different song too? That’s a cool thing about Spoon is that they sort of reuse the same grooves and beats in different ways. If this is them, it’s hard to tell with the game on.
