Cultural dissonance doesn’t come much more acute than happening upon Spoon playing Ellen DeGeneres’s afternoon talk show one day and immediately flashing back to watching the band rock gritty Austin dives like Emo’s and Hole In the Wall a generation ago. Besides front man Britt Daniel’s steely ambition disguised as outward nonchalance, the one thing uniting the Spoon of then and now is a bespoke and instantly recognizable sound all their own, rooted in drummer Jim Eno’s impeccable timekeeping abilities. Spoon’s profile continues to rise because Daniel and his bandmates are tenacious almost to a fault, both onstage and in the studio; the tales of multiple takes, rewrites and their painstaking quest for that one perfect note, in exactly the right place, are legendary. As with the past several Spoon LPs, the band’s latest, Hot Thoughts, is rapidly shaping up as the group’s most acclaimed and accomplished release to date.
