Siren Says: Possessing a storied music biz history that has helped mold their singular, uncompromising sound, the sophisticated gents of this Austin outfit craft pure pop genius with a twist. Namely, the shady nuances of singer Britt Daniel's lyrical narratives and the one-man rhythmic-propulsion lab known as Jim Eno. Bold but never boastful; subtle but never precious; Spoon is paving the road to modern rock salvation one stellar album and impeccable live performance at a time.
Spoon Say: "I got a feelin' oh and then it got to me. It took its time a-working into my soul. I got to believe it come from rock and roll." ("The Beast and Dragon, Adored")
