Spanning a career well into its third decade, Spoon returns with a ‘Best Of’ compilation, Everything Hits At Once: The Best of Spoon. In addition to the 12 fan-adored tracks making up this single LP, Spoon return with the bold new single 'No Bullets Spent'. How many rock bands from the past 25 years could get away with a greatest-hits album? Spoon stand alone, with a career-spanning retrospective culled from all over their unique songbook. It’s a flawless compilation of their best-known, best-loved tunes, yet it’s still full of surprises—the only thing you could expect from a band that’s spent their whole career taking people by surprise.
With a heady blend of precision punk and serpentine classic rock (the band has drawn comparisons to everyone from the Pixies and Sonic Youth to Elvis Costello and Tom Petty), Texas-based indie outfit Spoon went from underground press darlings to one of the genre's most critically acclaimed acts.
Formed in Austin, Texas the band's first album was called 'Telephono', and was put out by Matador. The album was noisy, hook-filled, and generally well-received, but it wasn't until 1997's 'Soft Effects' EP that the group began to hone in on the tight, minimalist sound that would become their forte. A brief and tumultuous affair with Elektra Records began in 1998 with the release of 'A Series of Sneaks'.
It was with prominent indie label Merge that the band would go on to carve out its niche, specifically with 'Girls Can Tell' (2001) and 'Kill the Moonlight' (2002) (the latter spawned the single "The Way We Get By," which appeared on the popular teen TV drama 'The O.C.'), both of which found the group taking a more adventurous approach with their sound.
Released in 2005, 'Gimme Fiction' soared even higher, getting into the charts and 2007's 'Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga' made it to number ten in the charts and topped nearly every major critic's year-end list.
The band also work on soundtracks and producing other bands. It's good to have some choice cuts on one disc from these guys.
