No matter what you think of Spoon’s new record Transference, one thing seems certain – it’s their most heavily promoted album yet.  IF was thrilled to find out that as part of that promotion Spoon frontman Britt Daniel (yes, that’s him above, hiding behind those strange yellow creatures) was stopping by Brooklyn’s Sound Fix record store to play a few songs.  A few staff members made sure to get there early to assure themselves spots.  Daniel kicked it off with “Mystery Zone” and “Written in Reverse” from the new album and closed with “The Beast and Dragon Adored” and “I Summon You” from 2005’s Gimme Fiction.  To listen to/buy Transference head on over to Spoon’s official website. Check a video from the performance below, as well as a list of Spoon’s upcoming tour dates.
