Spoon fans, get ready to hear a lot more about Austin's big little indie band. The group is releasing its seventh album, Transference, next week, and the major news outlets are lining up to offer their support.

NY Times ran a profile of the group in Sunday's paper, noting that Spoon started around the time that college rock was gaining steam. And now many of its contemporaries--"the Pixes, Pavement, Guided by Voices--are kaput or working the reunion circuit" while these guys have "kept calm and carried on."

And this morning, NPR added the group to its "hear the entire album series," meaning you can stream Transference (minus the ability to see song titles or skip between songs) here.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
