Spoon, A Giant Dog

When: Mon., Dec. 8, 8 p.m. 2014

It's been a long four-year wait between albums for Spoon fans, so when the Austin, Texas-based band released its latest album, They Want My Soul, it felt like something of a reintroduction. Previous die-hard fans will appreciate the new vibe that Spoon's indie-rock tunes have evolved into, and new fans (maybe newcomers who heard the band's relaxed 2010 album, Transference) can easily jump right in and groove to the eclectic guitar riffs and melodies not previously heard in their catalog. The single "Do You" is a perfect example of the band mixing old styles with new flavor, keeping simple guitar and drumbeats while blending in subtle piano and echoing vocals. A Giant Dog is also on the bill. (Rebecca Frost)
