When Spoon formed in 1993, it only made sense that they would begin their career on Matador Records. Since then the group has made their round through the label circuit only to find themselves back where they began. Now with a new reissue series called Slay On Cue, the band is reissuing much of their work that’s been out of print for years. With their debut Telephono and its follow up, the Soft Effects E.P. being made available on vinyl individually alone, that should delight fans of the Texas natives. With the EP being the first available on limited run color variants, A Series of Sneaks, Girls Can Tell, Kill The Moonlight and Transference will all soon follow. To celebrate all of this, the band has dropped a remastered version of their classic track “Small Stakes.”
The albums are all recut from the original masters. All of this will be rounded out by a fan curated compilation for Record Store Day, All the Weird Kids Up Front. The schedule of the releases are as follows:
Telephono / Soft Effects EP
Girls Can Tell
All the Weird Kids Up Front (Mas Rolas Chidas)
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. Each red or blue colorway for Soft Effects EP is limited to 500 copies. All of the album reissues are available for preorder directly from Matador Records.
