In the gaze of all that’s happened this year, the fact that records are coming out at all is a testament to the music industry itself. Last year indie rock stalwarts Spoon delivered their greatest hits, placing a book mark in an already storied career. From playing dive bars to performing in large spaces, the band has never really changed as much as the world did around them. While Everything Hits At Once: The Best of Spoon was a fine collection, their label Matador promised a Record Store Day version chosen by the fans. On Saturday August 29, you’ll finally be able to get your hands on one.
