The business of being in a band is a big deal. Sometimes it’s crazy and sometimes it’s genius, but it’s always entertaining. For Spoon it’s all that and more. Behind their latest album Lucifer On The Sofa their new single “My Babe” is effortless to watch. Feeling like something from a television show. The song really hits and the video works well in any situation.
Mirroring the Johnny Carson Tonight Show, the performance is worldly and well affected. The band sounds amazing and allows for all sorts of tones to come and go. Britt is out front singing and playing and giving it his all. While Jim centers on drums the song just pairs around each member. The energy of the band is on point and sound much like the song itself. The end result is a band worth watching and getting into.
The video is above and can be experienced above or on YouTube. Lucifer On The Sofa is available from Matador Records. Spoon is on tour starting July 07 at Town Ballroom in Brooklyn, NY until November 19 in Mexico, Mexico at Corona Capital. All tour dates can be found here.
