Spoon. Band of the Decade. AND Very Cool Guys


A lot of you already know how cool Spoon are. Band of the decade based on album reviews and such. Even the last line in the liner notes-“Buying records at record stores is cool”, is pretty Rad.
Now they impress us more with their latest fan list email. Here is an excerpt:

“Subject: Transference out now / This week

My Dear List,

Transference is now available digitally in Europe. Physical product will be out next Monday.
Transference is now available widely in the US and Canada – via the Spoon Official Store, the Merge Records Store, iTunes, Amazon , and pretty much every brick-and-mortar with the exception of Wal-Mart.

See that? “with th exception of Wal-Mart”. These guys just topped my cool charts. Again.
