Spoon’s ninth album and fourth in a row to crack the U.S. Top 10, Hot Thoughts, landed the following week to yet another cavalcade of critical ecstasy: Rolling Stone awarding it a 4-star rating, New York magazine hailing Spoon as “incapable of releasing a bad record” and Entertainment Weekly agreeing the band “couldn’t make a bad record if they tried,” while The Ringer cited “a case to be made for Spoon being the greatest rock band of the 21st century.”
Spoon commemorated Hot Thoughts’ release week with a trio of shows in their hometown of Austin TX that were the talk of this year’s SXSW festival. The band managed to sneak a film crew past the fire marshalls fighting back the droves at the jam packed SXSW gigs, and the resultant video for the album’s “fascinating” (Stereogum) “scorcher” (Vulture) of a title track captures Spoon in all its raw power and glory.

.These four shows with The Shins are sure to be highlights of an ongoing world tour taking Hot Thoughts‘ “after-dark explorations undertaken in thrilling ways” (Time Magazine) to all corners of the globe, as the new album has achieved the highest chart positions of the band’s 20+ year career in the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Portugal, Austria and Switzerland.
