Spoon ’ s one-tenth album, Lucifer on the Sofa, is the isthmus ’ second arrant rock ’ n roll record to date. Texas-made, it is the first gear set of songs that the quintet has put to tape in its hometown of Austin in more than a decade. Written and recorded over the last two years – both in and out of lockdown – these songs mark a shift toward something brassy, godforsaken, and more full-color .

From the detuned guitars anchoring “ The Hardest Cut, ” to the urgency of “ Wild, ” to the band ’ s blown-out traverse of the Smog classical “ Held, ” Lucifer on the Sofa bottles the physical shudder of a band tearing up a pack board. It ’ s an album of intensity and affair, where the music ’ randomness harsh edges feel vitamin a intense as the directions quietly murmured into the mic on the first-take. According to frontman Britt Daniel, “ It ’ s the reasoned of classic rock candy as written by a guy who never did get Eric Clapton. ”
 
While Spoon ’ s last album, Hot Thoughts ( 2017 ), bristled with drum machines, synths, and stellar moods, the nonstop tour that followed in its wake island tugged the band back toward a stripped sound. “ I liked where we ’ d gone on Hot Thoughts – it had a specific style and it covered new ground for us – but we kept noticing on the road that the live versions of the songs were beating the album versions, ” says Daniel. “ And it got us think : The best rock music is not about dialing in the right field patches and triggering samples. It ’ second about what happens in a room. ”

It took some relocate. In fall of 2019, Daniel moved back to Austin from Los Angeles. A calendar month subsequently, guitarist/keyboardist Alex Fischel followed him with a car fully of gear. The travel to Texas added up for a bunch of reasons : Daniel was born and grew up there, and his family never left. Drummer Jim Eno has his public Hi-Fi studio apartment in Austin, which allowed the band the luxury of recording at whatever tempo they liked. Above all, regrouping in Austin would help the band break in with the sound and the feel of the end few Spoon albums .

That return felt like less of a return than a jerk to the arrangement. here was an opportunity to write amidst the creative anarchy that inspired Daniel to make music in the first put — a city where everything from outlaw state to psychedelic punk have long co-mingled at honky-tonks, house shows and backyard barbecues .

“ We wanted to make a record where we could experience and draw from a setting, ” says Daniel. “ Where Alex and I could write all day, then go out and see Dale Watson at the Continental, then come binding home and write some more. ”

That scenery would yield everything from the scorch and bite of “ The Hardest Cut, ” the first song written by Daniel and Fischel after returning to Texas, ( “ I spent a bunch of 2018 and 2019 listening to ZZ Top, ” Daniel explains ), to the pacify dizziness of “ Astral Jacket, ” a ballad tracked after a night out at the now-shuttered Austin cabaret, Stay Gold. Bathed in atmosphere, it ’ s the good of coming down – meandering Wurlitzer, brushed drums, and the thump of a kettle suspended in predawn motionlessness .

Working aboard producer/engineer Mark Rankin ( Adele, Queens of the Stone Age ) – and with contributions from Dave Fridmann and Justin Raisen – the band ’ south strategy was straightforward. “ I ’ vitamin d come in with a couple newfangled songs and rather of piecing it together like we did the last one, we said ‘ Let ’ s rehearse it ’, ” Daniel says. “ Let ’ s play it in this board over and over til it becomes something. And let ’ s good do it with as few instruments as we can. ”

Halfway through the read process, the pandemic hit. The studio apartment shut down, but Daniel continued writing. “ There are songs I wrote last leap [ of 2020 ] that I wouldn ’ t have come up with otherwise, ” he says. “ It was that first-of-its-kind moment. ”

The album ’ s title track snapshots a late night walk through downtown Austin during closure, steeped in the eerie noise of isolation and closeness. Daniel explains : “ I didn ’ thymine know where that image came from but it felt right, this idea of Satan sitting with me on my couch, staring at me. But after the song was written I figured out that the Lucifer on the sofa is the worst you can become – the resentment, or miss of motivation or despair that keeps you down and makes you do nothing or self-indulge. So it ’ s a sung about the battle between yourself and that quality you can become, the conflict being played out through a hanker night walk through business district Austin. ”

It ’ sulfur besides the song where the colors change, the lights turn down and the rules of the record go out the window, the direction last songs on a record sometimes do. “ It was always gon na be the death birdcall. It wouldn ’ t have fit anywhere else, ” says Daniel .

When the set reconvened in October, Daniel had a new batch of songs, and a fresh sense of momentum. “ It ’ s surely something we didn ’ t take for granted, that touch of being in a room with each other, ” Daniel says. “ That moment was a once in a life kind of palpate. ”

match on the Sofa is the voice of that moment, a phonograph record of defiant optimism, the sound of a isthmus cracking things open and letting them spill out onstage. At a time fraught with doubt, it ’ sulfur shutting the door on the hellion you know and never looking back .
