Lucifer On The Sofa is Spoon’s purest rock ’n roll record to date. Texas-made, it's the first set of songs the band has put to tape in its hometown of Austin in more than a decade and bottles the physical thrill of a band tearing up a packed room.
Lucifer On The Sofa is an album of intensity and intimacy, where the music’s harshest edges feel as vivid as the directions quietly murmured into the mic on the first take. According to frontman Britt Daniel, “it’s the sound of classic rock as written by a guy who never did get Eric Clapton.”
The album was co-produced by Spoon and Mark Rankin (Adele, Queens of the Stone Age) and features contributions from Dave Fridmann and Justin Raisen, not to mention the artwork created by renowned artist Edel Rodriguez.
In 2019, Spoon released Everything Hits At Once: The Best Of Spoon, which was praised by NPR as a “convincing argument for Spoon being one of their era's most distinctive and excellent rock bands.”
Hailed by TIME as “one of the greatest American rock bands”, Spoon topped Metacritic’s chart as the single most critically acclaimed band of the aughts.
