On their early recordings, like 1998's A Series of Sneaks, Austin's Spoon tamed the sharp angles of post-punk into something less chilly and more warm-blooded. Since 2005's recently reissued Gimme Fiction, they've moved in a more soulful direction, like the Rolling Stones reborn as an Americana act with a Prince fixation. On their ninth album, Hot Thoughts—their first without acoustic guitar—Spoon bust out synths, hand claps, and electronic beats for a sinuous party record. If their fiery set at Bumbershoot 2017 is any indication, this two-night stand should confirm their status as one of America's great rock bands.
