Six Degrees of Deerhunter #3 - Spoon

The 3rd instalment of the Deerhunter Six Degrees post is Spoon. An easy one, true - but as they are touring extensively with each other in the US, it comes as no surprise that their setlists occasionally melded into each others...

No finer example than on Jimmy Kimmel Live (a pretty ordinary chat show to be honest, except for the high level of musical awesomeness that graces the show's stages every night - its worth the hr of ho humdrum alone - that and the occasional Matt Damon ribbings...). Spoon came on to play a track off their latest LP Transference, and lo behold! Bradford Cox on guitar! With guitar closeups, back to back moves and all! It is quite good, groovy stuff. I love that Cox loves to 'play with' the bands he plays with - case in point being last May's ATP, where the Deal sisters joined Deerhunter on stage to play an Amps song.
