Spoon’s tenth album, Lucifer on the Sofa, is the band’s purest rock ’n roll record to date. Texas-made, it is the first 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 louder, wilder, and more full-color.
From the detuned guitars anchoring “The Hardest Cut,”to the urgency of“Wild,” to the band’s blown-out cover of the Smog classic“Held,”Lucifer on the Sofa bottles the physical thrill of a band tearing up a packed room. It’s 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.
Halfway through the recording process, the pandemic hit. The studio shutdown, but Daniel continued writing. “There are songs I wrote last spring[of2020]thatI wouldn’t have come up with otherwise,”he says.“It was that first-of-its-kind moment.
When the band reconvened in October, Daniel had a new batch of songs, and a fresh sense of momentum. “It’s certainly something we didn’t take for granted, that feeling of being in a room with each other,” Daniel says. “That moment was a once in a lifetime kind of feeling.”
Interpol began in New York in 1997, when guitarist Daniel Kessler recruited bassist Carlos Dengler and singer/guitarist Paul Banks to form a band. In 2002, with Sam Fogarino on drums, the band signed to Matador records and released Turn On The Bright Lights, which made it to 10th position on NME’s list of 2002’s top releases and Pitchfork named it the year’s #1 album.
Over the next decade and a half Interpol would go on to wide critical and commercial acclaim, with five subsequent high charting records on the Billboard 200; earning rave reviews across the map from Rolling Stone to TIME; performing on late night television shows including the Late Late show with David Letterman and Conan and playing major festivals like Coachella and Glastonbury and headlining Mexico’s Corona Capital.
The band (Banks, Kessler and Fogarino) have just finished recording their latest studio album with legendary production duo Flood & Moulder, due for release through Matador Records in 2022.
I just so happen to have Sept 17 & 18 off from work and I am also a fan of both Spoon & Interpol so it is meant to be that I win these tickets.
I would LOVE to see this show!
Spoon? AND Interpol?!! What kind of magic is this?! Would love so much to see these shows.
Spoon is my favorite band and Interpol is my hubby’s favorite band. What a cool combination! Pick me pick me!
First time I saw spoon was 2002 and have seen them countless times since. Would love to check out at least one of these sets.
Two great nights of two great bands?! Yes please!
I’ll be in Portland for the weekend. Interpool puts on an amazing show. Would love to win these tickets!
Two of my all time favorites. I’d love to go!
Please please please pick me!🙏
I’ve got my camera on.
I’ve been a huge Interpol fanatic since their first album. Unfortunately the universe has yet to align and I have not had the opportunity to see them play live. They are 1 of my top 5 must see before its too late bands!!
What a lineup! I love Interpol, so that’s a given good time. I’m not too familiar with Spoon. I’d love to check them out though. I’m sure it won’t be hard for them to win me over 🙂
It would be so exciting to not have to try watching one of my favorite bands (Interpol) on tippy toes or through a hole in the fabric of that fence surrounding Pioneer Courthouse Square! Would be so pleased if PDX Pipeline could position my girlfriend and I on the other side of that fence 🙂 Interpol rules. Thanks!
I’ve never been to a show at Pioneer Square nor have I seen Spoon or Interpol. Would love to remedy all of those things by winning tickets to this show!
Would love to see Spoon again and Interpol for the first time. Sounds like a great night!
Hi! I would love to see Interpol… I never thought I’d be able to see Interpol- I’ve listened to them since I was a kid, and I’ve only liked them more and more since. it would be so amazing to be able to see them 🥺
My bffs absolute FAVORITE band is Spoon! She ALWAYS talks about them, i would love to take her!
A great friend will be visiting Portland for the first time. A show on pioneer square would be such a cool way to experience the city!
I’d love to go! My friends and I will be in town on these dates and LOVE spoon and interpol. I haven’t been to a live music event since 2017(?) maybe not even then so this would be huge!
Wow, I can’t believe Spoon & Interpol’s forces are uniting! It would be a dream to be picked, especially to surprise my best friend for her birthday – both huge fans and neither of us have seen either of them live before! I can foresee a nostalgic girls eve reminiscing about those ol’ Turn On the Bright Lights car make-outs and Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga dance nights 🙂
Today my heart swings 💕 Both bands are amazing, great musicians it would be so so cool to see them live right in the heart of Portland.
For me, this is one of the best shows of the year & I’d be super stoked to win these…!
I would be excited to win these tickets because I’ve listened to Spoon since I was 14 but never seen them in concert!
This would be a blast!!
Spoon rocks it… would love to see them downtown!
Woah. Spoon and Interpol?! Please, please pick me!
I am a huge Spoon fan and have recently started getting in to Interpol so this concert has been on my radar for awhile. My dad passed away last year of a rare disease and his birthday is the day after the show, and that day is also a big anniversary for my husband and me. Getting to see Interpol and Spoon the night before would be a great distraction but also an awesome way to celebrate!
One of my favorite bands who I’ve never been able to see live yet. I wanna WINNNNNNN!! 🙂
I’d like to go because Spoon reminds me of my college years and would love to have a taste of those days again!
Would love to be able to see this show!
Would love love love to be spooned up a pile of Interpol!
What a dynamic duo to see in P-town!
Yes please and thank you!
I’ve been listening to Interpol & Spoon (best albums 2002 & 2005 respectively) for too long without seeing ’em live! And I especially need this show to boost me after MY BIRTHDAY ON 9/11 national day of mourning. Also, please don’t “Gimme Fiction”, but instead hook me up with tix for Saturday 9/17? (Since I’ve gotta be up Monday morning 6:00 AM — because “we [don’t] have 200 couches where [I] can sleep tight”.)
This would be an epic date night for my partner & I….we could SO use a good show/time made worth while. Spoon-ing is one of my favorite things to share🥄
I love both band’s music and would love to see a show outdoors on a nice September night
I love these bands
The way we get by is by seeing this show.
Would be amazing to go to
Interpol is my favorite! I’d love a chance to see them live.
Two of the great bands of our time!
Love seeing shows down here, this is going to be a good one! Thanks!
Two of my favorite bands in one show?!?!
I want I want I want!!
You’re an incredulous mass of impossibly tiny subatomic particles, forged in the pulsing hearts of stars, swirling around each other in concert to produce a beautiful human being.
Two amazing bands- 1 awesome night. Pick me!
What a great show!!!
Sounds like a great concert and I’d love to experience it. Thanks!
Oh wow! I need to see spoon!
My mom and i bonded over both these bands – would love to take her (:
