Ultimate Ears’ Artist to Watch: Spoon

Spring has sprung and I, for one, couldn’t be happier. Winter is my Kryptonite. Fortunately, I have defeated winter again this year. Yes, you can thank me for spring! But I also bring you new music via our Artist to Watch program at Ultimate Ears, like so many other new things that Spring will bring…

Spoon was named band of the decade last year by Metacritic and to call them Indie heavyweights just doesn’t do them the proper justice since no one watches this type of boxing. Rather, they are the Manny Pacquiao of college radio playlists and their new album is riding the charts. We think this is their best one yet – the sound is brilliant and the minimalist recordings are refreshing, just like that first day of sun and 65 degree temperatures. The New York Times gave the album stunning praise and they are also brand new fans of Ultimate Ears. Having Spoon be part of the program is yet another huge accomplishment.

Listen to their awesomeness here.

Another spectacular recommendation in the books, right? I will pat myself on the back since you aren’t here. Stay close as we’ll check back real soon.
