Spoon: Fallon Vid, New Bonus Track

Sure, this vid was taken about two weeks ago when Spoon was in town to play Madison Square Garden with The Arcade Fire, but the delay doesn't make it any less awesome. Two bassists, two drummers, and a whole lot of awesomeness finds the band performing a killer version of "Nobody Gets Me But You". All that, and the apparent revelation that Britt Daniel has (at least for the time being) renounced his fitted shirt fetish in favor of an all-white, tee shirt topped ensemble.

On top of the awesome vid, we also discovered that the band had dropped a bonus track on their website that managed to slip by us in July. The fantastic "early rehearsal" of "Something To Look Forward To" has slightly tweaked lyrics and is wonderfully organ-heavy. The mp3 is ominously labeled with an "08" at the beginning - what we wouldn't give for the rest of that tape! In the meantime, we'll just have to enjoy this one track (below) to the fullest extent of the law.
