Set in Williamsburg's own Sound Fix Records, the lanky Britt Daniel, most notably as the lead singer of the everlasting indie group Spoon, warmly greeted the small gathering of fans and thanked them for waiting in the cold (it was pretty cold). Quickly strumming into "The Mystery Zone", one of the eleven tracks from Spoon's latest effort Transference, Daniel's raspy voice stretched through the intimate record store; after the song, he talked for a minute or two on how he used to live in the same building that Sound Fix was affixed. He then jumped into Tranference's first single, "Written In Reverse", where his raspy voice was most apparent through the four song set. With little time wasted, Daniel began playing a familiar tune in "The Beast and Dragon, Adored", the opening track to Spoon's 2005 release Gimme Fiction. Thanking the crowd once more, Daniel played his final song, the popular "I Summon You"; another track from Gimme Fiction. All in all, it was a short but sweet set by one of indie's best. Videos of the four songs performed are below:
