It’s been a strange 2010 for Britt Daniel and his band, Spoon. One minute they’re headlining Radio City Music Hall in New York City with young bucks Deerhunter in support, the next they’re a footnote to the Arcade Fire comeback by opening for Win Butler and his group at Madison Square Garden. Fortunately, Spoon decided to pay a visit to Jimmy Fallon’s studio while in the city on this jaunt, to perform “Nobody Gets Me But You” from Transference.
In truth, the Spoon/Arcade Fire match up makes perfect sense. As demonstrated by this performance, Daniel has become a past master at delivering slightly hollow anthemic rock tunes, which may not have a great deal of substance, but are pleasantly hummable for the few minutes or so they float by on a TV screen or YouTube clip. And they even found a couple of drums and some maracas for Questlove to stoically play throughout.
