Way too long ago we held a contest challenging you to create an alternate ‘Best of Spoon’ album as a playlist, with the winner being decided by number of followers. After an endless delay (THANKS, GLOBAL PANDEMIC), the winning playlist has been pressed as a limited edition LP ; ‘All The Weird Kids Up Front (Ma?s Rolas Chidas),’ available for the first time this weekend at independent record stores as part of Record Store Day Drops. Find out how to get yours here. #RSD2020
As we count down to Saturday, the second runner-up, Blair's #MyBestOfSpoon, is available for your listening pleasure here.

Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile : KCRW Session Today, Amoeba Hollywood Instore Thursday 'Sea Lice By The Seaside' Webcast Next Monday,
We're a few days away from the release of Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile's hotly anticipated collaboration album, 'Lotta Sea Lice' and as you'd expect, they're an insane amount of activity surrounding this momentous event. After a Sunday afternoon set at San Francisco's Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival the duo visit KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic for a live broadcast starting at 11:15am pacific time TODAY. Thursday, there's a free show at Hollywood's Amoeba Records, who've somehow managed to obtain copies of 'Lotta Sea Lice' one day early. And on Monday afternoon, there's a Pitchfork Live webcast taking place from what's said to be Jimmy Page's former Malibu residence (this seems suspicious as we had it good authority he took his holidays in Cliftwood, NJ...or maybe that was Southside Johnny. Hard to remember sometimes)

This past Thursday night on CBS' "The Late Late Show With James Corden", Spoon debuted "I Ain't The One" from the forthcoming 'Hot Thoughts'. There were also appearances by John Goodman, a sloth and Chris Lombardi, not necessarily in that order, but we are only allowed to share a clip of the Spoon appearance (above).
Tonight at Rough Trade NYC, (64 N. 9th Street), you can pre-order the clear vinyl version of 'Hot Thoughts' and listen to the full album 4 days early in the comfort of the SONOS Listening Room. There's artwork on display by Christine Messersmith, free snacks, and a chance to win other, as yet unspecified prizes (which is not to say the snacks aren't going to be overwhelming)
Stream or preorder 'Hot Thoughts' (digital preorders receive "Can I Sit Next To You" and "Hot Thoughts" instantly)
As you've probably read elsewhere, West 4th Street's much beloved Other Music closed this past weekend after two decades of passionate curation/musical evangelism. Others have done far better than I in eulogizing this store and what it brought to New York City (and beyond) but suffice to say OM played an outsized role in the trajectory of more than a few Matador artists (see above). Consider this a belated thanks to Other Music's staff, ownership and patrons for their respective roles in making the planet a more interesting place.
Tonight at Bowery Ballroom, Yo La Tengo --- no strangers to Other Music --- are participating in Other Music Forever, alongside Julianna Barwick, Bill Callahan, Frankie Cosmos, Helado Negro, Menahan Street Band, Psychic Ills, Matana Roberts, The Tallest Man On Earth, Sharon Van Etten, and John Zorn’s SIMULACRUM. Tickets are sold out, however there's still some action on Stubhub as of this writing.

OK, we missed Black Friday by a few days, but if that means ONE LESS TRAMPLING this holiday shopping season, it was totally worth it. On December 3, we're releasing a limited edition, one-time pressing of a $5.99 list LP , 'It's Been A Business Doing Pleasure With You', featuring 9 songs from (most of) our 2013 releases. In addition to album tracks from Chelsea Light Moving, Majical Cloudz, Body/Head, Lee Ranaldo & The Dust, Iceage and Kurt Vile, there's a live version of Queens of the Stone Age performing "If I Had A Tail" at the 2013 iTunes Festival (Roundhouse, London), Savages' "City's Full" from last summer's KEXP session, and Yo La Tengo performing "Before We Run" in those same KEXP studios.
We don't have any copies for mail order, sadly, but hopefully you'll find one at your favorite record store after they're done sweeping up all the broken glass, blood, etc. from Black Friday. If you prefer, you can order a digital version of the comp. right now at the Matador Store.
Hey people of LA, after rocking New York, King Krule + the band are on their way towards you now. A few nights ago, they played to a sold out Bowery Ballroom and the night before a free all ages secret show at Alife in the Lower East Side.
The two LA shows, both at the Echo on the 17th and 18th sold out within a couple of days. To show gratitude and respect to the folks left out in the cold (including the 18 and unders) Archy is continuing his run of free all ages shows with a show at Space15Twenty THIS SATURDAY September 14. The show will start promptly at 2pm.
To help us keep attendance sensible you can purchase a copy of the record at Amoeba Hollywood starting THIS FRIDAY or at Space 15Twenty and get two wristbands to get into the show. If you’ve already bought the album, buy one for a friend, and take him/her out to the show while you’re at it.
Saturday 9/14 King Krule Live at Space15Twenty (1520 N. Cahuenga Blvd Los Angeles) 2pm
Buy The Album at Amoeba Hollywood starting this Friday September 13 or Space 15Twenty for Two Wristbands Guaranteeing Admission

It's a very specific filing, but this is a very specific event. KV just announced a free, all-ages solo acoustic instore at Music City institution Grimey's.
Check him out when you're wondering, "What am I gonna do today?" on Sunday.
And after this jawn wraps, be sure to catch Mr. Vile and his Violators at the Mercy Lounge that evening.
Well lucky you, out west-ers because in a few short weeks, Majical Cloudz are taking their intimate show to one of the most intimate settings of all; the free all-ages instore.
The band will be hitting four of our favorite California independent retailers on their way up the coast from San Diego to Santa Rosa. Details below.

That's right. You can check out Queens Of The Stone Age's guitar moves with 199 or so other people in a fucking record store in Jersey.
All you have to do is preorder ...Like Clockwork over at Vintage Vinyl starting NOW and get a wristband for entry to the instore (while supplies last). Of course the capacity is EXTREMELY limited to get your asses over there RIGHT FUCKING NOW to get a wristband with your copy of ...Like Clockwork. They probably won't last very long*.
And if you haven't listened to ...Like Clockwork yet, well, what the hell is wrong with you. Stream it NOW.
*They definitely won't last very long.
But if you don't live in the Live Music Capital you should still check out the band on their lengthy tour, on which the band is playing an absolutely stunning two-part set.
