SPOON LPVIII PROGRESS
Amigos — a few announcements: first, we are totally in the process of making a new Spoon record. We’ve all been hanging out at Jim’s a lot the past couple months and we’re still in the writing stages, but the shit is sounding good.
Some of the songs in progress:
The Rent I Pay
Let Me Be Mine
I Ain’t The One
Fresh From Your Pages
Give Me It
Meanwhile, Britt just finished a new 2-song single with Divine Fits which should be out soon and there will be a bunch of Divine Fits shows over the next few months:

And in other news, Jim Eno has started a record label! Named after his studio in Austin, TX, Public Hi-Fi Records is officially launching this week with the release of Nuestro Camino, the debut album from Austin-based B3 organ trio Dupree. The label will be entirely curated by Jim as an outlet for music he loves, for the unsigned artists he’s recorded, and as a place to issue special pressings of previously unreleased tracks from his array of artist sessions. He will produce and engineer each release, and all music will be released on limited-edition 12-inch vinyl with accompanying high quality digital downloads. You can visit Public Hi-Fi’s brand-new website to learn more about the project, the label and the studio here. And order Nuestro Camino here.
Also meanwhile, Eric has been living in Dallas, working on a follow-up to his solo record, producing bands, making art, and spending time with his fiancé and their dog. You can see what he’s been up to at http://www.ericharvey.com. His solo record is available on itunes and bandcamp. And if your band wants to record with him in Dallas you can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And since the last album Rob has quit smoking again, mastered the NYC subway system, and is opening a bar in Greenpoint, Brooklyn named Lake Street in the very near future.
