Spoon Reissue Early Recordings, Tour With Death Cab (news!)

Kati Llewellyn reports:
Remember Merge's plan to reissue the first two Spoon records sometime this year? Well, it seems that sometime is upon us. eBay hotcakes Telephono and the Soft Effects EP will be re-released on Merge come July 25. The pair will be packaged together as a double-disc; while no bonus tracks have been tacked on to either album, the video for "Not Turning On" will be included.

Speaking of videos, Spoon recently debuted the Ryan Junell-directed clip for "The Two Sides of Monsieur Valentine" on their site. So scope that out.

Spoon will soon venture outside of their computer monitors to make appearances at our own Pitchfork Music Festival as well as a few California dates with Death Cab for Cutie and Mates of State. Indie Gimme nonfiction:

07-30 Chicago, IL - Union Park (Pitchfork Music Festival) *
08-11 Berkley, CA - Greek Theatre #
08-13 Los Angeles, CA - Greek Theatre #
08-15 San Diego, CA - Embarcadero Marina #

* with Os Mutantes, Yo La Tengo, Devendra Banhart, Mission of Burma, Aesop Rock, the National, Jens Lekman, Tapes 'n Tapes, Chin Up Chin Up, Diplo, Matthew Dear, Spank Rock, Glenn Kotche, Tarantula A.D., Tyondai Braxton, CSS, Chicago Underground Duo, Bonde Do Role
# with Death Cab for Cutie, Mates of State

As previously reported, Spoon will spend much of their summer vacation holed up in drummer Jim Eno's home studio, recording with co-producer Mike McCarthy. If all goes according to plan, the new album will see an early 2007 release. Also in the works is a Britt Daniel solo record, slated for completion later this year.
