Rae Spoon's well-crafted songs come from an extraordinary place.
Now based in Calgary, the transgendered country folksinger completed tours of Europe, Australia and the U.S. before recording Superioryouareinferior (his fourth full-length) with co-producer and fellow singer/songwriter Lorrie å.
Spoon demonstrates maturity not just in his patient, textured songwriting but also in the solid production and thoughtful lyrics (especially on If You Lose Your Horses). Fans of bittersweet folk-punk should definitely check out Come On Forest Fire Burn The Disco Down, a standout track that manages to yearn, brood and rock all at the same time. Morrissey would be proud.
