In anticipation of its opening night showcase at the South by Southwest music conference in Austin, NPR Music is offering an advance stream of the next release by Spoon, the band headlining the March 17 event. Transference, the third album by the Austin-based band, can be heard in its entirety, for free, through Jan. 18. Additional bands are to be added to the bill for NPR Music’s Stubbs showcase, which will be produced as a live broadcast and webcast here. Spoon’s set will kick off the band’s U.S. tour supporting the new album. More details here.
