Rae Spoon

November 24, 2008

Hailing from the Canadian prairies, Rae Spoon set out to tour the world in his early twenties. Back then his music was mostly country oriented but on his fourth album, the up-coming superioryouareinferior, Spoon has a gone towards a more advanced sound, blending the country with bluegrass, indie rock and experimental nuances.

As a young transgendered artist, Rae Spoon has found inspiration in the darker sides of being open about his identity, resulting in some of the most beautiful songs I’ve personally heard in a long time. He blends hope with fear, reassurance with despair, taking you on a roller coaster ride of emotions.

While his previous albums have only been released digitally, superioryouareinferior (out on October 7th) will also be available as a physical album. I highly suggest that you pick up a copy, regardless of its format. This is definitely one of the best albums of the year for me.
