The songs on Memory Dust aren’t b-sides. The recordings began during sessions for Spoon’s Grammy-nominated album, Lucifer on the Sofa, but were left unfinished. Following the record’s release and at the tail end of a year-plus of intense touring, the band came back to the sketches with renewed energy and fresh perspective. The completed tracks retain a touch of Lucifer’s character – rock ’n roll music, played in real-time – but stretch out hypnotically.
Lucifer on the Sofa is Spoon’s 10th album and its purest rock and roll record to date. Texas-made, it is the first set of songs that the quintet has put to tape in its hometown of Austin in more than a decade. The album has since swept 2022 year-end lists and returned the band to No. 1 on Billboard’s AAA chart for the first time in five years.
