All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen talks with Spoon frontman Britt Daniel and drummer Jim Eno about the band's latest album, Transference, and take questions from listeners posted in an online chat room. Transference, the band's seventh full-length studio release, shows why the band has been one of the most reliably gratifying bands of the past 15 years, with a tight mix of two-beat rhythms, spiky piano grooves and crisp guitars.
