The lead up to the recent Miracle On Tremont show at the Orpheum found us chasing pop stars around Boston, blindsiding them with stupid questions and cornering ‘em for their precious insights. Two of our hometown Passion bros dropped truth on “homo-erotic frat boy” fans, Phoenix chalked their success up to a serious list of studio snafus and the drummer in Spoon regurgitated PR dribble about a “dirty” new album.
The end of the year is often regarded (among writerly types, anyway) as a time for looking back. But it's also a time when we look forward to what lies ahead of us. And one of the surest bets for 2010? That'd be Transference, the forthcoming record from SPOON, who've been pretty reliable in the past. We don't have video of any of the new songs they performed at WFNX's Miracle on Tremont Street concert at the Orpheum last week, but instead, we've got old favorite "The Way We Get By."
