For a band who, technically speaking, never had an actual pop hit, Spoon put together an incredibly strong greatest hits album. The recently released Everything Hits at Once: The Best of Spoon is a reminder that the Austin-based band is one of this century’s most consistent and tuneful acts – and that they’ve always made great pop songs. In an episode of our Rolling Stone Music Now podcast, frontman Britt Daniel, drummer Jim Eno, and guitarist Alex Fischel join host Brian Hiatt to go through the making of their best songs, the discovery of their core sound, the tricky task of selecting and sequencing their compilation album, their plans for their next release, their favorite greatest-hits albums by other bands and much more.
