After releasing their debut LP Telephono on Matador Records, the band signed with Elektra in 1998, but the contract was dropped soon after the band released A Series of Sneaks. In response the band released a two-song single titled The Agony of Laffitte (referring to Elektra A&R man Ron Laffitte). Eventually they signed to Merge Records.
Spoon has been met with widespread critical acclaim. Girls Can Tell, released in 2001, sold more copies than both their previous releases combined. Kill the Moonlight accomplished the same feat a year later. Gimme Fiction was released on May 10, 2005 and continued the trend of increasing popularity for the band.
Britt Daniel wrote much of the soundtrack to the 2006 film Stranger Than Fiction. Four tracks by Spoon are also featured.
The band released their sixth studio album Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga on July 10, 2007; those who purchased the first pressing also received a bonus disc titled Get Nice!.
Transference is their seventh studio album. It was released on January 18, 2010 in Europe, and on January 19 in North America, to moderately positive reviews.

- LyricsWe get high in back seats of cars
We break into mobile homes
We go to sleep to shake appeal
Never wake up on our own
And that's the way we get by
- LyricsI turn my camera on
I cut my fingers on the way
The way I'm slippin' away
I turn my feelings off
Why' made me untouchable for life
- LyricsPicture yourself in the living room
Your pipe and slippers set out for you
I know you think that it ain't too far
But I, I hear the call of a lifetime ring
Felt the need to get up for it
- LyricsBet you got it all planned right
Bet you never worry, never even feel a fright
Bet you got it all planned right
Never fit to worry, never even feel a fright
Single sleeps alone
- LyricsLife can be so fair
Let it go on and on
I can push for good
You got that cherry bomb
Blow out that cherry bomb for me
