Britt Daniel (Spoon) plays new songs at MusicFest Northwest this weekend


Britt Daniel (of Spoon) played a solo set at MusicFest Northwest this weekend in Portland, and by the accounts of those who were there, he absolutely stole the weekend with his vibrant performance. Daniel debuted three new songs, playing with Janet Weiss of Sleater-Kinney on drums.

Who Backs Your Money? (with Janet Weiss) - Britt Daniel

SlyOyster, who shot the video, reports that Daniel peppered the set with new tunes. In addition to the one above, he played "Writing To You In Reverse" (which has been making the internet rounds after being played at the Pitchfork Fest), and a new one described as "an aggressive uptempo number in the vein of their Telephono days -- you could almost here the Pixies influence in the tune’s rawness." Check out SlyOyster for more video and audio from the set.

@Indy There were so many bands I wanted to see this weekend and just couldn't! It was almost like the excitement of seeing so much great music was countered by the disappointment of knowing you were missing so much else.

I heard Monotonix, a band from Israel, stole the entire fest and was the set you had to be at.
