Rae Spoon


Although the Canadian genre-variant musician Rae Spoon has been recording music for over a decade at the time of this writing, their first big breakthrough came with the 2008 album Superioryouareinferior, a folky electronic ode to Canada’s landscapes that was nominated for a Polaris Music Prize. (An acoustic version of “Come On Forest Fire Burn The Disco Down,” a song from the album about colonialism, can be viewed here on YouTube.) A documentaryalbummemoir trilogy about Spoon’s experiences growing up queer in a rural Pentecostal family was released in 2013. They teamed up with fellow performer and writer Ivan Coyote to produce Gender Failure, a collection of essays about life outside the gender binary, a subject on which Spoon continues to be interviewed.

Spoon’s Twitter account is available here; their Facebook here; and their Tumblr here. Their posting at the time of this writing is primarily concerned with upcoming tour information.
