“Post Explosion: Jon Spencer sings the hits and slings that grit”

“It’s not my first choice,” Spencer says of working alone in a recent chat with Vanyaland. But in a period of downtime following a deactivation of the long-running Blues Explosion and a lull in other projects, the solo approach arose out of necessity. Calling from outside Austin, Texas — where he and his backing band are a little more than a week into a tour that brings them to Great Scott on Friday (February 1) — Spencer recalls writing alone in his basement practice room, “spitting out ideas, just plucking away at a guitar,” in a process he’d characterize as “atypical.”
