The elements incorporated into this band's sound should not make any sense alongside each other, but they do. Infusing backwoods jangle with electro pop and an overall jam band sensibility, the Spinto Band conjure up a refreshing mix that simultaneously emancipates your body and your soul. In the course of the first two songs alone, one can detect influences ranging from the experimental quirkiness of bands like Primus, to the jagged power chord riffs associated with Nirvana and their punk brethren. During the performance of the song Needlepoint, the band's keyboardist interjects a new wave synth section which is reminiscent of early Eighties staples Blondie. The Spinto Band glides seamlessly through this wide array of arrangements and influences, bobbing their way through their set list with the audience mimicking their onstage euphoria. With such utterly energetic performances such as this, the Spinto Band proves that it is one of the acts from the indie pool that has the prowess to go the distance.
