Learned about The Spinto Band via Last.fm. They were added to the rotation and I happily welcomed them into my Library. Thier latest album “Moonwink” has an innocent quality capturing the feeling of a summer love or beach vacation. When the old station wagon was packed to the brim and in the midst of teen angst one rolled their eyes at the thought of spending the entire summer away from all your friends and stuck with the family. But little did you know that the cutest boy/girl you had ever seen would only be a few beach houses away. The fair would roll into town and as the two of you danced in the sea breeze and shared cotton candy, The Spinto Band played in the background. The Soundtrack of the 1940’s summer you wish you had, but never did!
Listen and Be-friend The Spinto Band.
