Looking for something to get you out of a funk and put an end to those nasty winter doldrums? Yes? Then The Spinto Band is just what you need. The Delaware sextet began writing music in 1996 when, as a high schooler, frontman Nick Krill discovered unused song lyrics his grandfather had written on the back of Cracker Jacks boxes. They’ve since put forth three studio albums as well as three EPs. On February 5th, they’re due to release their fourth LP, Cool Cocoon.
The album features a lively, genuine sound which is nothing if not addictive. The tracks are varied in texture and tone but consistently really engaging. Quirky melodies, assured vocals and colorful instrumentation set Cool Cocoon apart, making it a must-have on your winter playlist.
The Spinto Band will be making their way through NYC on February 22nd with a show at The Mercury Lounge.
