#75 the spinto band – pumpkins and paisley

every band has its own story, each one worth telling, but the origins of the spinto band ranks high on my list of stories worth passing on. founding member nick krill had found cracker jack boxes in his attic on which were scribbled songs penned by his grandfather, guitar player roy spinto, and this inspired him to form a band named in tribute to spinto, but featuring their own songs. 12 years and several records later, the spinto band is back with a new album, moonwink, out this october 7 on park the van records. “pumpkins and paisley” offers a satisfying glimpse into that upcoming lp, a joyously free exercise in pop that rides effortlessly on an irresistible hook that bursts back and forth on a perpetual sugar rush. if they aren’t afraid to name their band after grandpa, it’s no surprise they have no qualms producing unadulterated indiepop such as this.
