The Spinto Band

Premiere: “The Sheriff” MP3

Nov 11, 2011

Listen to this track

Indie-pop quintet The Spinto Band are preparing to release Shy Pursuit in 2012. It's their third wide-release LP and seventh album overall. Before that, the Wilmington, Delaware outfit will drop film scores for The Beast Pageant and Biba! DemocracyBiba! Democracy's director Ben Bloodwell says it's "an honest and unabashed portrait of the peculiar democracy found on the island of Tinian."

Check out a download of Biba's Spaghetti Western instrumental, "The Sheriff," above. The tumbleweed-conjuring guitar work is remiscent of Neil Young's improvisatory soundtrack for Dead Man. The one problem with the track is that it lasts only two minutes. Thankfully, the documentary's full score will remedy that situation. Its tropical grooves are worth your attention. All of these new releases will be available on the group's own imprint, Spintonic Recordings. See East Coast tour dates with Jukebox the Ghost over here.
