See the Spinto Band This Friday

July 15th, 2009

The Wilmington, Del., indie rockers the Spinto Band, whose electronica-tinged songs have earned them comparisons to Of Montreal and Pavement, have been going at it since the mid-’90s. As the guys in the group, which features two sets of brothers—Thomas and Sam Hughes and Joey and Jeff Hobson—plus Nick Krill and Jon Eaton, began to receive musical hand-me-downs from their musician fathers, their interest in making and recording music blossomed. Momentum built, and the Spinto Band embraced the Internet as a means for getting their music to the people. Along the way, “Oh Mandy” became a bit of a sensation. Check them out playing that song on the BBC music show Later…With Jools Holland and then head to Mercury Lounge on Friday, July 17th.
