NYE Party with The Spinto Band

The Spinto Band

Ring in the New Year with old friends and new, and party with Delaware’s own Spinto Band!

Nine months after the release of Shy Pursuit, The Spinto Band swiftly returned with a new full-length record, Cool Cocoon. Recorded again at their Delaware studio and released on Spintonic Recordings, the album represents a remarkable change of pace. There is more collaboration between songwriters, more spontaneity in the recording process and a distinctively focused sonic direction. Combined, these elements have formed their most cohesive album to date.

Like the caterpillar and the moth, the recordings on Cool Cocoon have elements which are related yet disparate. The tight pop arrangements of "Amy + Jen" are in stark contrast with the airy abstractions of "Static", which are both juxtaposed against the vastly stripped down "Look Away". These songs are wholly different beings who all share the same DNA. The record often combines their pristine studio production with more of the carefree experimentation from the band's early basement recording days. As heard on the debut single "Shake It Off", the song quickly falls from buoyant piano pop into a murky sea of cassette tape warble. Many of the songs rely on this balance of order and entropy, both sonically and spiritually.

All in all, it's something you'd expect from the Spinto Band: familiar, but also like nothing you've ever heard. There is a keen awareness of their past connected with a look towards the future. To hear such contrast within a modern pop record is refreshing, and it is even more rewarding when these variations and oppositions work sympathetically with one another. With Cool Cocoon, you're hearing a time-lapse of The Spinto Band's metamorphosis.

High Kick

Following the success of "High on Christmas 2: The Rise and Fall of the Kick", the bands second musical, HighKick is taking shelter in their West Philadelphia Studio to write and record a new full length album.

Known for their high energy shows and on stage antics the quartet utilizes vocal harmonies and overdriven guitars to captivate audiences.

" (HighKick) captured my attention through their stage humor ", says Tristateindie.com." HighKick put on a hell of a show. Being a stickler for folk-punk influenced music, I warmed up to these guys quick
