Delaware's The Spinto Band have been holding it down for almost 10 years now, but it wasn't until their song "Oh Mandy" became a bit of an underground hit a couple of years ago that they really started to get noticed. After that they went out on tour with a bunch of high-profile acts including the Arctic Monkeys, Art Brut and We Are Scientists, and the rest, as they say, is history. Now they are finally ready to follow-up on that success with a new album, and yes, friends, Moonwink is almost upon us. It offers more of the same kooky melodies, jangly guitars and faint synth hooks, sort of like a gentler, cuter version of Pavement if Stephen Malkmus really had cut his hair after all. This is the kind of poppy indie rock that you shouldn't have to feel guilty about loving. Moonwink will be out on September 9th via Park The Van Records.
