Often compared to The Flaming Lips and Pavement for its complex indie-pop sound, The Spinto Band draws from the music of Burt Bacharach, The Beatles, The Beach Boys and many other acts with Bs in their names. Click the link above to hear The Spinto Band perform live in concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia.

Independent in sound as well as production, the 12-year-old Delaware-based outfit didn't sign to a label until the release of its eighth album, 2005's Nice and Nicely Done. Moonwink followed this year, advancing the group's sound without losing The Spinto Band's infectious indie-pop charm.
