Wilmington, Delaware’s The Spinto Band serves up geek-pop which reminds me of OK Go. The band’s third release, Shy Pursuit, brims with Disneyland-happiness cloaked in off-kilter lyrics. “Cookie Falls” opens with a swaying beat and soothing sing-songy vocals. Calypso beats provide the island vibe for “Muesli.” From its funky bass beat to its catchy chorus, “Take Out” stands apart.“Adda Lee” sounds very Latin with its twangy bango chords. If you like quirkiness and upbeat melodies then you’ll appreciate the value that Shy Pursuit adds to the iPod and gets you moving during your workouts.
