Spindrift To Release The West on Beat The World November 11, On Tour Now

Already widely recognized as a touring force, a tireless group that frequently crosses the country, Spindrift recorded The West, their first “official” full-length, over a period of three years, in that rare time between shows. The album is, in the words of frontman Kirpatrick Thomas, a “pastiche,” music that pulls from earlier eras, from the Spaghetti Western, Eastern European klezmer, the sea shanty, Spanish flamenco, and American blues, but ties in notions of the present – druggy California pysch, Bruce Haack’s work in the electronic realm, Spacemen 3, over-population and over-consumption, and mostly, a respect for and affinity towards the last of the great unknown.

Spindrift recently embarked on another nationwide tour, and will play everywhere from Austin, Chicago, New York, and DC to Nashville, Cincinnati, Boise, and Rapid City, with plans for more touring nearer to The West’s release.
