Jackhammer : The Spinto Band

Found this song a while ago and meant to post it. The music video is pretty interesting, lots of fast-moving textures and quick cuts. It's reminiscent of Peter Gabriel's video for "Sledgehammer" back in the 80s. Coincidence? You decide.

Anyway, the Spinto Band hails from Delaware and has been around since '95. (Who knew?) The best part of this tune is definitely the dreamy, breezy guitar which makes for an funny juxtaposition in a song about a city, or getting out of one at least. Also, the song is delightfully short. Sometimes you don't need much.
