I bought The Spinanes’ Manos on a whim two decades ago, and though I don’t reach for it on a regular basis, whenever I do, I totally fall for the band’s big, hook-y sound. Case in point, “Noël, Jonah, and Me.” Rebecca Gates’ riffs and Scott Plouf’s propulsive drumming here make for a tight, potent blend, with the result being some ‘90s indie-rock of the finest variety.
I had no idea this video existed, but I came across it in this Treblezine article about the upcoming Manos reissue, courtesy of Merge Records (it was originally released by Sub Pop Records).
