Only half a month late...

April 14, 2010


We are excited to announce that there is a new Spinto Band song circling the internet. This one is released through the fine folks at buffet libre in order to help benefit Amnesty International. The song we contributed is called Prune Twins. You can stream it on the Peace website by clicking on The North America continent, then scrolling down on the next screen. We are there in between Asobi Seksu and Port O'Brien.

Prune Twins was recorded last summer in Highlands North Carolina with some friends who go by The Beast Pageant Orchestra. All the music was recorded one night, then the lyrics came to Nick in a dream... about prune twins.

The boys describe the whole project nicely in this press release:

PEACE, a unique initiative co-produced by Buffetlibre and Amnesty International Catalunya, is finally available, including more than 180 exclusive and unreleased songs by artists from more than 50 countries. The compilation is digitally available worldwide here (http://www.buffetlibredjs.net/) and can be downloaded after making a donation to Amnesty International Catalunya. The collected money will be used for AI’s investigation and action campaigns aimed at preventing cases of Human Rights abuses around the world.

Among the 182 artists participating in this project there are acclaimed musicians and exciting new talents from countries and territories such us USA, England, France, Spain, China, Mali, Japan, Congo, Senegal, Venezuela, Cuba, Israel, Palestine, New Zealand, Tibet, Turkey or Thailand, to name only a few.

All the songs included in PEACE are available for streaming at http://www.buffetlibredjs.net/peace.html as well as information on all artists participating in the project.

Dance around the world. Enjoy PEACE.

Enjoy this song and please contribute to the cause and spread the word. Thanks.
