Spindrift Premiere New Video “When I was Free”
New Album “Classic Soundtracks” Out May 10th

Western tinged psychedelic unit, Spindrift has premiered a new video for the song “When I Was Free” on IFC.com. The video was directed by Rob Bray as a homage to photographer Stanley Sanger.  Sanger, an enigmatic photography legend led a solitary and mysterious existence.  He captured thousands of images of Spindrift in the desert at Hicksville Tralier Palace before disappearing.  A pioneer in the timelapse effect, painstakingly shooting each image and developing by hand, this video is animated by Bray with the thousands of images Sanger shot of Spindrift.  His lone instruction via a note to friend Rob Bray was “Rob, the image must live, as the moment will die.  Always S.”  
“When I Was Free” will appear on the band’s new full-length “Classic Soundtracks: Vol.1” which has been confirmed for a May 10th release date. The album will be the band’s first release with Xemu Records who recently released Dead Meadows “The Three Kings” project and the morning after girls new album “alone”. Stylistically diverse, the songs range from Bollywood-influenced funk to haunting psych, stripped down noir to dark country, with a good measure of their trademark rousing western thrown in as well.
Highly cinematic in their sound the band is doing a video for each song on the album or have a song accompanying a film trailer, all of which will premiere on IFC.com.  Two videos have already premiered includingTheme From Confusion Range by director Simon Chan and Shadytown (Theme From Hollywood Play Girls)by director JX Williams.

The band is currently on a eight week European tour including stints with Black MountainKurt Vile and Dead Meadow.  A national U.S. tour is to be announced shortly as well.  All info at the band’s re-launched websitewww.Spindriftwest.com
