SpindriftThe Los Angeles-based quintet Spindrift has developed a reputation for its cinematic sound – something that started with a score for a film that was then only an idea in the head of bandleader Kirpatrick Thomas: The Legend of God’s Gun, which later became a 2007 feature written and directed by Mike Bruce. One track for that film was used in 2008’s Hell Ride – executive-produced by Quentin Tarantino – and Thomas now has three additional film-score-composer credits with Spindrift.

But this tack for the band – playing at Rozz-Tox on May 19 – is a relatively recent development. Spindrift was formed in the early 1990s in Delaware, and was at that point an experimental psychedelic-rock band. It was only in 2001, when Thomas heard Ennio Morricone’s music for the Sergio Leone classic Once Upon a Time in the West, that his band changed course.
