Ken’s Pick: In One Wind at Rockwood Music Hall

In One Wind

In One Wind creates pop/jazz songs that sound country, and indie rock songs that sound like cinematic scores.”

I wrote that back in August, and it’s STILL true. They have a truly unique sound in an ocean of “unique sounds.” In One Wind is a fighting vessel out of Brooklyn, agile and swift, but also strong with just a bit of danger.

A regular crew of six, they’ve been known to increase their “hands on deck” by one, two or three, and firmly at the prow is the sea-beaten figurehead, Angelo Spagnulo. I call Angelo the figurehead rather than the captain of the ship, because he is less a manager who pushes and pulls at a wheel to direct things and more like a face in the spray, cutting through the waves in whatever direction they happen to be headed in.
