Boomkat Product Review:
Glasgow's Spinning Coin present their new 7”, ‘Albany’ through The Pastels’ Geographic Music imprint.
"The band’s roots are all over the place but a simple love of playing together in their rehearsal space and almost never turning down shows has seen them coalesce a winning group sound in almost no time at all, becoming an important part of the UK’s always interesting DIY live music scene.
Drummer Chris White is part of the Winning Sperm Party collective, who document of a world of shadowy Glasgow music running all the way from the Glasgow Music Collective to Fuzzkill Records today. All the other members of Spinning Coin - Sean Armstrong, Cal Donnelly and Jack Mellin see themselves as primarily coming from this scene.
Where Spinning Coin branch out from things is in their cascading melodicism topped with some amazing shredding. This connects into a slightly different Glasgow music scene more associated with Orange Juice, Teenage Fanclub and, of course, The Pastels.
‘Albany’ is home-recorded but shows off the group’s easy flair for getting things to sound right without trying too hard. The accompanying video was directed by Roxanne Clifford of Veronica Falls."
