Spinning Coin – Permo

Over the space of three years, two singles and countless gigs, including tour supports with Teen- age Fanclub and Real Estate, Spinning Coin have determinedly made their music heard: beauti- fully rough-hewn guitar pop that takes in frustration and escapism, but also gracefulness and splendour. Their first album, Permo, recorded with Edwyn Collins at his AED Studios, and at Glasgow’s Green Door with Stu Evans, captures this balance perfectly. It’s an album both of bold steps and of simple gestures, coming from a group who have found, seemingly effortlessly, a con- fident, unpretentious way of working together.
