Some of our finest local music journalists are enjoying it too,
just saying stuff like...
- "Gets better every time, and feels like a thousand little exploding suns when the chorus hits. So good." Don't Need No Melody
- "After only a few months of playing together, those who haven’t caught them live have had to go on only a few videos of performances to get any idea of what they are missing" Gus Stephens, Don't Be Shit Zine
- "Pimp's aural fug with make you feel compelled to return to it again and again." Glasgow Podcart
- "From sprightly opener Hanging Gown and the melancholic first single Albany to shameless earworm Late Late Late and the menacing Neverends, (“hatred is a dangerous feeling,”) Spinning Coin’s first effort wears its heart on its sleeve and doesn’t disappoint. Lip-smackingly loveable indie pop tied up in knots." Ted Ralph, Mangroves
- "Usually when someone whinges at me for not writing about their music more often the response is polite on the surface but pretty much just ‘fuck off’ in my head." Matthew, Song By Toad
- "イージットレコードが何年も前からずっと追ってきたSean Armstrong（ソロに加えて、ブログでも取り上げたThe Yawnsでもおなじみ）、最近の注目株Passion Pusherでも活動中のベーシストCal Donnelly、Plaaydohなどで活動していたドラマーのChris White、そしてSmack Wizardsなどで活動しているJack Mellinの四人組。" Eejit Records, Japan
- "Polished enough to be audible and not just a demo, lo-fi and laid back enough to retain that effortless cool vibe, the track will swim around your head for hours after listening. " Scottish Fiction
- "Sean Armstrong, one of the singers in Spinning Coin, has just made available his solo version of 'Albany' and it's a dreamy, Alex Chilton-like affair. Plain lovely." Not Unloved
here is a video track of that Pimp song, which will not feature on this tape:
