Formed in 2012, Let Spin is a collective that forges the progressive post-jazz scenes of London and Manchester. The band brings together four top genre-crossing instrumentalists from around the UK. Just two months after their first rehearsal and subsequent UK tour the band recorded their eponymous debut album, released in February 2014 on the Manchester-based Efpi label.
Musically egalitarian, the band’s output is varied without being wayward, diverse without feeling unfocused – riffs and grooves rub shoulders with rowdy free playing and softer melodies, and despite the imaginative mixture of ideas there’s a cohesive element between the musicians that ties the overall sound together.
The members are Moss Freed (Moss Project), Chris Williams (Led Bib), Ruth Goller (Acoustic Ladyland, Oriole, Melt Yourself Down, Moss Project), Finlay Panter (Beats & Pieces).
