Let Spin - new album and UK tour 2022 / 23.

Monday, September 19, 2022

Let Spin will release their new album "Thick As Thieves" on Friday November 18th 2022. They will be touring extensively in the UK in late 2022 and early 2023. Press release attached.

We have received the following press release;

Let Spin: Thick As Thieves.


Thick As Thieves marks a decade since Let Spin’s formation and is the band’s fourth album release. Out on Friday 18th November in CD and digital formats on the Efpi Records label.

Formed in 2012, Let Spin are super-group featuring some of the most highly acclaimed UK jazz and new music musicians. The album marks a divergence for the band in terms of working methods and features adventurous post-rock, experimental jazz music.

Adventurous and free-flowing, Thick As Thieves is a nimble and dynamic outpouring of ideas and musical empathy. Whilst the unshackled phrasing of the Paul Motian Trio, the low-end, post-punk riffs and rhythmic pedals of Zu’s Carboniferous, the hymnal searchings of Albert Ayler, the sonic textures of Ribot’s Scelsci Morning or the irreverent post-rock stylings of Jim Black’s AlasNoAxis might suggest an aesthetic starting point, Let Spin have created a powerful and expressive album full of vitality and purpose, one which is original and daring and one which places Let Spin as a unique voice on the contemporary European scene.
