about

Taken from the 2021 edition of Spencer Cullum's Coin Collection. spencercullumscoincollection.bandcamp.com/album/spencer-cullums-coin-collection-2021

Spencer's single Seaside was inspired from missing the Cornish coastline of his home: "Seaside has a different story each verse. Innocent enjoyment as a child, how it can be a place of reflection and fear whilst it also taking note of an environmental consciousness."

“I wanted to write a very quintessential English folk record, but with really good Nashville players.” Cullum says of his Canterbury Scene conjuring album Coin Collection, name-checking Kevin Ayers, Robert Wyatt, Fairport Convention and Sandy Denny. The album manifests his love for psych-prog ground-breakers the Soft Machine, digs deep into cerebral ambient inspirations like Robert Fripp and Brian Eno and even krautrock icons NEU! “I’ve always wanted to mix krautrock music into folk and psychedelia,” he explains.

lyrics

Seaside, brought people in droves
And everybody cast there fishing line
Busy bee’s stay busy talking
While the captain of the ship cowers and hides
Seaside, bright colors in the sand
Buckets and spades for the children
Look out to the distance and ignore the empty roar
We are empty shells that need filling
Seagulls, suspended in time
There wings clinging to the cross winds
Too many people standing around pointing
Too many people to notice what’s within
Seaside, staring at your splendor
If I sink I wouldn’t mind
Seaside, timeless and tender
I just think I’ll float here til I die
Seaside, staring at your splendor
If I sink I wouldn’t mind
Seaside, timeless and tender
I just think I’ll float here til I…..
