Adam Walton playlist and show info: Sunday 8 May 2011
This week we get to revel in some excellent, new Welsh artists who - to the best of my knowledge (limited, admittedly) - have never before graced the nation's airwaves.
Please visit this link any time between now and the start of the next programme to listen.
(If you're at all familiar with Departure, track 1 on The Moody Blues' In Search Of The Lost Chord, then please read out the next paragraph in a similarly histrionic voice.)
Marvel at Dauwd's organic and emotive electronic panoramas! Gasp at the expansive muscularity of TOTSO's riffs! Luxuriate in the folktronic verdancy of Jeweller's arpeggios! Pulsate in time with Darren Rhys' minimal genius! Whimper under bombardment from The Undercrackers' fuzzed up filth! Crazy pogo bedroom slamdance along with Survivalist's rambunctious guitar mangling! Raise you hands in the air and your hearts in your chest to I'll Fight With Fire and collapse in a sweaty heap while Ladies Love A Superhero pound upside your head gleefully, with the kind of shameless, pop punk exuberance that makes anyone over the age of 21 insanely jealous and witheringly cynical.
Then, breathe out.
It's quite a selection of vital and inspirational new Welsh talent.
More newness to salivate my music metaphor glands to email@example.com (high quality .mp3 or download link).
Or via the BBC Introducing Uploader - which I know sounds like a piece of machinery in one of those terrible Star Wars prequels, but is - in fact - a handy way for music people to get their sounds to the likes of me, Bethan Elfyn and Jen Long.
Elsewhere Huw Williams - front person with The Pooh Sticks, svengali in platforms, agent provocateur and archaeologist of excellent, ancient Welsh musical artefacts - reminds us of Tony Sheveton.
Ben Hayes gets all in a lather for Jonesy - early '70s proggish excellence, rather than the former Radio Cymru presenter.
And I go for the 'Bad Workman Blaming His Tools' world record. I'm not giving anything away, but I will be happy to sign any copies of the Guinness Book of World Records 2012 for you for a small fee.
Next week is our celebration of Welsh music on vinyl-only.
It took two days to record and aged me by 12 years.
But it was all worth it, if it entertains and beguiles you.
Have an excellent week.
