Adam Walton playlist and show info: Sunday 15 August 2010

Tagged with:

This week's three hour feast of new Welsh music is smugly proud of the following:

1) a peripatetic cascade of perfectly-formed bleeps courtesy of Crash Disco! carefully moulded into the form of a 16 minute 14 second mix. Crash Disco is 18. Crash Disco has amazing melodic instincts. Crash Disco makes celestially inspiring tunes that could get a drunk slug up on its foot and dancing. He's a phemone... phomneomo... phenomenam... he's, er, really great.

2) Rhys Jakokoyak strokes his electronic fur in a very different direction. His music is filled with wide, bleak spaces all the more effective as a backdrop for sublime minimal arrangements and achingly beautiful melodies. He comes in to talk about his long-awaited debut album 'Aerophlot', out this week on Recordiau Peski. an album with which to gild the heart in your ears.

3) Alan Holmes, founder member of Fflaps/Ectogram, acclaimed record sleeve designer, resident expert on the un-crap at Recordiau Cob in Bangor, blesses the programme with reminiscences on The Major.

4) A Man Called Ben - having shaken the loose capacitors out of the Soundhog pig pen - invites us to reappraise Ultravox v.2 before the hairspray took precedence over the music making.

and 5) Welsh music from all over the country and the stylistic map. It's the blood in the show's veins and I'm always looking for a transfusion.

Please send donations of red sound rich in original haemoglobin (or an .mp3, if you prefer) to themysterytour@gmail.com

We have a letter box, too:
Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales, Library & Arts Centre, Rhosddu Rd., Wrexham, LL11 1AU

And I'm still keen for release / (key) gig info for the Welsh Music Calendar.

This coming Sunday night at 10pm, Rhyl's Bright Young People are in session and I will be talking to Matt from Wales' most unsung band, The Hepburns. Yes, he's the singer in an unsung band. That sounds like one of his lyrics. If he nicks it, remember where you read it first so I can sue.

I hope your week is filled with musical aceness. I'll certainly do my best to help.

Yours bleepily,
Adam
