Adam Walton playlist and show info: Sunday 26 December 2010

Tagged with:

This week's show is my three hour mixtape of the best Welsh sounds it has been my pleasure to play in 2010. I played over 1200 different pieces of music in the last 12 months. Trimming those down to less than 60 was an enormously difficult challenge. I've left things on the cutting room floor that I love dearly: great songs or pieces of music from the likes of Paper Aeroplanes, Exit International, D.E.R. Collective, Ookami, Yr Ods, Drains, Straight Lines, Jakokoyak, Evariste Galoise, Jen Jeniro and many more. These are the names branded into my conscience, but the surfeit of excellent music that is missing is empirical evidence that it has been a Very Good Year Indeed.

I hope it's an intriguing snapshot of the Welsh music the show has celebrated this year. It's moulded entirely by my subjective tastes, of course. These are my favourite Welsh sounds of the year not an attempt to present you with an all-encompassing Best Welsh Music of 2010. I'd be intrigued to hear what you would have included. There's plenty of space in the comments section below!

And so the search for the most interesting and original Welsh talent continues into 2011. If you have any music you're particularly proud of, or you've heard something incredible at a friend's house or at a recent gig, please share your excitement. Demos should be sent as download links or .mp3's to: themysterytour@gmail.com and you can post CD's / vinyl to:

Library and Arts Centre
Rhosddu Road

I'm (still) particularly interested to hear from artists in Mid Wales. Looking at the geographical scope of the show, that is the major blindspot and I'd love to redress that next year.

2011 looks set to be an amazing year at BBC Radio Wales: Radio Wales Music Day 2 will be officially announced early in the new year; Bethan Elfyn's Saturday evening show is a great showcase for Welsh talent and the Evening Show, Frank Hennessy and the playlist in general provide even more opportunities for Welsh artists. I can't wait to hear the surprises - the hitherto unknown musical visionaries - who are around the many hidden corners of the next 12 months.

Back to this week's mixtape. I do think that what is contained therein is fascinating, imaginative and inspirational. I hope you feel the same way.
