Adam Walton playlist and show info: Sunday 11 July 2010

This is the link to this week's trip through the highlights of what has fizzed loudest and most fascinatingly in my new Welsh music inbox over the last seven days.

As well as the (super smart) music, David Wrench concludes his introduction to his new album Spades & Hoes & Plows, an album that digs around at the earthy roots of a folk music far removed from convivial harmonies and real ale. These songs were, frequently, the sound of the disenfranchised and desperate and David (and his collaborators, The Black Sheep) have wrought these interpretations in suitably dark, uncompromising tones.

Huw Williams (or, Hue if you're as excited as many of us are by the prospect of the imminent Pooh Sticks' reunion) waxes lyrical about Welsh chanteuse almost-on-the-verge-of-being-forgotten-about, Cindy Williams. Her 60's single is a sublime piece of girl pop. As you will hear!

I dribble through some anecdotes from Saturday's historic TJ's in the Square gig in Newport: a tribute to the late, great John Sicolo - detailed more fully (and a little more coherently) here.

Ben Hayes tries to persuade us that there was more to Emerson, Lake and Palmer than spinning pianos and histrionic Musicianship (all those virtuoso arpeggios merit a capital 'M').

And music glues it all together: stickily and with great aural fascination.

This week, debut plays for Scams, Wickes, Cry Raphael, Witches Drum and Violas.
