Adam Walton playlist and show info: Sunday 20 November 2011

Tagged with:

This week's show is now available via the BBC iPlayer. Please visit the link any time between now and the start of the next programme.

We celebrate the crystalline vocal prowess of Rachel Lloyd & Matt Nicholls (performing live at this year's Focus Wales Festival). It's a beautiful set, marred by an errant CD that coughs and dies just before we reach the last song. We'll play that on next week's show. But it shouldn't diminish the beauty of the fine performances that preceded it.

Alan Holmes tells us about the first real, 'proper' band he can remember seeing come out of Bangor, Hot Water - featuring a voice that shouldn't be too unfamiliar if you're a (very) long-term listener to the show.

Ben Hayes links back to the excellent Jellyfish track he played last week, and plays something that'd make a cauliflower dance, such is the excellence of its Moogy groove.

I celebrate the production work of David Wrench - 'cause he's ace.

We have debut plays for Dirty Wordsmith, Mr Pelham and Shoot The Rabbit. I haven't had access to the BBC Introducing Uploader for a couple of weeks, so please (kindly) mail new releases/demos/gig info etc to themysterytour@gmail.com.

On the subject of gigs, I'm hosting two wonderful looking celebrations of Welsh music this week. Firstly, on Tuesday 22 November, a folkish winter warmer featuring the incandescent Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog (who graced the main stage at Green Man Festival this year) and the phenomenal Georgia Ruth (& band), 7.30-11pm at Telfords Warehouse in Chester, with crackling vinyl coming from DJs Elin Bach, me and the aforementioned Ben Hayes (Soundhog).

The next night (Wednesday 23rd November), BBC Radio Wales in conjunction with Goleuo, host Georgia Ruth & band and Dan Amor (playing tracks from his excellent new album Neigwl) at the Gwydyr Hotel in Betws Y Coed (8-11pm). I'll be DJing and it's FREE to get in.

Both events have been specially formulated to bring a glow of joy and yearning into winter-stricken hearts. Come along for amazing sounds and friendly faces. Apart from mine. I always look like a bulldog licking a nettle. It's concentration, and fear of someone requesting Rihanna.

Whatever you decide to do this week, I hope the show introduces you to some amazing sounds.

Same time next week?
