Well worth a bent rule

This week's show is a quick forage through some of my frazzled recollections of a week spent compering and DJing on the Walled Garden Stage at last weekend's marvellous Green Man Festival.

As this is also the week that the shortlist for this year's Welsh Music Prize was announced, I thought it would be an interesting exercise (and a great listen for you, first and foremost) to play the best of the international artists who played The Walled Garden alongside tracks from the 12 shortlisted albums.

Which rather bends our Welsh-only remit... but it's well worth a bent rule, truly.

I also speak to Charlotte Church about Three, her expansive and fascinating new EP. Something that shares some of the DNA of Talk Talk's truly seminal (the word is used too frequently) Spirit Of Eden album, married to Charlotte's remarkable voice, is bound to boggle the ears.

Only one debut play on this week's show - due to the music rich alluvium deposited elsewhere on the playlist by the Welsh Music Prize and my Walled Garden highlights. They're called Klobb and they're Brad's - formerly of Gallops - new musical adventure.
