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.
This week's show is all about the music. Fewer gaps for speaky bits mean we get more amazing (mostly) new, (almost entirely) Welsh sounds.
For example, recorded live at last month's Gwyl Gardd Goll festival, we have Yr Ods headline set from the Y Nyth Stage on the Saturday night. There was proper dancing, drink spilling, snogging and festival mayhem during their set of irresistible electro indie. Open a warm can of lager, shut your eyes, barge into whoever may be beside you, and you'll almost recreate the experience. It'd help if you have a scale model of Bryn Terfel's mansion to hand...
There are also debut plays for Prince Edward Island (if Flaming Lips backed Arab Strap, this facetious comparison would tell only one of this album's many compelling stories); Golden Fable (the new project from Tim of Tim and Sam: a crisp winter morning perfectly sonicified); Stu Shaw (future disco re-interpretation of a Marvin Gaye classic); Boy Set Sail (top drawer pop punk) and Eve Goodman (prodigious, sunshine-voiced songwriter from Caernarfon).
Elsewhere, Ben Hayes inspires us with something amazing and too frequently over-looked from The Monkees. And there are 1st plays for amazing new tracks from all over Wales. Please see the playlist for further details.
Right - I'm on a mission this week to hear as much new music from all over Wales as is humanely possible. Please send download links/mp3s/recommendations to email@example.com.
Some guidance on sending music to the show is available on the BBC Wales Music blogs (part one of four).
Have an excellent week!
