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

Soft-Hearted Scientists' music has been an enduring source of wonder for my ears over the last eight years. They've eschewed every bandwagon that has passed through town, and - like the finest artists - focused solely on their own vision: songs of innocence in spite of the world raging around them.

This three song session was recorded at home - as many of their greatest songs have been over the years. There are few people who know how to wield a 12 string, a Bontempi rhythm section and the most evocative analogue synth sounds with as much skill as Nathan Scientist. A real treat and sanctuary.

Huw Williams comes in to remind us of Sandy -- any facts / memories or recollections of the band would be gratefully received.

Lara Catrin translates some Ty Gwydyr for us.

Ben 'Soundhog' Hayes mourns the passing of Deep Purple's Jon Lord - rock's undisputed king of the Hammond organ.

And in between all of the talking bits, there is excellent music from all over Wales. We have début plays for: Pulse Atlantica, Fflur Dafydd, The Dukes, The Knox, Jack Barnett, Hannah Amy and Memory Clinic.

Please send demos / new releases / all correspondence to: themysterytour@gmail.com (download link or high quality .mp3 preferred, please), or via the BBC Introducing Uploader.

Retweets of the iPlayer link earn you off chance booze tokens (or dandelion and burdock tokens, if you're underage). These can be redeemed if you see me in your local / convenience store.

Next week, an amazing live set and multicultural collaboration between 9Bach & the Black Arm Band recorded at Y Galeri in Caernarfon last week.
