This week's show is now available via the iPlayer. Apologies for the embarrassing lateness of this information. The early part of the week was swallowed up by a lot of last minute research I had to do for a Science Café recording at Bangor University. Then, the millisecond that was over my body treated me to a particularly incapacitating case of Man Flu.

It's not the first time my body has let me down, frankly. Not by a long chalk.

This week's show features a live set from Dan Amor recorded in the gloriously cosy environs of the Gwesty Gwydir in Betws-Y-Coed. Dan's new album Neigwl is out this week, and this set celebrates the woozy, harmony-soaked, mellow excellence of the album. Like Crosby, Stills and Nash if they'd come from Penmachno. Or Americana re-imagined Snowdonia-stylee.

Snowdonicana. As a piece of genre-defining nomenclature, It's not going to catch on, is it?

We pick up Rachel Lloyd and Matt Nicholl's excellent set from last week, that was crudely marred by a skipping CD-R. It features one of the best cover versions it has ever been my pleasure to play on the radio. It's not often, after all, that I get to play an interpretation of something great from the king of R&B (if you're thinking R Kelly at this point, please get to the back of the class, open the door, leave and never come back) Ray Charles. Great stuff.

Lisa Jen from 9bach comes aboard to tell us about their recent trip to Australia and their work with a collective of Aboriginal musicians called The Black Arm Band. And we get to hear a moving live recording of one of their collaborative pieces.

Huw Williams treats us to some great Welsh indie pop that has hitherto been rather under celebrated within our national borders.

Ben Hayes gets misty-eared for the Grumbleweeds. In tweed. It's a lovely moment, but one that may induce shrinkage or 'wet dog smell'.

Elsewhere we're fairly dripping musical excellence, most of it from Wales, including début plays for: Hell Money, Giant Monster Army, Stars and Flights, Jamie Bevan A'r Gwenddillion and Danny Gruff and the Peacemakers.

Please send demos/new releases/whatever you like to themysterytour@gmail.com as a high quality mp3 or download link.

Many thanks/diolch o galon,.
