Late, late, late, late... sorry! Keen as I am to give you all of the information about this week's multithreaded, luminously patchworked quilt of the most interesting Welsh music I have heard, sometimes life gets in the way. Yesterday it was a freezer having a nervous breakdown and a daughter who has had the bleeding temerity to have a summer holiday from primary school. Selfish doesn't even begin to describe it.

I mean: how the heck am I supposed to immerse myself in new Welsh music and write cobblers about it when all of that is going on?

This week I splash around in the Taff with Hunters. Actually, they're 'just' in session but I thought it'd sound more dramatic if you got the impression we'd had to have a slo mo, underwater scrap with each other to get the session out of them. It's a super smart session, somehow melding leftfield nouse with tic-like melodies that are very difficult to unhinge once they've attached themselves. So, it sounds like Slint backing Tears For Fears. Almost. A bit.

Sonic subverter par excellence, Ectogram's Alan Holmes, reminds us of the youthful majesty of Crisialau Plastic.

Lara Catrin translates some very early Catatonia for those of us dysgu y Gymraeg.

A man called Ben (Hayes) spotlights a very uncelebrated facet of Cat Stevens' back catalogue.

And there is Fascinating New Welsh Music from all over Wales.

Send your demos to: themysterytour@gmail.com with a short biog + contact number.

Make 'em good. That's always a good idea.

Right, best go: I have 14 very soft Magnums to eat and my daughter's probably getting bored playing with that box of matches on the hard shoulder of the A55.

Have an excellent, music-filled week!

Diolch,

Adam
