Adam Walton playlist and show info: Sunday 11 December 2011
Our special guest this week is Bangor's fuzzy-haired weaver of song, Huw M. Huw's new album, Gathering Dusk, is as delightful and refreshing as a mountain stream. It sparkles with melody, shimmers with wondrous arrangements and glows with humanity. Yep, it's got most of those light-related verbs pretty much covered. Imagine a beautiful heart made out of folkish sound and you're partway there. Buy the album, or listen to the tracks Huw and I talk about, and you'll get to go the whole hog.
Our own hog, of the Sound variety, comes in to tell us about DIY evangelists, Desperate Bicycles.
Huw Williams brings in the awe-inspiring, Shirley-Bassey-influencing larynx of Dorothy Squires. A woman whose recordings are almost as big as her personal life was fascinating, and - ultimately - more than a little sad.
Pete Lawrie treats us to an exclusive play of his new Until the Ribbons Break project... a musical endeavour that aims to celebrate the random joy and sonic pleasure of the compilation tape.
And I have fascinating music from all over Wales.
Please send new releases/demos and gig info to email@example.com.
Have an excellent week. If you hear anything great, please let me know about it. You're my spies, and excellent spies to boot.
