Adam Walton playlist and show info: Saturday 4 February 2012
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.
This 'message' was dutifully typed out at 2:37am on Sunday morning - but it has taken me five days to realise that it got led astray somewhere along the labyrinthine passages of the internet, and didn't get sent or delivered.
"What are you up to now?"
"I'm just off to spam I mean, inform, a few hundred folk about Adam Walton's new music show."
"Fancy a pint instead?"
"Aye, why not. Just let me find a grid I can tip all of these down..."
This is irritating news because, presenter notwithstanding, this is quite a show. We have all of the new tracks from Y Niwl's live set at Crackling Vinyl last week. And it's very good indeed. Actually, It's better than that but I'm trying to hold back on the hyperbole: a Lent for my lexicon, if you like.
We have new Future Of The Left. A first play of one of the tracks from their forthcoming album The Plot Against Common Sense (released on 28 May - mark it in your digital filofaxes, now).
The song is called City Of Exploded Children and iTunes is helpfully telling me that it's my most listened to track of 2012. A rare demonstration of good taste.
At some point on Saturday morning I stumbled across a tweet from @KaptinIsDead, head honcho of the excellent Chrome Kids music blog. His Tweet pointed me in the direction of a brand new, summer-infused, bass-enhanced mixtape from Cardiff's Mr Healan. It's called Hot Wheels & Sun Shades Vol 1. It's 47 minutes long. When I was shivering through a light hangover in my box bedroom (that I laughably call an office) on Saturday morning, it sounded like manna from heaven. Some brilliant fat synths rivetted together by skippy beats that'd make Snowdon cut the rug.
We have the whole thing for you.
Elsewhere Alan Holmes highlights the hitherto under celebrated links between North Wales and the Sisters Of Mercy by playing some James Ray & The Performance.
Ben Hayes treats us to something whimsical and almost scholarly from Jake Thackary.
And there is music. Oodles of it, including debut plays for the brilliant Serein record label and Christiaan Webb.

Download links and/or mp3s preferred, please.
Many thanks / diolch o galon, Adam Walton.
