this week's show: the Loves in session, Martin Carr, Ann Matthews, Huw Pooh on Y Blew, Y Ffin festival + much more
Here's the iPlayer link & playlist for last night's full-to-the-seams celebration of mostly-new, mostly-Welsh music.
Contained therein you will find:
3 dayglo garage pop session tracks from The Loves whose new album, '3', is out now on Fortuna Pop!
Martin Carr's Musical DNA. The former musical visionary behind the Boo Radleys & bravecaptain shares 4 of the songs that were most influential in his evolution as an artist. All of this in advance of the release of his luminously soulful and beautifully-crafted new album, Ye Gods (and Little Fishes). Over the years, Martin has introduced me to some artists and songs that have become lifelong passions... here's hoping that the 4 songs he chooses on this week's show do the same for you.
Ectogram's Ann Matthews gives us her monthly audio blog, bookended by a couple of songs from the far too infrequently celebrated Slapp Happy.
Huw Pooh takes his archaeological trowel to the the first bona fide Welsh rock 7" from Y Blew.
Sophie and Andy from North Wales' leftfield culture magazine, theAbsurd, come in to tell us about the debut Y Ffin festival that they're helping to stage in Mold on Saturday 25th July.
and Soundhog grabs some Pigbag off the shelf with which to inspire us.
+ we have some excellent new music for you to check out.
