premiere: Gwenno shares the dreamy psychedelic video for “Tir Ha Mor” from her new album Le Kov


We're honored to share the gorgeous first single from Gwenno's entrancing new album Le Kov, written and sung entirely in her ancient mother tongue of Cornish, and due March 2nd on Heavenly. According to a press release, Gwenno's goal was to "create a document of a living language, explore her identity and the endless creative possibilities of a tongue that has a very small surviving artistic output, despite having been around for at least 15 centuries," and the shimmering, swirling psych-pop odyssey "Tir Ha Mor" is a lovingly reverent and almost mystical tribute to Peter Lanyon, the St...

Gwenno x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Y Gwefrau (The Charges)


I had to include Y Gwefrau as they went to the same secondary school as me and are from Cardiff. This is more at the pop end of the spectrum but I love this video, it's just young women being carefree and having a laugh and there's nothing more empowering than that...

Gwenno x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Fflaps


Excellent punk band, Fflaps, filmed this in Berlin in 1990. I love Ann Matthews's voice, it goes against every expectation or rule of what a female singer should sound like that a very conservative Welsh establishment has set over the years, and that is to be celebrated...

Gwenno x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Pop Negatif Wastad (Negative Pop Always)


I include PNW in every list that I get to make, and for good reason! Fun fact - the lead singer, Gareth Potter, had a role in massive BBC soap opera Eastenders as a youngster, and has formed many a band as well as this one...

They're a prolific and massively underrated band in my opinion and capture industrialised, inner-city living perfectly...

Gwenno x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Datblygu (Develop)


Datblygu are arguably Wales's seminal band. They have been a constant and consistent reminder of the love and frustrations of life, they have always sung in Welsh but that has never deterred the legions of fans that they've gathered across the globe, and rightly so - they're brilliant to listen to whether you understand what Dave is singing about or not...

premiere: Gwenno remixes Stealing Sheep’s Not Real


Former Pipettes front-woman Gwenno remixes the title track from one of our favorite records of the year so far, transforming Stealing Sheep's infectiously off-kilter pop gem "Not Real" into a chugging, hypnotically disorienting electro-kraut-pop jam...
