Dan Amor - Penwythnos Heulog
Info: Dan Amor hails from North Wales and recently featured on Irish blogger Barry Gruff's latest compilation CD with the above single, 'Penwythnos Heulog', a gorgeous piece of psych pop which has already been featured by Joe Donnelly at Dublin TXFM and BBC 6 Music.
Welsh artists have a strong tradition in producing great neo-psychedelia and indie-pop sounds, most notably from the likes of Super Furry Animals and Gorky's Zygotic Mynci. There is also an ability to do this in their native tongue, while garnering appeal outside of their borders, something that has completely eluded us here in Ireland as Gaeilge when it comes to contemporary music, why that is, I'm not sure, but that's another days work!
Amor's new single, 'Penywythnos Heulog' (Sunny Weekend) is as good as anything I remember enjoying from the previously mentioned bands, it's absolutely delicious. The vocals sound like something from a medieval monastery where the monks grew the wrong (or right, depends on the pew....) kind of mushrooms. The music is pop rich, The Beach Boys and The Kinks in a space-age blender, conjuring mental images of The Meanies up to all sorts of madness in the Yellow Submarine animation. Darn hyfryd o gerddoriaeth o Dan Amor!
