To celebrate St David's Day last week, I have been listening to a lot of Welsh music this week, which you may notice in this week's playlist!
Super Furry Animals - Golden Retriever
The Civil Wars - Barton Hollow
The video here is from Jools Holland's show, which is where I first heard these two. The guy reminds me of a cross between Johnny Depp and Jack White (visually).
The Shins - A Simple Song. Great if somewhat depressing video
Super Furry Animals - Hello Sunshine
Now that spring is upon us, this is particularly appropriate. If you're not familiar with the Super Furries, you might still recognise this song from (the best teen drama ever) The OC.
Lana del Rey - Million Dollar Man
My favourite LDR song so far, even if it sounds uncannily like the Spice Girls' Too Much (and I mean that in the nicest way possible). Presumably the man in question is Lana's daddy who funded her album.
Y Bandana - Siwgwr Candi Mel
This is a song by my favourite Welsh-language band. It's not their best song but sadly there isn't much of their music on YouTube. If you can, get your hands on a copy of Dal dy Drwyn/Can y Tan.
The Cribs - We Share the Same Skies
