Dark Days / Light Years

A new Super Furry Animals album always makes me happy and although it might not be one of their best, it's a very pleasant album indeed.
The Super Furry's have got to be one of the most underrated bands in Britain and the best band to ever come out of Wales? I like them for many reasons and here are a few:
  • a very nice guy, called Philip Reese, introduced me to them
  • they're hard working and prolific, they make an album every other year and do side projects in-between
  • they've never had a hit single or that much success but the quality of their music is always consistently high
  • they're great live, wear masks on stage and use lots of film projections
  • i like their album sleeves, they're always graphic and they're never on them
  • they sing some songs in Welsh
  • and they love the Beach Boys
What's not to like about an album with tracks called 'The Very Best of Neil Diamond', 'Crazy Naked Girls', 'Cardiff in the Sun', 'White Socks / Flip Flops'.
Give it a listen, this weekend, for free on
