Welsh. Bugled by [a]John Peel[/a] and Steve Lamacq as “excellent/ mighty/wonderful”, by inclusion

on their radiophonic portholes to a better way of life. Sometimes. And this, too, is The Proper Indie; four infinitely lovable songs of melodic charm, Smithsian jingles, the odd Celtic violin and some technological zippery in the stylee we’ve come to know as the [a]Super Furry Animals[/a]’ inter-pollination-eclectro-rummage. No clue what they’re on about here with

musings on[I] “side-to-side anemones, back-to back-phenomenons” [/I](from ‘Anemones’) or on ‘Sark’ where they advise [I]”more reckless the silence

grows”[/I] which is two minutes long and possessed of Welsh choir stirrings of a hair-permingly religious ‘bent’. Unparalleled wobble-pop supremacy, as Wales continues its reign as, you know, the new Wales.
