This year has seen the band DATBLYGU celebrating 30 years since their formation and it gives ankstmusik records the greatest pride and pleasure to announce that they band have made a foray into the studio to record a brand new E.P. which will be released on seven inch vinyl.

This four track E.P. is a further indicator of their ongoing renaissance and continued musical relevance. Four tracks that recall the classic Datblygu sound and line up of Pat and David. The music, once again kicks like a mule, and the record makes it clear that the voice and words we’ve missed hearing for such a long time is finally back.

This limited edition release will be on sale at the premiere of Owain Llyr’s upcoming film about the band – PROJECT DATBLYGU http://mwldan.ticketsolve.com/shows/873486242/events

Datblygu - Erbyn Hyn Artist Datblygu
Title Erbyn Hyn [#DyddMiwsigCymru]
Label Ankst
David and Patricia decided in early 2014 to reconvene and travel down to the Cardiff studios of legendary contemporaries Llwybr Llaethog (John Griffiths and Kevs Ford) to set up a one day recording session that would bring into existence the songs that would constitute ‘ERBYN HYN’( ‘BY NOW’)
Once again Datblygu offer a collection of unique songs that startle and unsettle as much as ever. The voice is strong and the simple music is free, playful and spiky providing a natural fit for the words that bite deep in songs such as ‘Dim Achos’, ‘Cerdd(o’r)iaith’ and ‘Can Werin’. The thematic concerns of these new songs will be familiar to long term followers of the poetry of David R.Edwards as love, sex, agriculture, education, incarceration, freedom and sanity reappear in David’s most recent work. The fate of alternative, confrontational and challenging music from Wales is in safe hands once again...

Datblygu - Porwr Trallod Artist Datblygu
Title Porwr Trallod [WMP16] [#DyddMiwsigCymru]
Label Ankstmusic
December 2015 sees the release, on vinyl, of the first full-length album in twenty two years by the seminal Welsh band, Datblygu. Datblygu have been at the vanguard of Welsh experimental culture since their inception in 1982, and have forever bent Welsh culture out of shape with their startling Welsh language trilogy – Wyau(1988), Pyst(1990) and Libertino(1993). With their latest album Porwr Trallod, (Tribulation Browser) they manage to find the fine balance between the rawness and directness of their early releases with a new and progressive stripped down sound.

Over the course of its fourteen tracks, Porwr Trallod sees the male/female essence of a newly energised and legendary musical duo (Pat Morgan, David R Edwards) delve deep into the psyche of Broken Britain with lyrics and sounds ranging from the angry to the serene, via the beautiful. Topically diverse, the album sees a more introspective lilt to the lyrics but in turning their gaze inwards, the band have managed to capture the unease and tension that is currently prevalent.


Vinyl LP comes with a free CD of the album.

Death Of Money - Ghost Pains Artist The Death Of Money
Title Ghost Pains
Label SuperFi
"Ghost Pains" is the third full-length by this long-running Welsh trio, this time with a slightly shortened version of their moniker. As before they blend an appreciation for modern, heavy music together with an experimental edge to create a swirling, hypnotic maelstrom of repetitive, naturally grooving stoner-rock, kind of like Neurosis meets My Bloody Valentine meets Sonic Youth meets Can.

Dingley, Alex - Beat The Babble Artist Alex Dingley
Title Beat The Babble
Label Birth
’’The first time I met Alex Dingley, he was standing in a dark rainy alleyway in the UK. I was halfway intimidated, him smoking a cigarette as he grinned wide… Two front teeth missing and he extended his hand... Mischievously laughing. Immediately I felt his kind and genial warm soul. I knew he was a longtime friend of Cate Le Bon, so I knew he was good people. When asked to ’co-produce’ his album with Cate I was so very interested to hear his life in music. Anyone with two front teeth knocked out must have a plethora of wild stories (and...he does). I couldn’t have been more curious. He comes from Wales, where he shares his life with his lovely wife Mared, who in 2010 collapsed and was diagnosed with a grade-three brain tumor. She was given 18 months to live, but is still here six years later. Touch wood everyday. She is a colorful, inspired artist, and uses her art to express this life reset. Alex has story, he has more than story, and these life-changing events have inspired a need to bleed the pen... This time they are both sharing this experience through the eternal beauty of love, art, and song. Bags were packed and Alex, Mared, Cate, myself and trusted (sonic master) recorder Samur Khouja all communed up in the panoramic house studio overlooking the ocean in Northern California. Far from Wales, but near a release, an unfettered Pacific expressional adventure. ’’When I heard the lyrics and vocal delivery I had to remind myself this is not some songwriting fiction... This is a man whose life and shared love-life was reset to zero with life’s quicksilver contretemps. This is a melodic book on tape, a journal put to song, a soundtrack to film starring real people, real script. ’’I think Cate’s & my only focus was to help the musical arrangements by servicing them sharp and simply, so Alex’s songs and voice could effect the listener as it effected him and us. ’’I know people like easy-to-digest musical comparisons. The recordings remind me a little bit of early Stiff Records, which I love. So, there you go...’’ - Tim Presley (White Fence), 2016

Dingley, Alex - Built In The Ruins Of A Monday Morning Artist Alex Dingley
Title Built On the Ruins Of A Monday Morning
Label Alex Dingley Records
Album of the year 2010.  After 2007s ’I lost my honey....’, this follow up had a lot to live up to..  Taking a producer on board (rather than DIYing it like before) there was slim chance that Built in the Ruins could have lost all the charm that made Dingley’s solo debut so appealing in the first place.  Thanks to the experience of producer Charlie Fancis (The Crocketts, Robyn Hitchcock, VEGClub) the result is slick where it needs to be and subtle in the right places meaning Dingley’s natural talent for melody and lyric is not over powered by unnecessary faff.

Dingley, Alex - Cats Eyes 7 Artist Alex Dingley
Title Cats Eyes
Label Too Pure
Alex Dingley is one of our most recommended (and played on the stereo) artists here in Spillers.  We’re thrilled he has the pleasure of rounding off a productive & healthy year for the Too Pure Singles Club with this two track single. 
A. Cats Eyes  B. Between the Devil & The Deep Blue Sea.

LIMITED to 500 copies / Hand numbered

Here’s a lovely press release written by Too Pure:

Every now and again, you stumble across an artist that just grabs your attention, makes you want to listen again and again and to delve deeply into the bands history, the twists and turns they have taken to get to your record player. Some, it could be said have an easy ride, everything just seems to fall into place. Others however, as in the case of ALEX DINGLEY have to scale mountainous odds just to record the music they so lovingly create.

Hailing from South Wales ALEX DINGLEY makes music firmly rooted in honesty. Never pretending to be anything other than them selves. Firm believers in the DIY ethic ALEX DINGLEY works in the belief that musical technique should not compromise melody, and that the song is the most important thing. Allowing the parts of the songs to naturally gravitate to one another and then cementing this connection with the lyrics. ALEX DINGLEY self released the 8 track recorded album ‘I Lost My Honey In The Grass’ in 2007 and followed this up in 2010 with ‘Built In The Ruins Of A Monday Morning’, however, this release was unfortunately lost in the melee of personal tragedies and difficulties affecting the band. But in spite of this, they’ve come through it and we at Too Pure have the privilege to be releasing ‘Cats Eyes’.

‘Cats Eyes’ is a euphoric gem of a track, incorporating, rich instrumentation, augmented by boy/girl sing along vocals, electronics and a free spirited folk stomp that is difficult to resist. Bringing to mind drink soaked nights in a pub when flat caps were en vogue and the cost of a pint didn’t require a bank balance that would float the Eurozone. ‘Between The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea’ is another rampant track but more in tune with proponents of early nineties Lo-Fi Americana, feel good all the way and complete with retro synths and hand claps.

I bet every review of this album starts by mentioning the band name and then makes some kind of link between that and the music. We’ll not do that. Instead we’ll say it’s an album full of texture, tunes and yeah, ok, some repetition - but to good effect. On the Cardiff label My Kung Fu.
