Gwenno - Gwyl Y Corau Meibion 2007

Gwenno - Le Kov Artist Gwenno
Title Le Kov
Label Heavenly
Gwenno returns following 2014’s critically acclaimed Welsh language record ‘Y Dydd Olaf’. Gwenno will release ‘Le Kov’ in the spring of 2018, and like her debut it’s a bold statement on the importance of protecting minority languages & has come about with long term collaborator Rhys Edwards.

Where her debut had nine songs in Welsh, the last track ‘Amser’ was in Cornish, and this is where Gwenno continues her trailblazing mission, picking up exactly where ‘Y Dydd Olaf’ left off. Written entirely in Cornish, ‘Le Kov’ translates as “the place of memory”.

Le Kov is exploration of the individual and collective subconscious, the myths and drolls of Cornwall, and the survival of Britain’s lesser known Brythonic language. As one of the language’s few fluent speakers, Gwenno felt a duty to make her second album entirely in Cornish: to create a document of a living language, explore her identity and the endless creative possibilities of a tongue that has a very small surviving artistic output, despite having been around for at least 15 centuries.

Label Heavenly


In a period of governmental and cultural revolution, former Pipettes front-woman, GWENNO, releases a political concept album inspired by an obscure 1970s Welsh language sci-fi novel, subtly disguised as a blissful kraut-pop record.

Taking its cue, and title, from Owain Owain’s 1976 novel about a dystopian future where the robots have taken over and are busily turning the human race into clones through the use of medication, Y DYDD OLAF blends big themes (including patriarchal society, government-funded media propaganda, cultural control, technology, isolation and the importance of, and threat to minority languages), great tunes, and a real sense of revolution to produce a powerful, politically-charged concept album.

Y DYDD OLAF is a political, feminist, brilliantly executed record; and although this particular revolution might not be televised, it certainly will have a great soundtrack.

LP = Limited edition vinyl + MP3 of the album + ‘Y Dydd Ychwanegol’ (‘The Extra Day’), a bonus disc of remixes, B sides and rarities.
