"Warm, folky tunes like 'Ymaelodi Ar Ymylon' usher the listener through a plush summer"

More Super Furry Animals More Super Furry Animals

Coinciding with a smattering of live dates after half a decade in hibernation, Super Furry Animals reissue their 2000 Welsh language record, Mwng, which passes like a year in their home country.

With warm, folky tunes like Ymaelodi Ar Ymylon ushering the listener through a plush summer into cold, pensive Sarn Helen and the mournful (in English) This Is (Not) The Song That Will Save The Language. Bizarre Welsh bonus tracks from early recordings, a Peel Session and a brilliant live recording featuring Gruff Rhys’ usual vague preambles are included for the fans.
