Gwilym – Cwîn.

Hi. 🙂

So the last song from the band Gwilym today, or actually, as far as I know, the first they’ve ever released. As all two songs I’ve showed you before, I really like it, it’s cool. 🙂

Gwilym – Llechan Lân (Clean Slate).

Hi. 🙂

So another song from Gwilym today, the second of those three I know, the last of them will be tomorrow. I really like it. As for the title, I’m not sure whether I translated it well, I know that lân is clean, or pure, or fair, however was not sure what llechan means, but it looks like it’s slate in English.

Gwilym – Catalunya.

Hi! 🙂

I suppose most of my readers if not all already know about my music crushes and that my currently most dominant one is on Gwilym Bowen Rhys. It’s another Gwilym today though. Gwilym, being one of traditional and quite classic Welsh names and surnames seems to be quite popular there, but I was quite surprised that this Gwilym is actually a band – a very fresh and young, band and already pretty successful on their local scene – which, funnily enough, consists of, as far as I can remember, four guys, but none of them is called Gwilym. 😀 I was quite curious why they chose such a name for their band, since Gwilym is also one of my favourite Welsh male names, but I still don’t know.

Anyway, so far I know their three songs, I suppose it’s all they’ve done so far, and I like all of them, they’re pretty catchy, and cool, in some cases I would say catchiness isn’t that much of an advantage, but in their cases it certainly is. This is their newest song that has gained a lot of attention in Welsh language media and all around the Welsh language music scene, or so it looks for me as an outsider. Here it is:

Gwibdaith Hen Frân – Coffi Du (Black Coffee).

Hi guys! 🙂

Dw i’n hoffi coffi! That’s I like coffee in Welsh, doesn’t it sound cool? 😀

Any other coffee addicts here? This is a song for you. 😀 I love it, because it describes my relationship with coffee so well! OK, I don’t think I’m an addict, I can manage a day without coffee or more in necessary, it can just be damn hard when you have always very low blood pressure, but when I really want to feel the effects of coffee, I need to drink a few because I’ve never was particularly sensitive to caffeine. My Mum just laughed when I read the lyrics to her, she’s been drinking coffee everyday since she’s grown up and if by some accident she sometimes don’t do it on time, so right after she wakes up, she quickly gets an awful headache. But at least she manages on one coffee a day.

So yeah, today’s song is for the love of coffee, it’s just fabulous. And, as for the band, Gwibdaith Hen Frân are a trip folk band from north Wales, and I must say I like their quirkiness.

The lyrics are in the video, both Welsh and English. Enjoy. 🙂

Adwaith – “Fel I Fod”.

Hi. 🙂

Today I wanted to show you guys a very nice, young Welsh girlsband, from Carmarthenshire, more exactly from Caerfyrddin. They make post punk experimental music. I’ve heard them for the first time just a few days ago and I like them more and more.

Adwaith means reaction in Welsh, as the girls say their band name was apparently a pure coincidence and they were very “lazy” coming up with it. They are Hollie Singer – who is a vocalist – Gwenllian Anthony – on bass – and Heledd Owen – on drums.

Geraint Jarman – Reggae Reggae.

Hi guys! 🙂

I know, I planned to show you all my favourite Geraint Jarman songs until the end of this week, but because of some other things that I felt like needed to be shared with you first, it has belated a bit again. Today I have for you another song from his newest album “Dwyn Yr Hogyn Nol” (Bring The Boy Back), called “Reggae Reggae”. One of my favourite reggae pieces in reggae music in general, close after all the Polish reggae stuff I like.
