Song of the Day - Sept 19, 2005

Gruff Rhys, of Super Furry Animals fame, released a solo album earlier this year, Yr Atal Genhrflaeth. I know you probably are wondering what the title of the album means. It is Welsh for "the stuttering generation." In fact, the whole album is in Welsh. One of my favorite tracks is "Epynt." The track vaguely reminds me of the underground classic "Eisbar" by Grauzone. Does anybody remember that song? It probably has something to do with the fact that both songs were sung in foreign languages and featured repetitive lyrics and a simple but catchy melody. I love the organ work on "Epynt." I did a little research and according to Gruff, "Epynt is a mountain in Mid Wales. It’s also about the battle between the Euro (the E in Epynt) and the pound (pynt in Welsh). The conclusion is that it’s better to get rid of money altogether." Click here to listen.
