TRWBADOR

2nd Album Several Wolves released 11th August 2014 on Owlet Music

Trwbador are Angharad and Owain, an electro - folk - rave duo from West Wales.  Half Welsh / half Dutch, their eponymous debut album was shortlisted for the Welsh Music Prize and they have earned airplay on BBC Radio 1, 6Music and Radio Wales.

The Manic Street Preachers cited Trwbador as the key influence behind one of the songs on their most recent album (Builder of Routines on Futurology).

Their second album, the recently released ‘Several Wolves’, was Album of the Day on BBC 6Music and has received glowing reviews from such authoritative sources as Mixmag, The Quietus and ‘QMagazine.

Trwbador know how to construct a full-on listening experience.
The Quietus

It’s grand, deep and melancholic, and it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to see them as A Welsh Little Dragon or SBTRKT.” 8/10
Mixmag

A stunning record.” ****
Q Magazine

An absolute beauty of an album.” 8/10
Artrocker



Their music is unfettered in its adventurousness, blurring influences from a disparate palette of Broadcast, Pentangle, Cornelius and Diplo. It’s wonderful, experimental pop music that, like the best pop music, combines immediacy with convention-warping innovation and technological curiosity.
Apart from a couple of notable collaborations (with the legendary Cornershop and rising UK hip hop star Essa), the band are resolutely DIY, releasing all of their records on their own label, Owlet Music.

They share all songwriting and producing duties equally and have been catching the attention of journalists, DJs and musos alike since 2010.

DAN AMOR

http://danamor.bandcamp.com/track/dusk-bird-2

Dan Amor grew up and lives in deepest Snowdonia. His understated music is a blend of folk, Americana and 60’s pop.  His songs have received airplay on BBC Radio 1, 2, 3 and 6Music. Support slots have included Aqualung, The Proclaimers and Billy Bragg. A song he penned for former band Gabrielle 25 (named after a typewriter), ‘Every Little Thing I Say Gets You Down’, was played by John Peel.

Dan enjoyed a brief stint as bassist for Infinity Chimps – John Lawrence’s band (founder member of Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci), before setting up independent label Recordiau Cae Gwyn in 2008.

Current album, the Welsh and English language ‘Rainhill Trials’, is receiving regular airplay on BBC 6Music, Radio 3, Radio Wales and Radio Cymru. His mum, Yvonne, who produces all artwork for the label, painted album covers for The Kinks and Long John Baldry during the 70’s.

Atmospheric Welsh language contemporary folk.”
Lothar Kopari, BBC Radio 3

There’s a frailty to his work, with Dan Amor recalling Syd Barrett’s fractured solo years or even the incessant introspection which John Lennon found in the ashram.
Clash Magazine

Bardic Americana. ‘Celticana’, anyone?

pretty cool… loads of interesting sounding musicians.
Cerys Matthews, 6Music

a set of evenings dedicated to genuinely brilliant  music.
Ian Hughes, Daily Post

Crackling Vinyl began in November 2011 as an excuse for music enthusiasts, Adam Walton, Ben ‘Soundhog’ Hayes and Elin Bach to play their favourite records in their favourite music venue (Telford’s Warehouse, Chester) far away from the weekend madness of endless requests for the kind of R&B that wasn’t pressed on Chess Records.

Crackling Vinyl evolved to encompass live music. They would bring unique and acclaimed artists to Chester for the first time, at a very affordable price: a high quality watermark in a city keen to experience the best, upcoming touring artists.

Crackling Vinyl have DJ’d and compered the Walled Garden stage at Green Man Festival for the last 3 years.

Previous live guests at Crackling Vinyl have included: Sweet Baboo, Gallops, Paper Aeroplanes, Katell Keineg, Alun Tan Lan, Gulp, Zervas & Pepper, Euros Childs, Cate Le Bon, Laura J. Martin, Y Niwl, Colorama, Richard James, H. Hawkline, Mowbird, Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog, Toy Horses, T.G. Elias, Georgia Ruth, Chris T-T, Sex Hands, Irma Vep, She Makes War, Sam Airey, Houdini Dax, The Gentle Good, Trwbador, Golden Fable, The Wellgreen, Pulco, Harry Keyworth, Greta Isaac, Atlas Twins, Jessica Ball, Sophie Ballamy, Bright Young People – a fascinating selection of artists who have graced Radio 1, 6Music, Radio 2 and Radio Wales.

FORTHCOMING ATTRACTIONS:
Tue 23rd September        Trwbador / Dan Amor
Tue 7th October        Silent Sleep / Vera Van Heeringen

‘Lord of the Manor’ by The Everly BrothersIt’s my dad’s 70th birthday tomorrow. It was his records that got me bit. Particularly his early Ray Charles, Buddy Holly & Everly Brothers 7”s. 

Happy birthday dad.

I didn’t hear this one courtesy of you, but what a strange and wonderful record. If you had this one, I would definitely have nicked it.

‘Sausalito (Is The Place To Go)’ by Ohio ExpressThis is what Graham Gouldman could do in his sleep. Shame it’s not the greatest quality. It’s definitely one of the greatest bubblegum songs.
