"When your dinner isn't ready, I'm your uninvited guest."

After a somewhat slow start to the year in terms of good new music, things are really trickling through now. I was delighted this week to learn that there's a new Gruff Rhys album due in June. It's his fifth solo record and he's really gone to town on it. It features the 72-piece BBC National Orchestra Of Wales with each song scored by Swansea composer Stephen McNeff. Lead single Frontier Man still sounds like Gruff Rhys though, albeit a Gruff Rhys singing a classic orchestrated country tune. Lyrically he's on top form too.

I love Gruff. He should be given the title of Prince of Wales. No one ought to mind the Severn Crossing being renamed then...

  1. Nice one, Robster. Thanks for the heads up. You might be right about the bridge. Video begins and ends down the road from you in Victoria Park, Cardiff. Don't think he's in Patagonia in the colour sections though, even if he is dressed as a gaucho.

  2. Didn't knew that a new record by the great Welsh musician will be released soon. Until then I will listen to this song for some times. Thank you Robster
