Song of the day – 123: Pulco

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

I’m a sucker for a Welsh accent.

This is beautiful gentle funny and smart pastoral music, made by a fellow who’s played with Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci and Sebadoh, apparently. The entire album is fetching and beguiling and several other words that end in ‘ing’, and the harmonies sometimes remind me of Teenage Fanclub because they are so gentle and filled with wonder, and occasionally, vaguely, hallucinogenic. (Not particularly like the Fannies then. Hem.) You can listen to a bit of some of it, and purchase it over here. The song I would like to recommend you if you’re feeling a bit trippy is ‘Brian Museum’ (which is a little like Patrik Fitzgerald performing ‘Animal Mentality’), or if you’re feeling a bit hippy, ‘Picker Hymn’, or if you’re feeling all doolally and lonesome, ‘Drinking Song For Days Long Gone’.

However, you can’t listen to any of those songs in their entirety there, so mosey on over to the MySpace and take a listen to ‘Wearing Down Well’, with its trace of a Jew’s Harp. Quite wonderful.

    Jesus, what the fuck is this?!

    I want to critique this band but I think I’m just gonna mention Pitchfork here, and ugly bearded and generally hirsute music nerds (oh hi there irony), oh and hipsters too. That should be sufficient enough to express my disdain for music all the “cool” people like! (quotations to express my sarcasm)

    I’m smart =)
