Album Review – GWENNO – Y Dydd Olaf

By |November 30th, 2014|0 Comments

gwenno_y_dydd_olafI love Gwenno… It’s an affair that’s been ongoing for a few years now and Y Dydd Olaf only cements the relationship…
Gwenno could have so easily sold her soul to the soulless corporate rock ‘n’ roll, that neither rocks or rolls, but instead she has produced this accomplished piece of work.
Y Dydd Olaf is smooth enough to be mainstream material and quirky enough to nestle in your record collection (between Gwacamoli and H.Hawkline in my house!).

gwennoYou sometimes get stuff and look at it with discoloured trepidation… I read the news feeds and hear that Gwenno, the shining siren from a trio of sirens called The Pipettes as been on tour in Australia with… Elton John…

So before I clicked ‘play’ I had (as usual) already made my dismissive mind up and was ready to chuck this on the pile of wigs, tiaras, platform shoes and glitter I have piling up in the corner next to the grand piano… Had I not been so quick to jump the starting gun, I’d have been curious enough to enquire why it is on the Peski label… An outfit proud to be slightly different, like people who wear big coats on a hot summers day.. They’re ok, just slightly different…
