Jenkins, Karl - Cantata Memoria (For The Children) Artist Karl Jenkins
Title Cantata Memoria (For The Children)
Label Deutsche Grammofon
‘Cantata Memoria’ commemorates through new music the Aberfan tragedy of 21 October 1966, when 116 children and 28 adults tragically lost their lives as a coal tip enveloped Plant Glas school, together with some houses, in Aberfan, South Wales. This large-scale choral work – in English, Welsh and Latin  – has been commissioned by S4C to mark the 50th anniversary of what has become known to subsequent generations – both in the UK and around the world – as the Aberfan Disaster.
Amongst modern choral circles, Karl Jenkins is a composer and a brand. A brand that stands for an epic, moving sound that connects with people from all different age groups and backgrounds. In the first large-scale works since the best-selling “The Armed Man – A mass for Peace”, this special and profoundly emotional new work features no one less than the celebrated welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel, as well as leading Welsh harpist Catrin Finch,  and a host of children and adult voices.Though written to commemorate a specific and profoundly sad event, the emotions and themes housed within this special music can resonate beyond: Loss, then the transition from darkness into light are truly universal occurrences.

Joanna Gruesome - Pretty Fucking Sick (Of It All) [7] Artist Joanna Gruesoe
Title Pretty Fucking Sick (Of It All) [Ltd. 7
Label Fortuna Pop!
Joanna Gruesome release their first material since the departure of vocalist Alanna McArdle on this limited edition coloured vinyl 7” on the Fortuna POP! Jukebox 45s singles club.

Recorded by producer Rory Atwell on a boat in London, a statement from the band on Pretty Fucking Sick (Of It All) reads, “This song is about being pursued by intelligence operatives and is partly set in the Welsh village of Llangrannog. It is influenced by our recent U.S tour, during which the CIA took a special interest in the group’s movements.” On Occult Bookshop the band says, “This is an origin story, detailing the first meeting of the group. It is also about using astrological means to strengthen, receive and administer crushes. Another reading suggests that the song is about attempting to destroy binary conceptions of gender through ritual hexing.”

Joanna Gruesome - Weird Sister Artist Joanna Gruesome
Title Weird Sister (Bo2013 Graf)
Label Fortuna Pop!

Thrilling Cardiff-based noisepop five-piece Joanna Gruesome will be releasing their terrific debut album Weird Sister via Fortuna POP!. Brimming with irresistible pop melodies and spiked with dissonant fuzzy jangle, their songs are shot through with loud discordant feedback and super-fast, hardcore punk drumbeats. This album sees their first foray away from recording in a living room to a proper studio under the guidance of producer MJ of the much lauded Hookworms.

Kicking it against sexism and homophobia, nothing is off-limits, drawing inspiration from DIY scenes such as Riot Grrrl/noisepop/C86 /K-Records as well as post hardcore like Drive Like Jehu/Converge and the art rock of The Velvet Underground and My Bloody Valentine, Joanna Gruesome offer a staggeringly diverse album, unexpectedly quiet and surprisingly loud.

Jones, Meilyr - 2013 Artist Meilyr Jones
Title 2013 [WMP16 - WINNER!] [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Graf, Ade & Ashli]
Label Moshi Moshi
WELSH MUSIC PRIZE WINNER 2016!


Moshi Moshi records are thrilled to announce the release of 2013, the debut album of MEILYR JONES.
“I conceived of the record as a compilation of myself, over the period of a year,” says Meilyr Jones. “As an anthology, a collection of my songs and of what happened to me in that year.” The year in question was 2013, a curious time in Jones’s life, when the weeks were scored by loss and pleasure and revelation, and when he made a short but transformative trip to Rome, drawn by a fascination with sculpture and Byron and Berlioz, and by a desire “to see something new and different.”

Jones, Meilyr - How To Recognise A Work Of Art Artist Meilyr Jones
Title How To Recognise A Work Of Art
Label Moshi Moshi
After announcing his forthcoming first solo album, ‘2013’, on Moshi Moshi records, Cate Le Bon collaborator and Royal Academy Of Music drop-out Meilyr Jones releases ‘How To Recognise A Work Of Art’ on 7”.


Recorded completely live with a full band this is a song about authenticity and forgery, of which Meilyr says: “I wrote the song about the preposterous world of art collectors, the panic of what is popular, what will succeed, telling people what to like, what to eat, and the recycling of pop culture. I also wanted to make something light and fun, and full of humour.”

‘How To Recognise A Work Of Art’ is about the obsession in our time with authenticity and the cult of the artist.

Jones, Meilyr (Race Horses) - Refugees / Birds Artist Meilyr Jones (Race Horses)
Title Refugees / Birds
Label Moshi Moshi
Debut solo single from the former Race Horses frontman!

’Refugees’ is an exploration of the relationship between industry and nature. Inspired in part by a shift in Meilyr Jones’ relationship with his homeland, as well as by ’Spirit Of 45’, Ken Loach’s tribute to the British welfare state. This is followed by ’Birds’, an orchestral delight played by a large group of baroque musicians that demonstrates the full scale of Meilyr’s compositional talent. "I wrote ’Birds’ to follow ’Refugees’ as one piece," says Meilyr. "The idea is that you go from indoors, with piano and voice, to outdoors and to nature with ’Birds’." On stage is where Meilyr’s songs really comes to life, revealing mesmerising exuberance and showmanship. His wit and humour is tempered by jubilant pop melody and rock and roll muscularity.
