New Sounds from North Wales

I'm currently listening to Brigyn's Brigyn 3 - a bunch of kids from North Wales who've released quite a lot in Welsh and are starting to sing in English too. They're pretty good: lots of folk, tinges of decent jazz, judicious use of electronics and a pretty clear line from Scott Walker and Tindersticks too. They're not experimental like SFA, Gorky's or Ectogram, but excellent nonetheless - think a Welsh Kings of Convenience. Not sure why they're called 'Twig' though…

Here's a couple of fairly straightforward acoustic bits.
