Product Description

Product Description

'We Went Riding' is the brilliant new album from Gorky's Zygotic Mynci co-founder Richard James; his second since the cult band went their separate ways. Richard's first, 'The Seven Sleeper's Den', was a slow burning collection of love songs and instrumentals sung in English and occasionally Welsh. Somebody said it sounded like the Velvet Underground with the ratio of New Yorkers to Welsh people reversed, and they weren't far wrong. This follow-up is an entirely different breed, a multi-layered extravaganza that sees Richard letting loose his inner pop auteur. ("I wanted to be ambitious in the production of this album," he says). Together with long time producer / collaborator / schoolfriend Iwan Morgan (aka Recall), We Went Riding enlists some of Cardiff's finest musicians to help realise Richard's vision, including Gorky's bandmate Euros Childs and singer-songwriter Cate Le Bon, who adds her bewitching vocals to the album's beautiful closing track 'From Morning Sunshine'. Recorded in a house in Pontcanna, Cardiff, overdubbed in various locations around Wales and polished off in Carmarthen, the album reveals the many faces of Richard James, most of which will come as a surprise to those who knew him as the quiet member of Gorky's, the architect of the band's softer side. At times raucous, psychedelic and plugged in, at others gentle, folky and countrified, 'We Went Riding' is a fully realised mini-masterwork. Reviews have now been confirmed in the following publications: Uncut, Q, Mojo, Clash, Shindig & Rock'n'Reel.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely fabulous 27 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
Discovered this album unintentionally while trying to find out when Euros Childs was bringing out new material. The tracks are quite mellow and the album is good for when you want to lock yourself away from the world. Particular favourite tracks are 'when the letter arrives' and 'we went riding'. Yes, it might sound as if it's been recorded in someone's lounge but it's not a bad thing. Buy and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey hey hey 8 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album without knowing what to expect, on the basis of liking the few Gorky's albums I own as well as hearing a Richard James session on 6music. I have to say I'm VERY pleasantly surprised.

Particularly pleasing are the changes of pace from one track to the next. Melodic acoustic songs of mesmerising beauty are interspersed with heavier, bluesier numbers to really get the toes tapping. No disappointments here, and plenty of real high points.

This is proper music, very impressive indeed. I can't recommend it highly enough - try it, you'll like it. A lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars YOU'LL DIG IT 28 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album on the strength of a strong review in a trusted music magazine and I was not disappointed. It's tuneful and unpretentious.

It's nice to hear an artist melding influences into something they can call their own. It will probably make it into the Best of The Year lists for many critics...

Brilliant from the first listen, by the 3rd listen I was entirely swept up in its bounding, rippling musicality. A genuine musical treat from start to finish.
