On How I Long To Feel That Summer in My Heart, Gorky's has made an album that feels as light as air, yet continues to grow with repeated listening. Initially, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci seemed like a backwoods acid test gone awry. Early albums were filled with dense psychedelic pop songs, whose surreal feel was aided by the band occasionally singing in its native Welsh, bizarre illustrations and photos depicting the band as forest-bound wizards and gnomes. Over its last few releases, however, Gorky's has refined its music and image, leaving behind the gimmicks and costumes for a subtler sound that is as hypnotic as it is catchy. Most intriguing is the band's ability to create songs that are both expansive and intimate, that flow with an improvisational feel without ever losing control. While the usual pop influences can be found within their music (Beach Boys, Beatles) it is the unexpected touches that give the songs heft. Taking its cues from Fairport Convention's unconventional folk sound, Van Morrison's mysticism and strangely enough, church hymnals, Gorky's songs are permeated with a darkness and longing that makes the music compelling. How I Long To Feel That Summer in My Heart is what should happen to psychedelic music once the light show gets boring. --Adam Silverman

Gorky's are back with another bunch of fresh tunes. The title and cover of the CD say it all : the songs are sweet, the melodies simple and beautiful. Beware: the opening track ("Where Does Yer Go Now?") is a pure marvel! I am hooked! "Her Hair hangs Long" starts very quietly and builds into a powerful rock riff. You won't be surprised if you already own some of their past work (although some songs have unexpected structures and explore new moods and sounds). If you don't know them, it may be worth to lend an ear to this Welsh band. But be careful... you might wake up one day and realize that you've bought all of Gorky's albums and singles in two weeks... that's what happened to me one year ago... Who would regret it?

At first, I was indifferent, in no way was this poppy folksy extravaganza a bad buy, rather it seemed to be nothing a hardened 'alternative indie pop' fan hadn't heard before. How wrong was I. First the irresistable jaunt of Can Megan brought me to my senses (brass is always a good bet, particularly where you least expect it) then came the haunting Dead-aid. Siutably converted, there isn't a track on this album that i wouldn't urge you to listen to with the utmost enthusiasm that we eccentrics are so good at. Stood on Gold's effortless melody will prepare for my personal favourite Christina. Don't get me wrong, the chances of seeing Childs and co. on CDUK are minimal, but with and open mind and the right amount of taste, there's no reason why those music fans habitually in the mainstream shouldn't enjoy it too.

From the dreamy opening of "Where does yer go now," we know exactly why the latest album from Gorki's Zygotic Mynci was titled so. "How I Long To Feel That Summer In My Heart," is the latest in a long line of well written melodic masterpieces from the welsh maestros. Through Euros Childs words the heartbroken and love lost among us can feel the pain and wallow in the beauty of the musical arrangements. More an album of a collection of great songs, than having two or three stand outs amongst mediocrity. How I Long To Feel That Summer In My Heart may not change your life, like great albums tend to do, but the optimism of the closing two tracks make you feel life with Gorki's Zygotic Mynci ain't so bad.

The more prickly experiments have been left behind, as they expand upon the pastoral acoustic vibe from their Blue Trees EP. The album arrives at the perfect time to evoke the melancholy one feels when summer is all-too-soon over. Rather than bucolic splendor of sunshine and butterflies, this quiet, folksy music is definitively autumnal. There is a strong c...fastnbulbous!

After the breakdown on 1998 ‘Gorky 5’ where the Welsh band Gorkys Zygotic Mynci been dropped by the major label Mercury Records, immediately an independent label Mantra Records have signed them in. In 1999 they’ve released ‘Spanish Dance Troupe’ and 2000 ‘The Blue Trees’ mini album. Both releases are in NME and Mojo magazine Top 50 album of the year chart.

This year, they made returned with a beautiful comfortable album, also the longest album title they’ve ever made ‘How I Long To Feel That Summer In My Heart’.

‘How I Long...’ is the most quiet album in their history, it sound like a Low album with some Welsh music in it. All the tracks is soft and beautifully comfortable with some heartbreaking tunes.

Their first single ‘Stood On Gold’ is a beautiful love song and the heartbreakingly ‘Dead-Aid’, ‘Christina’ and ‘How I Long’ can brings you into another world full of heartbroken. Norman Blake form Teenage Fanclub contributed backing vocals in ‘Can Megan’ written with Megan Child itself.

After so many years of the fall and rise of Gorkys Zygotic Mynci, they can still produced lots of great records to the world. The power inside them will never die.
