I'd hear a lot about Neon Neon's gig in Cardiff a few weeks ago and eventually got hold of this record today. In a week when the world is going nuts for Daft Punk's new album (which seems pretty great by the way) I am finding this to be as surprising, creative and exciting as anything I've listened to in a fair while.. I love the left-of-centre themes and sonic curveballs which can only be delivered like this in the hands of great artists and musicians.. really brilliant.
I'm often disappointed by side collaborations, but there has been some amazing work created by members of SFA over the last year. Check out Cian Ciarán 'Outside In' and personally I'm in love with Gulp (Guto Pryce of SFA and Lindsey Leven) who have just recorded an album after their debut single 'Game Love' which I hope will see the light of day very soon.
