Super furry January mix

with 3 comments

Back in October, I was planning to do a little entry about the Super Furry Animals being ace and under-appreciated. Literally the next day, I read this piece by Alan McGee on the Guardian web site. So I didn’t bother doing one.

But, if you’re anything like me, in the days following a good concert, you’ll listen to that particular band quite a lot. I’ve been listening to SFA all the time. Then I got an email from a good friend who said she’d never really got into them. For me, as a male human, this kind of statement is some sort of gauntlet landing at my feet. So I decided to put together a mix of Super Furry Animals songs for her: one song off each album, not particularly my favourite of each album, but songs that work together as a mix and cover all aspects of SFA’s music.

And I present it here for you, too. As with previous mixes, it’ll be online for one week only. If you like the songs, you should really do yourself a favour and buy all of their albums: your life will be richer for doing so.

Zoom! (Love Kraft, 2005) / Run-Away (Hey Venus!, 2007) / She’s Got Spies (Radiator, 1997) / Ice Hockey Hair (single, 1998) / Arnofio/Glô in the Dark (Out Spaced, 1998) / Gathering Moss (Fuzzy Logic, 1996) / Ymaelodi A R Ymylon (Mwng, 2000) / Receptacle for the Respectable (Rings Around The World, 2001) / Fire In My Heart (Guerilla, 1999) / Slow Life (Phantom Power, 2003)
