1 - GENTLE GOOD, THE - RUINS/ADFEILION - (CD) 
BUBBLEWRAP


the return of acclaimed Cardiff singer-songwriter and folk musician Gareth Bonello, also known as The Gentle Good. A collaborator of a great many beloved artists, including Cate Le Bon, Richard James (Gorky's Zygotic Mynci) and Welsh Music Prize winner Georgia Ruth, Bonellos fourth album Ruins/Adfeilion is one thats title alone serves best to reflect the disparate themes within. Although not represented by a single concept, the songs have common themes of history, identity and social commentary. The title refers to a realisation that there is no true freedom to make the world as we would choose, but instead have to live amongst the ruins of previous generations. Some of these ruins are beautiful links to our past, providing a sense of place and cultural identity for instance, whilst others are dangerous obstacles that hinder our progress. As the follow-up to 2013s Y Bardd Anfarwol (The Immortal Bard) - an ambitious intercontinental project during which Bonello travelled to Chengdu, China, to create a project combining both Welsh and Chinese traditions - Ruins/Adfeilion looks much closer to home, but with no lesser global outlook. Gwen Lliwr Lili (Gwen colour of the Lilly) is a fitting album opener - being a traditional Welsh folk song from the Maria Jane Williams Collection, Ancient National Airs of Gwent and Morgannwg (1844) - and an outward statement on the influence that the continuing influence of Welsh folk music on his writing. The guitar instrumental Un i Sain Ffagan (One for Saint Fagans), for instance, is Bonellos own ode to his former place of employment, Saint Fagans Natural History Museum, and the spot where he himself first discovered traditional Welsh music. Many of the songs featured here pay tribute to the past whilst others address, in very direct terms, contemporary issues.

7 - MY NAME IS IAN - THE POINT OF NO RETURN - (LP) 
BUBBLEWRAP


The Point Of No Return is the fourth album on Bubblewrap from the teemingly fertile, alt-garage-pop mavericks and their fifteenth overall. Tackling a typically diverse range of lyrical subject matter, the album casts its net wide over topics including the minimum wage, flowering plants, lizard people conspiracy theories, environmental destruction and the end of the world. Half constructed around the left-field imaginings of Reginald Foxwell, the ever-burgeoning contributions from James Buzzanca (bass/ guitar) & Joseph Coleby (drums/ programming) bring with them a greater propensity for aural experimentation. The resultant tracks deviate between torch-song cabaret, disco, punk, lo fi and their trademark soaring indie-pop, while also dipping ankles in expansive instrumentals and subdued ambience.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Safe 02. The Andrew Buchan 03. This Is Not A Xmas Song 04. Solitary Confinement And Fly Paper 05. The Point Of No Return 06. Alien Geraniums 07. Cigarettes And Overdrafts 08. Room For Everyone 09. We Are All Cold Blooded 10. Water Hibiscus And Swan 11. Goodbye Thanks For Listening 12. In The Best Case Scenario, Wed Die At The Same Time

8 - PERFECT BODY/ZAC WHITE - FIELDS/SPENT ON YOU - (LP) 
BUBBLEWRAP


Following on from the success of 2017 split ep between Boy Azooga and Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard, Bubblewrap Collective brings you two of the most exciting acts on the Cardiff music scene: Perfect Body and Zac White. The record pressed onto limited edition purple and orange vinyl features artwork from Cardiff artist & musician Teddy Hunter. Perfect Body play a dreamy and psychedelic brand of noise-pop drawing influence from the likes of Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine and merging them with the pop sensibities of the 60s British invasion. The attention gained from their first single Getting Cold saw them supporting the likes of Jen Cloher, Slowcoaches and The Wytches as well as a slot at the Greenman festival this year where they were picked as one of the top 10 bands to watch by Drowned In Sound.Zac White has been playing on Cardiffs live music scene for over five years despite being only 20 years old. Alongside his early days performing with FUR and part of Lily and White, Zac has been honing his own sound based on influences such as Wilco. Loose Fur, Sonic Youth and Broadcast.His 90s/00s off-kilter sound has grown from minimal arrangements with drummer Ethan Hurst into a rollicking, reverb-drenched, garage-psych experience.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Getting Cold 02. Fields 03. Tribe Of Mine 04. Spent On You 05. Nuclear Splinter 06. Sirhan Sirhan 07. Waltz Number 3

9 - QUIET MARAUDER - THE CRACK AND WHAT IT MEANT - (CD) 
BUBBLEWRAP


Following on from their 111-song debut album, MEN (2013), and its considerably shorter follow-up, 11 Shades Of Love (2015), Quiet Marauders third full album for Bubblewrap Collective is a conceptual narrative collaboration with Mathias Kom of Canadian indie-pop wordsmiths The Burning Hell.The Crack And What It Meant describes the emergence of a Crack in time and space in the rural suburbs of Kent and the subsequent social panics, economic posturing, divisional blame games and global belief systems that arrive as a consequence. Narrated by the deep drawl of Kom, the albums 30 tracks veer between short War Of The World synthscapes, pop-folk balladry, post-ironic show tunes and shuffling indie-rock; all tied together by the multiple underlying storylines. These include the death (and rebirth) of science, mass media antagonists, the ambivalent progress of global capitalism, the opening (and closure) of The Cracks Costa Coffee franchise and the rise (and fall) of tramp-turned-soothsayer Daniel alongside his burgeoning, prospering belief system.Intertwining the complex high-concepts and broad instrumentation of Arcade Fire, with the warm, spiky melodicism of The Wave Pictures and the wide-eyed, quick-witted lyricism of Vivian Stanshall, The Crack And What It Meant comes as a limited edition CD with illustrated booklet and cut-out sleeve.

TRACKLISTING: 01. It Arrived In Silence 02. The Discovery 03. The Wheels First Inertia 04. The Panic 05. A Bit Too Familiar 06. Wouldnt This Make A Great Episode Of..? 07. Economics Of Opportunity 08. The Executive Summary 09. We Need More Signage And Merchandise 10. Ministry Of Defence 11. Sheesh!
