Super Furry Animals - Radiator
I could pick loads of Super Furry Animals and their assorted other albums. I really loved Cian’s [Ciaran] album from last year, Outside In. But Radiator has ‘Demons’, it has ‘Down A Different River’ and ‘Mountain People’ which I think is the best exploration of Welshness ever written in a song. It’s almost a poem put to music. I think they’re one of our favourite bands full stop. They’re unbelievably talented and I wish they would come back together and tour with us.
