Crackling Vinyl Presents – Y Niwl & Sam Airey
Tuesday 31 January – Tickets £5.00
Crackling Vinyl presents an intimate show at a stunning Georgian Warehouse alongside the Shropshire Union Canal.
After a year on the road as Gruff Rhys’ touring band, Y Niwl bring their thrilling psychedelic surf instrumentals to Telfords Warehouse for the first time. Their debut album Y Niwl was named The Sunday Times Album of the Week on 2 January 2011 and was lauded by both the NME and Drowned in Sound. The track Undegpedwar is currently being used as the theme tune to the BBC television show Football Focus.
“Y Niwl live in the mountains and they’re the world’s highest altitude post-surf band. They sound like post-rockers gatecrashing a Tarantino soundtrack.” – Gruff Rhys
Supporting Y Niwl will be Anglesey’s Sam Airey. Sam’s remarkable songs bring to mind Bonnie Prince Billy or Bon Iver. There’s a compelling depth to his fingerpicked guitar and timeless vocals. Sam recently recorded a session for Huw Stephens’ Radio 1 show at the BBC’s legendary Maida Vale studios.
