Crackling Vinyl W/Yucatan [+]


yucatan copy

Yucatan will be releasing an album and touring in 2015. The album was recorded in Snowdonia and very much reflects the area. Their epic performance of sweeping instrumentation, soaring choirs, and breathtaking vocals, in the band’s mother tongue of Welsh, will deliver shimmering celestial sensations in bucket loads!

Yucatan’s self-titled debut album, recorded in Snowdonia and mastered at Sigur Ros’ studio in Iceland, has received considerable praise from critics. The album has been described as “stunning music from a special place” by BBC Radio One’s Huw Stephens.

They have performed in a variety of festivals, and toured the UK to promote Enlli, their sold-out vinyl EP, released on their own label, Recordiau Coll. They have also toured in Poland and there are further plans to tour Europe to promote the new album.

Crackling Vinyl began in November 2011 as an excuse for music enthusiasts,Adam Walton, Ben ‘Soundhog’ Hayes and Elin Bach to play their favourite records in their favourite music venue far away from the madness of endless requests for the kind of R&B that wasn’t pressed on Chess Records.
Previous live guests at Crackling Vinyl have included: Gallops, Paper Aeroplanes, Katell Keineg, Alun Tan Lan, Gulp, Zervas & Pepper, Euros Childs, Cate Le Bon, Laura J. Martin, Y Niwl, Colorama, Richard James, H. Hawkline, Mowbird, Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog, Toy Horses, T.G.
