The Friday Thing: Gwn Mi Wn by Gruff Rhys

Earlier this week, I was watching the Teenage Cancer Trust benefit concert special again to watch Noel Gallagher and The Coral perform. After that, I wanted to see the other acts and after about 40 minutes, Gruff Rhys came on. I recognized him from Super Furry Animals, so I watched it. I absolutely love it how he only needs himself, a loop machine, and a bunch of 'found' objects to make such a masterpiece. It's very Jamie Lidell or Joeseph Arthur. I'm a sucker for one man bands, I know, but the fact that he's able to have the head to make so many layers on the spot like that. It's a very nice song, and it's great that you don't have to understand welsh to enjoy it!
