I am almost deliriously happy – working with such a pro producer helped turn my sonic ideals into reality. I think my favourite is No.4 ‘I Chwerthin’, but I love them all, especially the Tom Waits-esque percussion on ‘Criwch Ddim’ (which involved a bucket and a radiator), the layered vocals in ‘Two Wild Birds’, the intensity of ‘La La Low’, plus of course, Noel’s impelling drums and double-bass throughout.

He represents Mercury Prize Nominee Sam Lee, amongst other impressive distinctions and has a wealth of experience. We discussed WOMEX and worked on plans for 2014 (very exciting).
