"Y Dydd Olaf" is the debut album from Gwenno Saunders, an accomplished producer, DJ, broadcaster and singer from Cardiff. The title references a 1976 dystopian science-fiction novel by Owain Owain, and the songs are all sung in Welsh, except the final track performed in Cornish. The songcraft is impressive, the melodies memorable and the performances strong. Each track expertly evokes the eerie analogue pop and psychedelic grooves of BBC radiophonic pioneers such as Delia Derbyshire - and more recent innovators Broadcast and Stereolab - while maintaining their own, unique, identity.
