I can fairly well guarantee you won't hear another album like this all year.... The first album from Gwenno was sung all in Welsh and now for the follow up, Le Kov, it's all sung in Cornish

The strangeness of lyrics makes it all a bit other worldly and the woozy psychedelic atmosphere of the music heightens that feeling

The vocals on the opener are all breathless and seductive, almost dragging you in. Track 4, Eus Keus?  is what would have happened if Kraftwerk had grown up in Truro

It all gets weirder as it goes along - Daromes y'n Howl is a sort of kosmiche rag time

It's a very hard album to review and will probably be one you love or hate but early indications are it will be the former
