Super Furry Animals - Dark Days/Light Years (2009) Retail CD
When your side project is off garnering Mercury Music Prize nominations (Gruff Rhys’ 80s automotive concept act Neon Neon and the album Stainless Style) your day job is probably either beyond compare or in an awful lot of trouble. Happily, eclectic Welsh indie wizards the Super Furry Animals have recorded such a mass of just-below-the-radar but well-above-the-water-mark music, in so many garden varieties, and performed so many mind-bending, eye-boggling and ear-popping live shows since the mid-90s that the stature of their albums almost comes pre-guaranteed. The majority of them will have tomore… be dead and buried before they’re in all that much trouble. Dark Days / Light Years is, accordingly, as good as you probably expect it is. Their main peaks remain clustered in the first half of their career, but this collection of songs straddles Fuzzy Logic for grit and Rings Around The World for composition and that is a heady, smooth and effective brew by anybody’s standards, and there’s no dawdling. "Crazy Naked Girls" is as glitzy as the title suggests, like TV On The Radio gone Welsh swamp-glam, and sounds both chest-beating and tongue-in-cheek, the goofy "Inaugural Trams" is like Kraftwerk on Blackpool promenade and features, believe it or not, a German rap interlude from Franz Ferdinand guitarist Nick McCarthy, while homage to their hometown "Cardiff In The Sun" is an expanding by the second 8-minute vocoder-aided psychedelic wonder pickled in thick harmony. Dark days? Perhaps so. Here, as ever, is your ray of light. --James Berry
