Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci – Bwyd Time

3 06 2010

Listened: Wednesday June 2

I love how much I’m learning because of this project. Apparently “bwyd” means food in Welsh. I had never bothered to look it up before.

As you can see from the cover, Bwyd Time is more acidhead craziness from early in GZM’s career. There are a couple of nice instrumentals on this album (they set the mood of spooky ancient Wales pretty well) and one of my favorite GZM songs, “Iechyd Da” which means “Cheers!” Definitely this album veers into Pink Floyd/Lord of the Rings territory a bit – there’s a bunch of fantastical spoken word creepiness/storytelling on a couple of tracks.

My big complaint  is that they have the worst-sounding synthesized drums on this album. Methinks this was too early for them to have a proper drummer or drumkit. But luckily it follows that since drums aren’t big priority to them at this point, you don’t hear them too often or too far in front of the mix.
