Ok so I know there has already been one track of the day today BUT I felt like this one deserved to be showcased. This is kind of in response to Tune of the Day Issue #3 where I was accused by my fellow AltSounds people of “being out of the country for too long” for not liking the Marina and the Diamonds song choice. As such, this is in an effort to prove that I still have my musical tastes firmly rooted in Welsh music, but the good stuff…..not Marina and her freaking Diamante Crystals.
Tom Jones has been making music for like 50 or 60 years and, this collaboration sees him picking up a vintage sound with a ton of swagger. I actually heard it for the first time last night on the radio of a car service as I was riding from Brooklyn back in to Manhattan at which point I decided to write this feature to showcase it to the rest of the world.
So Huw….stick this piece of awesomeness in your Welsh pipe and smoke it!
