So now we’ve passed a hundred posts, I thought it was time to bust out something a little out of the ordinary. I’ve had this tune on the backburner for a few weeks now and I’ve been dying to post about it, but I was waiting for the right time to do so. Entry 101 seems like as good opportunity as any.
Here’s Welsh songwriter Meilyr Jones, the former frontman of Race Horses, with some wonderful orchestral chamber pop to sink your teeth into. I can’t really remember how or why I heard about him, or how I came across this amazing song Don Juan, but my musical tastes have definitely been enriched for doing so.
Think of a mix between Jonathan Richman and the Divine Comedy. But from Wales. And with a harpsichord. That’s how beautifully bonkers this lovely little song is.
