Super Furry Animals release Dark Days/Light Years

Out today is Dark Days/Light Years, the new album from Super Furry Animals. With a work easily as colorful as their new album cover, its hard to deny the many pleasures of SFA. The album offers much to appreciate on so many levels, and that goes for the casual as well as more informed listener. Dark Days/Light Years spins twelve delectable numbers, encrusted with an array of near perpetual motorik groove, blissfully stoned psychedelic run-off, aural transmigrations, classic rock builds, heady pop, and much more. At this moment I am most taken by the color, sheer density, and overall vibrancy of “Cardiff By The Sea”; though, my hips prefer the SFA blended soul funk mover “Moped Eyes,” evoking thoughts of “Sound and Vision,” skaken lightly with “Electric Ave”(Eddy Grant), and jammed out to consummation. Enlightened like its authors, Dark Days/Light Years will do better to explain itself.
