Gruff Rhys has been a busy guy, collaborating with Tony Da Gatorra, Gorillaz, Simian Mobile Disco, and on the Dark Night Of The Soul project. He just released a new solo track, to appear on an upcoming 12″ as well as his “… recently completed, and previously unannounced, third solo album.” Here’s Rhys’s description of the track:
Help! A song in the form of a large silver shark was discovered yesterday off the west coast of Wales. A mysterious recording was made of it as it swam aggressively past a miked up dilapidated wooden fishing trawler, like some old boat off Jaws. The recording, that you can listen to up there in bottled form, goes under the name ‘Shark Ridden Waters’ and is believed to bear all the sonic hallmarks of producer Andy Votel.
