I count this as one of my major achievements. I’m not dead yet but I think I may be remembered for this.
I think he is absolutely correct that it was a major achievement, but five years later Davies is still putting out fantastic work. As I wrote back in May about Submarine Time, some of Davies’ best work is being produced 25 to 30 years into his career. Absolutely exceptional when you think about that.
Davies’ July release, a collaboration with Gillian Stevens called Y Crythor Du a’r Bleiddiaid, continues his extraordinary work of late. Comprised of Anderson on crwth and some field recordings of Anderson playing the crwth in a cave, their partnership has produced an ambient album that is gratifying as well as beautiful. If you are a musician who produces ambient music or just a fan, stop what you are doing and listen to Y Crythor Du a’r Bleiddiaid − this is what ambient albums should be.
