I haven't heard Gruff Rhys' latest album Seeking New Gods, which came out in May, but I was emailed a link for the Loan Your Loneliness (Edits) EP a couple of days ago. The lead song is a chugging cracker, and the accompanying video is a delight, with giant reptiles, woolly mammoths and Gruff evoking the appearance of 1980s Bob Dylan, albeit with a double-headed electic guitar. Predominantly monochrome with the odd splash of colour to begin, the video explodes into full colour during the extended wig out in the song's latter half. Wonderful.
The EP, which is available on Gruff Rhys' Bandcamp page, contains two other edits. The Luke Abbott Version retains the spirit of the original, stripping out some of the layers and extending the song to nearly eight minutes. The Don Leisure Remix kicks off with a bossanova rhythm before layered vocals, sci-fi FX and looped drums keep things rolling for a crisp three minutes.
A quick search of YouTube also reveals a lovely version, performed at Rockfield Studios, as well as a snippet from his gig at Future Yard in Birkenhead, if you needed proof that it sounds equally wonderful live.
