Soft Hearted Scientists: Uncanny Tales From The Everyday Undergrowth

Album Review

Early EP collection from acid pastoral Welsh combo.

So there’s Billy Ray Cyrus sat in Beelzebub’s waiting room, being forced to play Achy Breaky Heart on a one-string banjo for line-dancing demons. Not a Noel Fielding one-liner, this was our introduction into the freaky folk dreamworld of Cardiff’s Soft Hearted Scientists, who slotted neatly into the psychedelic neo-pastoral tradition of fellow Welshmen Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci and Super Furry Animals with this gorgeous 2005 debut, a collection of their first three EPs now re-released with an album of original demos.
