Gorky's Zygotic Mynci How I Long To Feel That Summer In My Heart

Welsh underground faves Gorky's Zygotic Mynci return with their second Canadian album (and seventh overall), and it follows thematically and sonically in the footsteps of 1999's Spanish Dance Troupe ¾ mellow, olde English-y folk tunes that are heartbreakingly beautiful. According to singer/guitarist Richard James, "this was probably the easiest and most enjoyable records to make." But fans who've followed the band since their inception might long for some of the more eccentric psychedelic freak-outs, quite often sung in Welsh, that dotted their early work. In My Heart never quite rocks out. "As you grow older, some of the lessons you learn is being more subtle," says singer and multi-instrumentalist Megan Childs. "You don't need to everything you're putting on there." What is there is an album that's lovely, layered and subtle, and a sure treat in the right mood. Just not for all moods. (Mantra)
