‘edrycha yn nol trwy’r cychwyn pell, roedd y daith yn fwy na digon’ – Fi yw’r Ffwl

Braint gan Ankst Musik yw cyhoeddi fod Geraint Jarman am ryddhau albym newydd yn 2016. Mi fydd ‘Tawel Yw’r Tymor’, albym rhif undeg chwech, yn ymddangos 40 mlynedd ar ol y record cynta’ ‘Gobaith Mawr y Ganrif’ a welodd ola’ dydd nol yn Eisteddfod Aberteifi yn 1976. Yn sicr does na neb wedi bod ar daith debyg i daith artistig Geraint Jarman a mae’r albym newydd yma yn profi fod y daith arbennig yna yn dal i barhau. Mae’r albym newydd yn ychwanegiad cryf i’r adfywiad artistig anhygoel rydym eisoes wedi clywed gan Geraint ar albyms diweddar fel Brecwast Astronot a Dwyn yr Hogyn Nol ac yn gasgliad sydd hefyd yn cynnig rhywbeth gwbl newydd gan yr artist.

Am y tro cynta’ mae Geraint wedi dewis peidio defnyddio offerynnau trydanol a drymiau a wedi canolbwyntio ar greu albym cyflawn gyda swn unigryw iawn o’i gymharu a gweddill ei gatalog. Mae o’n torri tir newydd wrth gydweithio’n agos gyda’r artist gwerin Gareth Bonello(The Gentle Good) a’r cynhyrchydd Frank Naughton er mwyn creu cyfanwaith tyner ag emosiynol. Er fod y chwarae a’r trefniadau yn swnio’n syml ar y wyneb mae’r caneuon yn dal i gynnig lefelau o gymlethdod gyda lyrics barddonol sy’n tynnu y gwrandawr yn agos i fewn i deimlo’r emosiynau cryf sy’n byw yn y caneuon (dyma, yn wir, yw arddull arbennig Jarman ers y cychwyn cynta’)

Mae’r penderfyniad i recordio gyda meddylfryd ‘stripped down’ yn llwyddo i roi y llais fel yr elfen pwysica’ oll yn y profiad gwrando. Mae’r pwyslais yma ar y canwr hefyd i’w weld yn themau rhai o’r caneuon – Gram Parsons( Plis Mr.Parsons), Cheb Khaled, Salif Keita,( Cheb a Salif), Meic Stevens (Rhaid Dihuno Cariad) a hefyd yn y dewisiadau a triniaeth o leisiau pobl eraill ar yr albym – Huw M, Griff Lynch a wrth gwrs merched Geraint - Lisa, Hanna a Mared.

Mae hi fel record mae hi yn medru bod yn ddirgelwch hyfryd–‘llun collage fel un gan Schwitters/Hoelen, tocyn tram’ - a hefyd yn ddatganiad personol iawn – ‘fi yw’r ffwl, dwi’n gwybod yn iawn/Am i mi gredu dy gelwyddau’. Mae’r penderfyniad gan Geraint i fod yn ddewr a mentro i greu ei gelf mewn modd gwahanol wedi llwyddo heb os, a wedi cynnig albym gorffenedig i ni sydd yn un i’w drysori.

ARTIST – GERAINT JARMAN

CAT NO – ANKST 140

DATE - JULY 22 2016

‘Edrycha yn nol trwy’r cychwyn pell, roedd y daith yn fwy na digon’ – Fi yw’r Ffwl

It is with great pride and excitement that Ankst Musik Records announce that in 2016 Geraint Jarman will release his new album ‘Tawel Yw’r Tymor’ (Quiet is the Season), his sixteenth album release - exactly forty years on from the 1976 release of his debut abum ‘Gobaith Mawr y Ganrif’ (Saviour of the Century.)

Irony aside, history has proved this debut to have been no idle boast, as once he got into his stride with a touring band Y Cynganeddwyr (The Poets) modernity finally arrived in the Welsh language rock culture and with it came a golden period as Welsh music finally became alive and vital. Rock, new wave, reggae, dub and country rock were all present and correct on a brilliant series of albums he released on labels such as Sain and Ankst. It is generally accepted that few can match Geraint Jarman’s immense and continuing effect and influence on Welsh language music over the past half a century. As a highly original composer, poet, performer and television producer he has had a defining effect on every decade of the story of Welsh language youth culture and his scheduled appearance on the main stage at Festival Number 6 later this year is testament to his continuing relevance. New collection Tawel Yw’r Tymor sees Jarman breaking new ground yet again. For the first time in his career he has scaled down his music to the barest minimum – Song and voice dominate, and what we hear on the album is no drums, no electric instruments, but instead a collection of brilliant, beautiful and beguiling songs woven deep into sparse, atmospheric acoustic arrangements.

This decision to seek out the essential has resulted in possibly one of his most satisfying and greatest albums. He has shaped this collection with folk artist, singer and guitarist Gareth Bonello (The Gentle Good) and producer Frank Naughton, with vocal contributions from Huw M and Griff Lynch (Yr Ods) and his three daughters Lisa, Hanna and Mared. The album is undeniably personal, but the voice and lyrics are (as ever) immensely poetic and mysterious– ‘a collage painting, like the ones by Schwitters, a nail, a tram ticket’ – It all seems to be about feelings not facts. Although many of the songs have a basis in reality with references to other singers like Gram Parsons, Cheb Khaled, Salif Keita and (indirectly) Meic Stevens this collection is totally grounded in Geraint’s beautiful singing voice alone. Hearing such a familiar voice in new sonic surroundings offers such a special and rich experience, one that complements the songs in a timeless fashion.

The album will be launched with a concert on Friday 22nd July at St John’s Church Canton, Cardiff.
