Dark Days/Light Years/Good Times

The Super Furry Animals's ninth album, Dark Days/Light Years, is out in a couple of weeks - but age hasn't withered them, nor custom staled their infinite variety. I particularly liked this lyric, from 'Inaugural Trams':

"I will design a town in the image of your face
Round the wrinkles of your eyes, my footsteps you can trace
We could promenade down the infranasal depression
The streets of your hands will never feel a recession."

The song also features some rapping in German and the line "they say the future of cement is set in stone" - and yet it's still as hummable as anything. Viva SFA!
