on his 4th solo LP, rhys presents an enjoyable take on the fabled 18th century explorer John Evans, who left his native Gwynedd in a vain attempt to find a mythical tribe of Welsh-speaking Native Americans, drawing one of the first maps of the Missouri River along the way.

"Rhys retraced Evans' tour of the American heartlands before entering the studio & the musical influences are clear in the alt-country stomp of '100 Unread Messages' & the Muscle Shoals soul-tinged 'Liberty (Is Where We'll Be)'. It's all a long way removed from the pscyh-rock of the Super Furry Animals or the sleek Neon Neon, but this is a charming & at times fascinating album – as much a celebration of Americana as a legendary Welsh folk hero" - the skinny.
