Maybe the audio is recorded backwards?

It’s more like, “‘L’, but unvoiced” – at least in “Welsh as a foreign language” class. There’s a lot of accents in those parts so I can’t speak with authority.

The video is so breathtakingly bad, you might not have noticed that the Wired article also makes clear that the artist is also a terrible person.

I think? It’s hard to even make the noise without a little preaspiration. And the tongue position is a bit different than an Actual L (at least the way I figured out how to do it). If there’s too much aspiration (or if your tongue is in a bad spot) it ends up sounding… spitty.
