A new young band from North East Wales, The Bluebottle Veins release their debut 5 track EP 'Raindrop Blues' on Ample Play Records on 11.11.13. John Robb (Louder Than War) has them down as ‘the BEST young band in the UK right now. Think Marc Bolan, Led Zeppelin or Beefheart, The Bluebottle Veins are part of something quite brilliant – a new rush of bands taking the electric blues and giving them a teenage rush…this band are really special.’
The KVB is the audio/visual project of London duo Klaus Von Barrel & Kat Day. Ample Play will be releasing their new ‘Run Away’ single because it combines JCB guitars, minimal synths, fucked up machine beats and delay drenched vocals with a backdrop of imagery to accompany the symphony differently.
So addicted to Bed Rugs and this song in particular ♥ totally fits the fuzzy mood I’ve been in lately ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
The man who put Super into Furry Animals goes solo, again. Ample Play Records are very proud to release an EP by songwriter, vocalist, keyboard player, producer and founding member of Super Furry Animals, Cian Ciaran. We’ve been inspired by Cian’s fierce combination of musical adventurism and strong political conviction, in keeping with how we like our music – in the finest tradition of protest song such as Curtis Mayfield and Tappa Zukie. Cian’s new songs are full of anti-greed, anti-corruption and anti-establishment messages. The EP features two exclusive new tracks ‘Free’ and ‘Onkalo’ and two tracks ‘Sewn Up’ and ‘Sleepless Nights’, from the forthcoming album ‘They Are Nothing Without Us’ (released Sept 23rd), which follows 2012’s roundly acclaimed solo debut ‘Outside In’.
The Cian Ciaràn Sewn Up EP Tracklisting:
1. Sewn Up (Album Version)
2. Sleepless Nights (Album Version)
3. Free 4. Onkalo 5. Sewn Up (Radio Edit)
6. Sleepless Nights (Radio Edit)
The Sufis ‘No Expression’ from the album ‘Inventions’ out now via Ample Play Records & Burger Records.
The Sudden Death of Stars. Perfect summer psychedelia made in the musical medieval city of Rennes. The single opens with ‘Supernovae’ a “droning, melodic anthem’ (Uncut Magazine) & 2nd track ‘Goodbye’ somewhere where a lullaby and a sixties influenced picnic meet. Taken from the brilliant debut album ‘Getting up, Going Down’ buy it here.
“once again those good people at Ample Play Records have come up with a psychedelic treat for us all. I finally gave it a spin…oh my days…
you know what to expect…garage, nuggets, mushroom tea and a head full of dreams…heaven.” James Endeacott
