CLINTON-“PEOPLE POWER IN THE DISCO HOUR”

toni-tan:

I buy far too much vinyl for someone who still hasn’t actually ordered a deck yet
I got Penthouse and Pavement (Heaven 17), Introspective (Pet Shop Boys), High Island High Rain (Aztec Camera), and a ridiculously rare Cornershop Single Sided 12” Promo/Demo of Butter the Soul. It’s only like 1 of 500, and I got t for £2 because the blank side had graffiti on it. :’)

Sudden Death of Stars September 2014 dates + new single

“The least French-sounding band in France” (Uncut Magazine) mark their return to these shores with a new single.

The Stars as they have become to be known showcase their songwriting and imaginative instrumentation with 3 songs.  The main track ‘The Break Up’ has the spirit of Riot Grrrl and joyous vintage organs‘All About You’ could have been written in the heights of Muswell Hill, and ‘The Love Substitute’ ends this 3 song blast of brilliance with horn accompaniment. Most complete even when you break it up.

13/09 Shacklewell Arms, London free entry

14/09 Smoked & Uncut Food & Music Festival, Bath

18/09 Point Ephemere, Paris with Quilt

26/09 Puzzle Hall Inn, Sowerby Bridge, Halifax

An Ample Play release, a monster compilation - The Time And Space Machine Presents ‘The Way Out Sound From In’

image

"It’s about time someone got together a killer compilation of Time And Space Machine Mixes. From start to finish this is a full set of end to end burners - Warpaint, Jagwar Ma, Temples, Psychemagik and more all get the treatment. The perfect soundtrack to those phased-out psychedelic summer nights.” Rough Trade Shops

Ample Play Records release a heavy duty collection of Richard Norris’ recent Time And Space Machine Mixes on August 25th.  A man of many guises, he has operated as a duo - as The Grid with Dave Ball, as Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve with Erol Alkan - but when it’s time for some solo sonic action, he records and remixes as The Time and Space Machine.  We find him at it here: 'The Way Out Sound From In’, reworking the most cosmic beat combos around into hitherto unheard psychedelic shapes.  Warpaint, Jagwar Ma, Temples, Psychemagik, The Sufis and more fall into the Time and Space Machine and come out the other side with wider grins and shinier eyes.  It’s The Way Out Sound From In….all aboard.

"I’m lucky enough to work with some of my favourite artists. I try to stay true to them while adding technicolor and hypnosis to the mix."  Richard Norris

"We aim to achieve
And of hurt let us worry
Tell of your hurting my beloved
They say tell me about your sorrows my beloved

Everyday we ask for your blessing
Tell of your hurting my beloved
They say tell me about your sorrows my beloved

Your forgiveness is wanted”

"Don’t" by Sudden Death of Stars // Whirligig/Uniforms/Don’t (Out Now via Ample Play Records)

Stumbling upon gold while blindly skimming Soundcloud recommendations is one of the more enjoyable ways to discover new music. Recently, I noticed “Don’t”, a hypnotic swirl of psychedelia from French rock experimentalists, Sudden Death of Stars. Upon first listen, I was reminded of the slow burn psych pop of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, the lush and mysterious atmospherics of The Black Angels, and the shimmering guitars of Doves' early years. It's certainly a potent mix, and it's all blended seamlessly by Sudden Death of Stars, leaving you with a wholly wonderful creation that demands repeat listens. It's a killer track and one that is easy to find yourself lost within.

Free Love - Cornershop

Matsuki Ayumu まつきあゆむ ‘Two Of Us’ - get your MPfree by joining the Ample Play Records mailing list

The cult of Matsuki Ayumu spreads.  The young Tokyo multi-instrumentalist continues selling his wares with the help of Jaan Silmberg from Pistoltrixx Films, Toronto who has created a unique and humorous video for the track ‘Two of Us’ that sees civilization change into a world of super heroes and pixellaction - the best sleepover to celebrate the school holidays.  ‘Do Hard Disks Dream of Love?’ is classic Matsuki, “major league like Tame Impala, out of the court” to give a double A release that kicks most UK bands out of the parking lot.

Double A single ‘Two of Us’ & ‘Do Hard Disks Dream of Love?’ out 18th August. Taken from the album ‘Terraforming (Alternative)’.
