Bed Rugs - Blinds
The lastest round of offerings from Burger Records (original label home to King Tuff) includes the infectiously catchy Bed Rugs. I was checking out Burger recently cause my gf wanted to order a copy of the reissue of King Tuff is Dead for a friend…because its one of the best fucking records of all time. I heard one track from Bed Rugs on the Burger stream, but when I couldn’t find them in the catalog, decided it must’ve been an old sold out release. But no, it turns out their Rapid cassette was just released as announced in the latest burger email. Yesss.
In November they spent 5 days in a local church to record 6 new songs withNiels Hendrix resulting int the album ‘Rapids’, mixed by Paul Butler (fromThe Bees, producer for Devendra Banhart & Michael Kiwanuka), who sums it up: ‘this band are on point, the concept of psychedelia rubbing together with glorious song craft was very appealing for us to work on.’
Yep that’s what you’re getting. I’d say for King Tuff fans for sure, but the album is streaming anyways for your preview listening pleasure.
BADAZZ BELGIAN PSYCHEDELIC POWER POP!!! that named themselves after the stolen mat in The Big Lebowski. Nuff said.

Euro-psychedelic-tinged power pop to the max! Bed Rugs are going against the grain just by being from Belgium. I don’t know if they’re Walloons or Flemish, I’m sure if you live in Belgium you know. Surely a common love of Cheap Trick and Fountains of Wayne can unite the country in brand new ways the politicians have not thought of yet.
The band’s new EP is out soon on Burger on cassette here in the States and Ample Play on vinyl/cd in the UK.
Cover of version of Mean Mr Mustard & Polythene Pam originally done for Mojo Magazine. Released as part of the Cornershop (featuring Soko) ‘Something Makes You Feel Like’ single.
/Producer Marco Ricci, was born in Jyväskylä (Finland) and grew up in Trentino Alto-Adige (Italy), and is the founder member of Italian Chillwave/House music act Casa del Mirto. WON is his new solo project.
Whilst most people like to sleep just after midnight, there are those that listen to minimal techno with glitch overtures that are as natural as the sun outside rising and the day breaking, albeit in a funeral to contemporary electronic music.
‘Face Simmetry’ is supported by a hard hitting video created by film-maker Stefano Bellumat aka Joe Barba, “it portrays a young addict, shows sex, heroin, death, but is an allegory for the current financial crisis and how the world of money deprives us of freedom and clarity”
Introducing our last track in the current Singhles Club series - this track is 6 of 6.
Originally from Nottingham, Alberteen met as school kids. Years later and living in different parts of the UK, they met again at a funeral and decided to get together again to make music. An early demo was sent to Tjinder because they knew him and wanted advice. He dug one track especially and invited them to Sassy P Studios to record it.
The track helped them get on their way to record an acclaimed album ‘Metal Book’ produced by Mike Bennett (Trojan Records, The Fall), which came out last year.
The original ‘All You Need to Make a Movie’ as recorded at Sassy Ps is now exclusively offered to you as part of The Singhles Club. In fact, it finishes the last 6 tracks for £6 in this series – which will be available for a further month only. If you haven’t already done so, subscribe here.
