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

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.
