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.

Cian Ciran – 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’ & ‘Sleepless Nights’.
