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. Get your MP3:


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


"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.
