bed rugs Rapids (CD, £8.25)label: Ample Play
4 young Belgians filed in the same catalogue as Tame Impala, Deerhunter, The Paperhead and The Sufis. Named themselves after the stolen mat in The Big Lebowski. 2012’s release of their first album ‘8th Cloud’ got them rave reviews & healthy radio plays at home and in The Netherlands. They played over 40 shows in less than a year, including Pukkelpop, Ancienne Belgique and Crossing Border. In November 2012 they spent 5 days in a local church to record 6 new songs with Niels Hendrix resulting in the album ‘Rapids’, mixed by Paul Butler (from The 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'. Further endorsement comes from Jacco Gardner who has picked them as support for his European tour dates.
