Ample Play Records, home of the wonderful Singhles Club, has allowed us to be the first to bring you the details of the three long player releases they have slated for spring / summer 2013.

First up, set for release on 6 May 2013, is Acetates by LA duo The Smoking Trees.

Subscribers to Ample Play Records Singhles Club will be familiar with the band’s sunshine psych garage after Merry Go Maggie was released as part of the second series of the record club.

Following on will be Bed Bugs with their long player Rapids released on 13 May.

Belgian Bed Rugs can be filed alongside bands like Tame Impala, Deerhunter, The Paperhead and The Sufis. The album is six tracks mixed by Paul Butler (from The Bees, producer for Devendra Banhart and 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.”

And as if this wasn’t enough they’re completing the hat trick with Getting Up, Getting Down from The Sudden Death of Stars on 10 June.

Think Fairport Convention, Velvet Underground or The Byrds for this little treasure chest of an album.

Get all the latest on these or other releases on the Ample Play Records website.
