THE GREEN PAJAMAS - "SUPERNATURAL AFTERNOON" (SUGARBUSH SB041), a brand new album - buy it here on vinyl!

THE GREEN PAJAMAS - "SUPERNATURAL AFTERNOON" (SUGARBUSH SB041), a brand new album from Seattle's finest band, and certainly its most consistent - now releasing records for over 30 years. This is a singles (45s) sampler of sorts pulling together various single releases of the past twenty or so years. Starting with the sublime "January Girl" and stampeding through such classics as "Big Black Storm, "Raise Ravens" & " The Red Red Rose" this album sounds like a cohesive work in its own right and stands as an ALBUM as opposed to a random selection of 45s tracks. Jeff Kelly's work rate is astonishing and it is, frankly, criminal that a band with such sheer talent and genius is not feted around the world and playing to huge audiences. I am moved and amazed that Jeff keeps up such an incredbly high standard of work and one can only assume that, as an artist through and though he is somehow COMPELLED to do so. Lucky us, I say. 
In the meanwhile tiny labels such as us are doing our bit to spread the music and at least release it on a format that will outlive all of us, so that future generations will pick this album up in a junk shop (isn't that the best place for lost gems?) and discover it all for themselves all over again. There is not justice in this world but there is great music, and this IS great music. Buy it, only 300 copies (on purple wax, no less). £19.99 including postage anywhere.

DANIEL WYLIE'S COSMIC ROUGH RIDERS "SCENERY FOR DREAMERS" buy it here on vinyl!

DANIEL WYLIE'S COSMIC ROUGH RIDERS "SCENERY FOR DREAMERS", another volume in our SPECIAL IMPORTS series (IMP044), another fantastic album by Glasgow's premier tunesmith, Daniel Wylie. As good or even better as anything he did with his band COSMIC ROUGH RIDERS, and indeed resurrecting that band name of late, this album is yet another selection of great umbers, beautifully recorded and well produced. Strong Crazy Horse leanings and recalling the best Neil Young mid 70s output ever tracks of this album is a classic and full of vigour with a muscular production to match. It is great to see him write and record so much in the last few years and getting the recognition he deserves, a few more years of this and we shall start calling him a "legend". Keep it up, Daniel -  great work! £18.99 including postage anywhere.

TRAPPIST AFTERLAND - "AFTERLANDER" SUGARBUSH SB042 out now on vinyl, buy it here!

TRAPPIST AFTERLAND - "AFTERLANDER" (SUGARBUSH SB042), limited to only 200 copies, housed in a gorgeous single sleeve cover and completely remastered from the 1st pressing of only 99 copies which is now a major collectors' item! Melbourne based psych folk artists Trappist Afterland have been quietly but consistently releasing some of the most outstanding and distinctive albums in underground circles over the last four years or so. Consisting effectively of the trio of Adam Cole, Phil Coyle and Nick Albanis along with various friends and musical accomplices their use of unusual instrumentation and unique sound (as well as their easy but persistent way with a melody that will get its hooks in and not let go) marks them out as one of the most important and visionary bands currently working in the psych scene. Their new opus 'Afterlander' not only builds on the successes and strengths of past albums but takes the Trappists into a whole new realm of their own, with a set of assured, powerful and majestic songs tinged with mystery, ritual and beauty. t once otherworldly and yet also immediate and persuasively melodic, Trappist Afterland ably suggest a dark mysticism and esoteric sound whilst also maintaining a tight, rhythmic and controlled mastery of their song craft, similar perhaps to contemporaries such as Stone Breath, Six Organs Of Admittance or James Blackshaw. 'Saint Peter And The Rainbow's eastern drone leads into tense and intricate, inventive string work (instruments present on this album include bell citern, hammered dulcimer, bowed psaltery and lute), eerie backing vocals and strident tabla, propelling the song ever forwards. Fans of the afore mentioned bands, acid folk acts such as the Incredible String Band and COB and also of Michael Gira's work with Angels Of Light will find much to adore here.

Black vinyl only £19.99 including worldwide postage.

THE GREEN RAY - "HALF SENTENCES" (Sugarbush SB040), out now, ex-MAN, HELP YOURSELF, TYLA GANG




THE GREEN RAY - "HALF SENTENCES" (SUGARBUSH SB040), a really special album - to us - sees the light of day. Bevis Frond (Nick Saloman) suggested we issue this lovely album. So we did, and we are pleased to offer the only vinyl issue of this great record. Limited to only a few hundred copies on green vinyl this is set to become a collectors' item. This lovely LP effortlessly incorporates West Coast trippyness recalling the best of Quicksilver, Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead albeit the more rural and laid-back side of these bands. Guitars abound and songs stretch out to gentle meandering jams - a really nice album.

The Green Ray were formed in the mid 1990's by Ken Whaley & Richard Treece, both of whom had previously played with the much loved band 'Help Yourself' alongside Malcolm Morley & Dave Charles. After 'Help Yourself' split in 1973, Ken Whaley joined the legendary Welsh band 'Man', contributing to two LP's followed by an appearance on 'The Fish' album, by former 'Country Joe & The Fish' guitarist Barry Melton. Both Ken & Richard Treece had stints with 'The Tyla Gang' - with Richard going on to play with 'The Flying Aces', 'The Neutrons' & 'Donovan's Brain'.

The band released 'Sighs, Whales & Trees' on Shagrat Records in 1995 followed by 'The Green Ray' on Father Yod/Soft Cloud in 1996. During the late 90's many gigs followed including appearances with old friends 'Man'. Ken Whaley passed away in 2013 and this album is Richard Treece's last one with the band prior to his sad passing in 2015. Half Sentences blends Richard's last lyrical runs with the guitar playing of Ken's brother, Simon who switched from drums to share the guitar role on this album. The result is wonderful. The band are still gigging strong with Simon Whaley now permanently on guitar, keeping the Green Ray legacy ever evolving -  you can catch them in and around London and at various festivals..£18.99 including postage anywhere! (Album sleeve is by the renowned artist John Hurford).

Gentle Brent - "Just Dandy" out now n on vinyl, buy it here now!

GENTLE BRENT "JUST DANDY", another volume in our SPECIAL IMPORTS series of albums (IMP 043) and another release on Spain' YOU ARE THE COSMOS LABEL.You might know Brent Randall from his work as Pinecones, but he’s changing the moniker to GENTLE BRENT offering up a brand new album titled Just Dandy. This song’s opening guitar will wrap around you from the get-go, just as the vocals playfully bounce their way into the number. The vocals clearly have the focus, almost giving off a dose of swing in the way they move back and forth with stretched melodies. It’s a short spurt of pop music, dripping with sugar for your ears - twee, sugary bubblegum tinged power pop. .£17.99 including postage anwhere!

THE JACOBITES (Nikki Sudden & Dave Kusworth) "Old Scarlett" buy it here on vinyl!

JACOBITES - "OLD SCARLETT", another volume in our SPECIAL IMPORTS series of albums (IMP 042) and another release on Spain' YOU ARE THE COSMOS LABEL. Following the breakup of the seminal British post-punk outfit Swell Maps, frontman Nikki Sudden embarked on a solo career, then concurrently formed a new band called the Jacobites. Far more classicist than Swell Maps had been, the Jacobites gave Sudden a chance to exercise his penchant for straightforward, elegantly wasted rock & roll, drawing chiefly from the Stones and the Faces while adding elements of singer/songwriter rock (Neil Young, Bob Dylan) and crunchy British glam (T. Rex, Mott the Hoople, David Bowie).£17.99 including postage anwhere!

Parson Red Heads, Ronnie D'Addario & Wade Jackson, all on vinyl, buy them here!

THE PARSONS RED HEADS - "BLURRED HARMONY" (IMP 041), The Parson Red Heads took things into their own hands for their new record, and turned the rear view on the preceding three-and-a-half years since Orb Weaver to get a long, close look at themselves. The resultant exposition of smart, lucid songwriting and willingness to take skewed stances on established modes of sound is refreshingly blurry, and a fantastic soundtrack to the psychoses of your summery, sunny days. £17.99 INCLUDING POSTAGE

RONNIE D'ADDARIO "THE BEST OF 1976-1983" (IMP 040), since 1976, D’Addario has been recording wonderful records in the vein of Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson, and other classic pop songwriters. Published for the first time in a physical format, this LP gathers the very best from his first three albums.  £19.99 including postage.

KONTIKI SUITE - "THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH" (SUGARBUSH SB039) out now on vinyl, buy it here!

KONTIKI SUITE - "THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH" (SUGARBUSH SB039), this fabulous album sees a timely reissue on vinyl (only 300 copies) as we recently released their debut LP ON SUNSET LAKE. This album is equally as good and I am happy to let our friends at the ACTIVE LISTENER blog take up the story:
 "Kontiki Suite proudly flies its Byrds banner via some obvious stylistic hat-tips to 1968’s "The Notorious Byrd Brothers". This time out, the band boasts a batch of impressive new Rickenbacker-based janglers (mainly from the pen of guitarist Ben Singh) and a tougher sound from the rest of the band (Jonny Singh, lap steel guitar; Marcus Dodds, guitar; Mario Renucci, bass; Chris Brown and Craig Bright on drums and percussion respectively). The result is a cohesive, 50-minute flight high above exquisitely atmospheric psych/country-rock/chamber pop soundscapes.
The opening moments of guitar/rim shots in the rousing, Golden Smog-like opener “Bring Our Empire Down” recall David Crosby’s serene “Dolphin’s Smile,” after which some Neil Young-like crunch is thrown in as the song gathers steam. “My Own Little World” features the kind of textured ‘n’ trippy triple-guitar interplay (including lap steel and 12-string Rickenbacker) that characterizes the overall tone of the album – tone that is often upended by deliciously abrupt shifts in tempo: the lads in Kontiki Suite are more than happy to jolt you out of the hypnotized state in which they deftly placed you. Occasional, judiciously chosen blasts of harmonica tug on the same heartstrings as in Big Star’s “Life is White.”
“Free From Sound” and “Here for You Now” are tremendous pop songs, the kind of tracks that, back in the day, would’ve jumped out of an AM radio and grabbed you by the throat. The former features a keening pedal steel hook that’s hell-bent on becoming your next earworm. The latter blends a “Ticket To Ride” beat with power-poppy rhythm reminiscent of Gene Clark’s evergreen “I’ll Feel A Whole Lot Better.” Remastered and re-cut for this new vinyl edition to offer an improved sound spectrum!
