Grip Weeds - "Giant On The Beach" out on vinyl for the first time ever - buy it here now. Free postage

GRIP WEEDS - "GIANT ON THE BEACH" (SUGARBUSH SB065), limited to ONLY 300 copies on vinyl this is the first ever vinyl issue of this classic 2004 album, previously only available on CD.

"This New Jersey band plays the kind of jangly, space-age rock perfected by bands like the Zombies, Love, and the Quicksilver Messenger Service. There are elements of the Byrds circa "Eight Miles High" or The Notorious Byrd Brothers, Revolver-era Beatles, and San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury bands. Start with the heavy reliance on lush harmonies, mix in acoustic and electric guitars (complete with backward playing and some Coltrane-esque twisting solos), an insistent rhythm track, and ethereal lyrics, and the listener could easily believe himself lost in a time warp." (popmetters.com review)

A fabulous album, to be sure, and pressed on 140gm audiophile virgin vinyl, disc housed in lined inner outside the main cover for extra protection. £21.99 only including postage (includes early bird discount), clikc here now to buy:

DOWLING POOLE "Bleak Strategies" buy it here on vinyl, last few copies!


THE DOWLING POOLE "BLEAK STRATEGIES" SB900, limited edition vinyl.
A modern English masterpiece of clever Psychedelic Pop by Willie Dowling (ex JACKDAW4, Honeycrack & Wildhearts) & Jon Poole (ex CARDIACS & WILDHEARTS), a brilliant piece of work that reminds me of the very best of THE KINKS, 10cc, WINGS, THE BEATLES (especially ABBEY ROAD) and even early Supertramp! A - dare I say it again - work of genius, simply a stunningly fantastic record. I was really thrilled to be asked to release this on vinyl on SUGARBUSH RECORDS by the lads. Do not miss this one as it is an essential addition to our catalogue. LAST HANDFUL OF COPIES!

GREEN PAJAMAS - "PHANTOM LAKE: NORTHERN GOTHIC 3" buy it here on vinyl!

GREEN PAJAMAS - "PHANTOM LAKE: NORTHERN GOTHIC 3 (SOUND EFFECT RECORDS, Greece import) 
Phantom Lake: Northern Gothic 3 is, in many ways, a prototypical Green Pajamas album – full of gently acidic melodies, soulfully plainspoken singing and lyrics haunted by ghosts real and imagined. But, as with all “Northern Gothic” branded releases, there’s something special at work here The band is on fire here. “Lisa Lou” and “The Rosebergs” continue the PJs’ tradition of sharp pop songs, while “The Shepard Well” and “Red Bird” does the same for folk rock. “Ana (All the Way Down),” “Monica Talks to Angels” and “Amy’s Gonna Take You Down” feature some of the group’s toughest rock songs ever, with catchy tunes enhanced by steely guitar fills. The Green Pajamas rarely miss and this is a work of genius!

Sealed copies, very limited! Only £31.99 including shipping anywhere! 

Sugarbush label release - from the archives - NICK PIUNTI - "13 IN MY HEAD" buy it here on vinyl! Last copies.

NICK PIUNTI - "13 IN MY HEAD" (SB700), limited to 300 copies
Amazing and tough DETROIT Power-Pop album, with song after song a classic. If this was the 1970s Nick would be a superstar. Shades of TOM PETTY, AEROSMITH, THE SWEET, THE BYRDS yet this is a very original and unique album. Has won award after award in the music press and Nick also featured on MOJO magazines cover mount CD back in November. This is a truly superb album with song after brilliant song with great harmonies and brilliant guitars. Nick has been making great music for 20 years. Now that's pedigree.

It’s probably fair to say that Nick Piunti is a bit of a veteran in the power pop world given he goes way back to 1975. That’s not to say his music is any less relevant today, thankfully the need for hummable melodies and classic pop songs remains. In this great new release he has created an album which has a power pop feel with a modern rock sound. In many ways it follows other great acts from The Replacements through Redd Kross and The Fountains of Wayne, which have created a magic line of modern pop rock.
The album actually opens with the title track and it’s a brilliant opening number which is a great power pop song. It has that feeling of youth and just carefree fun that we all had at the age of 13. “On The Way Out” keeps it going with another really smooth and catchy song with some great Na Na Nas in it! If hearing this song doesn’t make you at least nod your head then you’d better check your pulse.

LAST FEW COPIES, grab one now!

THE GREEK THEATRE - "WHEN SEASONS CHANGE", order here on vinyl. Free shipping.

THE GREEK THEATRE - "WHEN SEASONS CHANGE" (SUGARBUSH SB064), a brand new release out now. Their amazing 3rd album already mooted to be the album of the year 2019. An incredible album of West Coast inflected guitar Psychedelia. In a limited edition of under 300 copies on vinyl with no repress.
"... a sumptuous, cinematic-style panorama all in all, that shows The Greek Theatre to be a very capable group who, whilst in thrall to some of the great sounds that’ve gone down in the past have more than a keen sense of pushing forward and carving out space to create their own individuality, their experimentalism too very much succeeding with this, at times, totally astonishing latest effort."

"No, ladies and gentlemen, we are not floating in space. Rather, the haunting "Sail Away (Part Two)" reminds us that we are still "lost at sea", where this strange and magical journey all began, not drifting in the firmament, rather looking up at it, with the sun shining warmly on our faces in the daytime, but with the "nights getting cold" as the seasons change. They've managed to accomplish the near-impossible. That is to say, they've raised the already high bar that their relatively short career has already set. This, my friends, is a bona fide masterpiece." (Kent Whirlow, Terrascope review)
 
"Stockholm duo Sven Froberg and Fredrick Persson return with their first release since the standalone single Don't Throw Your Love Away, their third album a limited edition of just 300 vinyl copies (though you can doubtless download from Bandcamp), one of which should be in the collection of any discerning devotee of 60s West Coast psychedelia. Joined by Lars Fredrik Swahn on bass, piano and mellotron with Johan Svedmyr on drums, flautist Erik Lundin and Leo Sander and Sandra Marteleur on cello and violin, respectively, it opens with the short scurrying acoustic guitar-based instrumental Twin Larks before the chiming jangle sets in on the buoyant Laurence of Laurel Canyon. The title alone of The Post-Factual Jam rather speaks to its instrumental freak-out nature, but the strings-soothed Old Jawbone relatively calms things down with its orchestral pop clouds. Then it’s into the eight-minute opus of Bible Black Mare with its pensive bassline, moody haunted desert keyboard atmospherics and the early Neil Young-like vocal whine, the track gradually ebbing away into two minutes of ethereality and whistling....near-wordless, waves-washed track on their Lost At Sea debut, this time with lyrics, as violin and flute enrobed, crystalline pastoral psychfolk, softly dissipating into the ether in its final moments. From the outset, the duo declared that this was a project limited to four albums, and here they sing how there’s “nothing left to say”. Let’s hope not."

DUKES OF KENT - "WELCOME TO THE OAST HOUSE" buy it here on vinyl (from the archives series)

Dukes Of Kent-"Welcome To the Oast House" SB300, this is the album that kicked the Sugarbush label back into life in 2012. Recorded over two years this was always meant to be an album to bring happiness to ourselves and the plan to release it on vinyl was almost an afterthought. But we did it and now we are an extra 64 releases (or so) down the line, 7 years later. I have just found a small box of these, thinking previously that we had almost sold out -  it was limited to 500 copies.



Here is what others said about it at the time:
" Tracks chock-full of chiming guitars, shimmering harmonies and West Coast licks with influences ranging from the Byrds through Crazy Horse to Tom Petty and Joe Walsh: a melting pot of pop,rock, psych and folk with great gobs of swirling guitar which will assuredly set feet tapping and shims shimmying. Limits of the Truth' is one of my favourite cuts on the album, reminding me strongly of early Jackson Browne at the outset. It's the start of a trio of great numbers Side One's closer 'Blue Turns to Red' is just beautifully constructed and performed - a song to be heard and remembered for long after the sun sets over the distant horizon."



"As I listened to “When I Needed You” I was reminded of an early Strawbs song “We’ll Meet Again Sometime.” “Blue Turns to Red” is a day after song about drowning your sorrows, a wonderful blend of country and psychedelia with the song ending with feedback and experimental sounds. “Ever Day Brings Something New” features harmonica and baritone vocals similar to the Soft Hearted Scientists, as well as another great psych rock guitar solo. “Lay My Burden Down” has a 70s acoustic guitar retro sound that takes me back to my youth. “Water” is another acoustic guitar song that veers into the experimental realm while remaining melodic. And the album closes with “Angels and Ghosts,” an excellent country folk singer songwriter song that made me think of Townes Van Zandt, plus another cool electric guitar solo that takes off! This album is for fans of the six-string guitar and West Coast country rock."

GREEN PAJAMAS' JEFF KELLY "BENEATH THE STARS, ABOVE THE RIVER" on Sugarbush, order it here now.

JEFF KELLY / GREEN PAJAMAS "BENEATH THE STARS, ABOVE THE RIVER" (SUGARBUSH SB061), a rare solo album from the Green Pajamas main man Jeff Kelly. Out on vinyl on Sugarbush Records!

Listen here!

"Kelly delivers these songs with an intimacy which brings them home and also propels others with convincing pop-rock (the guitar jangle Senor Senor which revert back to the greatness of Green Pajamas and Moon Over Granada touches the spirit of a more gritty Tom Petty ) or move towards a dreamy Mediterranean heat (Hush of the Southern Night).

Here,with musical influences from the Iberian Peninsula, his acute storytelling (Todo por la Gitana) and these sophisticated, poetic songs where he played just about every instrument himself, Jeff Kelly once again confirms he is a rare writer . . . especially when it now comes to wine, women and Spain."

Green Pajamas "Poison In The Russian Room" out on vinyl for the first time, 300 copies only - on Sugarbush

GREEN PAJAMAS - "POISON IN THE RUSSIAN ROOM" (SUGARBUSH SB062), amazing long lost previously CD-only cult album by Seattle's amazing GREEN PAJAMAS is out finally on vinyl.
 Listen here!

"Nobody likes to throw around terms like “criminally underappreciated” and “under the radar” more than rock critics, but it’s impossible to talk about the Green Pajamas without bringing those hoary old terms into play. Singer/songwriter Jeff Kelly has been leading the Seattle-based band since 1984 (not counting an early-’90s sabbatical during which he worked as a solo artist), turning out an endless stream of enchanting albums that feed on the spirit of ’60s psychedelia but always remain decidedly contemporary. The Pajamas are the kind of band that has long seemed ripe for a renaissance, maybe some flavor-of-the-moment artist going public with a deep Pajamas fixation, the sort of thing that would lend the group some hip cache. But it never seems to happen. After all these years, they remain, to use another well-worn phrase, a well-kept secret." (Prefix Mag)
Limited to only 300 copies, on 140gm virgin audiophile vinyl - remastered - sealed with disc housed outside the cover and in lined inner sleeve for extra protection. Pressed on green vinyl!  Only £19.99 including postage anywhere!
