Last few vinyl LP copies of CADDY - "THE BETTER END" (SUGARBUSH RECORDS) here!



CADDY - "THE BETTER END" (SB015), limited to only 300 copies on sky blue vinyl!
Sometimes it is best to DIY, and that is precisely what Tomas Dahl has done on "The Better End". After many years in the music industry, partly as a drummer in bands like Turbonegro and The Yum Yums, he is now in the driver's seat with his own project Caddy.
The songs on the album have been made during the past eighteen months, and is written in such diverse places as the Norwegian Mountains, via the French Riviera, Fuerte Ventura and Perth in Australia. Here you're served a delicious mix of The Beach Boys, classic power pop and several of his personal favorites such as The Shadows, Kraftwerk, Teenage Fanclub and Don Henley.
Although there are still great emphasis on catchy pop songs, Dahl also gets to showcase himself as a lyricist on "The Better End". The result is a sophisticated summer album, with lush vocal harmonies, beautiful arrangements and dreamy melodies.
He has written all the songs and recorded the album all by himself, but is joined by Bendik Brænne on saxophone for the song "Wherever You Go", and Janne Hea on vocals on "Bring It Back".



SOLD OUT NOW (sorry)

Pre-order CADDY - "TEN TIMES FOUR" here on vinyl, ships November 17th.

CADDY - "TEN TIMES FOUR" (SUGARBUSH SB055), following on from 2015's THE BETTER END, here comes the latest album by Norway's finest: Caddy. Another very fine selection of fantastic songs this really is the last word in Powerepop and in the words of Powerpop News: "There are so many standout tracks here it’s hard to know where to start. The pulsating start of “Somewhere Beautiful” bursts into about as radio-friendly a chorus as you’ll hear this year. The aptly named “Contagious” is more than worthy of it’s title. With it’s harmonies, hand claps and monster hook of a chorus, it’s a real keeper. Then, one can settle comfortably into the jangle-fest that is “Not the One” or soak in the Big Star feel of “Safe Travels”. It’s nothing short of a vacation for the ears. With fantastic production, a killer cut and a fantastic sound, this 140gm pressing is housed in a pvc lined inner for added protection. Only 300 copies pressed, this is expected to sell out very quickly. Only £19.99 including worldwide postage! (Ships November 17th).

THE GREEK THEATRE "LOST OUT AT SEA" a psychedelic masterpiece, only 200 on vinyl - buy it here!

THE GREEK THEATRE "LOST OUT AT SEA" SB011,
A fabulous Californian West Coast themed album by this new band. Out for the first time on vinyl, this got rave reviews when first released on download about a year ago. Shades of DAVID CROSBY, BEAU BRUMMELS, THE BYRDS and the fantastic songs make this an essential addition to any self-respecting Psych collection. You would not dream that these are a couple of Swedish guys sitting by a lake in the middle of the countryside, but there you are. It has San Francisco all over it and you will love it.

VELVET CRUSH "Free Expression" buy it here on vinyl, free postage!

VELVET CRUSH - "Free Expression", Among power-pop's truest believers, Ric Menck is a visionary and a scholar, a brilliant pilgrim on a lifetime quest to understand and master that inscrutable fusion of allure, insight and energy that yields the most sublime melodic devotionals to the grand wizards of the two-minute single: Brian Wilson, Alex Chilton, Roger McGuinn, Ray Davies, Pete Townshend, Phil Spector, etc. That he has sought to do so from behind a small drum kit rather than with a guitar or piano only heightens the intensity of the Illinois native's efforts, sharpens the clarity of his perspective. Where other auteurs have found easy creative satisfaction in the imitation of some obvious aspect of their icons' formulae, Menck — who can both sing and play guitar but rarely does either in public — demonstrates a keener, deeper obsession with the zen of pop.

THE JACOBITES - "GOD SAVE US POOR SINNERS" (LP plus 7" single) buy it here on vinyl, free postage!

THE JACOBITES - "GOD SAVE US POOR SINNERS" (LP plus 7" single), What do you do for a second act when the bedroom rock band you formed with your little brother and a couple high school buddies churned up some of the richest soil of a musically fecund age? The Swell Maps, led by Nikki Sudden and his brother, the late Epic Soundtracks, have gotten props over the years from members of Sonic Youth, Big Black, and Pavement for their prescient blend of punk economy, Krautrock-inspired experimentation, and lo-fi production values. But Sudden took a decisive turn when the Maps broke up in 1980, adopting the persona of a folk-rock troubadour and the wardrobe of a glam rocker. His beautiful-loser laments owed more to Bob Dylan and Neil Young than to erstwhile inspirations Can and Faust; and whereas the teenage Swell Maps looked like a bunch of comic-book collectors, he came off like a composite of Marc Bolan and Keith Richards, with his leather pants, silk scarves, garish costume jewelry, ruffled shirts, and omnipresent dangling cigarette. In 1984 he hooked up with fellow mascara junkie Dave Kusworth, and as the Jacobites they made several fine collections (Jacobites and Robespierre's Velvet Basement are both available on Mammoth) of tunefully off-the-frilly-cuff semiacoustic laments about lost love and their own mythical existence as rock 'n' roll fops. After the two songwriters split in 1986, Sudden used the name for a few solo projects, but in 1993 he reunited with Kusworth, and the duo's second wind has lasted far longer than its first. God Save Us Poor Sinners was thei com-back album originally released on Bomp! Records in the USA.

DANIEL MCGEEVER "Cross The Water" new album - buy it here on vinyl, free postage!

Daniel McGeever - "Cross The Water", Sugarbush's very own WELLGREEN man makes solo LP, a beatifully produced Scottish Pop gem. The opener “Julia” builds a mid-tempo love song that recalls Elton John or Paul McCartney with a chorus brimming with sweet harmonies. The emotional appeal of McGeever’s music also reminds me of Graham Gouldman or Gilbert O’ Sullivan. The album starts out hopeful, “Life’s A Game” has McGeever belt out the chorus, and it leads to the wistful “Wedding Day,” with its nostalgic feel. On tracks like “Return” the piano takes on a slight baroque quality, but as the album continues the compositions are more classical folk like “For Violet.”

Most of the album is love balladry, but the best romantic gem here is “Our Love Will Remain” and McGeever’s double-tracked harmonies are especially good. “It’s Not Over All Yet” finishes our story with a six-minute epic Billy Joel meets David Gates flourish, dramatically stating “in the face of adversity there is always a little hope.” A great romantic album that stands up to multiple listens, and highly recommended.

Green Pajamas Strung Behind The Sun stream 

Musically, to me, this is the best Green Pajamas album we have released, it's quality of songwriting and playing is simply magnificent.
Original release date: August 15, 1997 by Camera Obscura, Australia.

"With its Art Tatum shuffle, ghostly imagery and Middle East-meets-Middle England vibe, it's as fleeting and special as a dream about the most magical hippie summer you never had." One of the "Top 10 neglected American classics" - Tom Cox, The Guardian Unlimited

From the Camera Obscura website, 1997:
'The first new full-length CD of the Green Pajamas' 60s influenced psych-pop since Green Monkey/Bomp released the truly excellent "Ghost of Love" in 1990. Main songwriter Jeff Kelly has always been one of the US’s finest practitioners of the psychedelic pop song, and over the last few years his songwriting has reached dazzling maturity and depth, as showcased in his most recent solo album "Ash Wednesday Rain". Believing that "Ghosts of Love" was the Green Pajamas "Rubber Soul" and that Kelly and Co still had a "Revolver" in them waiting to be drawn out, Camera Obscura approached Green Pajamas to coax them out of their semi-retirement. The result is "Strung Behind the Sun".

'Over the course of 15 songs, the Pajamas stage the biggest comeback since Lazarus, and show why no-one can touch them in their chosen genre. "Strung Behind the Sun" is a dazzling ray fired into the prism of psychedelia refracting off in all directions. Lyrically, it is a winter record, and one imagines long creative afternoons spent in Seattle coffeehouses under siege from the rain. The listener is treated to songs about snow and Madonna complexes, family and strangers, love and loss. Standout Kelly’s tracks "The Brain I Realize" updating "I am the Walrus" and "Tumbledown Tess", written in the wake of his father’s death. Other band members also contribute in fine style, Joe Ross’s "anthemic "Graduation Day", and Eric Lichter’s "Scarlet Song" which climaxes the album.'

Only £28.99 for this 2LP set (80 minutes), including postage anywhere in the universe!

TRAPPIST AFTERLAND & MOONGAZING HARE "SONGS FOR NATHAN" buy it here on vinyl, only 200 copies, bonus track!

TRAPPIST AFTERLAND / MOONGAZING HARE - "SONGS FOR NATHAN" (SUGARBUSH SB051), an audiophile issue on vinyl for the first time with 4 extra tracks not on the cd. a collection that gathers together both Moongazing Hare and Trappist Afterland for an twelve track split set. Hopefully if we think on, we’ll be coming back to this in due course, for now a brief tasting of what to expect with us finding ourselves somewhat smitten by both bands openers. The haunting ‘fine horseman’ opens the Moongazing Hare account, emerging from the twilight, a ghost lit ballad whose shadowy entrancement creaks with a magical hush to softly draw you in with its eerily whittled woodland craft and into the bargain sumptuously steeped with a morose majesty that recalls the black heart procession. Trappist Afterland serve up ‘restless day’, in truth sounding like they’ve fallen from another age long since consigned to memory and legend, they craft a seriously intricate and nonetheless bewitching brew which manifests in the shape of this outer worldly spirit walker. Swarthy, hazy and a tad mystic, ‘restless day’ is the kind of thing you’d expect to emerge from the shadowy backwaters of Ecstatic Peace et al, a mysterious folk wanderer weaving a multi lingual tapestry of tripping acid folk and Indian raga mosaics. £19.99 including postage annywhere.
