8x8 - Inflorescence SB030, 250 copies out now on opal vinyl.

8x8 - Inflorescence (Sugarbush SB030), out now is 8x8's third album and only the second to be released on vinyl. This is pure genius: A magical blend of Beach Boys and Beatles inflected Pop tunes but in a very contemporary setting and by no means derivative or inferior at all to those great artists. Considering that this is a part time project and done on a very small budget with only two persons making the music you could, and I would, argue that this is a mini-masterpiece of modern Psychedelic Pop music. Track after track transports the listener to musical places long unvisited such is the majesty of this great record. Perhaps there is a hint of DIY to the recording process that manifests itself on the first play of the record, however any qualms (and I did not have any) are blown away in seconds as the lush quality of the playing and writing hits your ears. This is simply a record that will one day be revered and the sheer talent of its main protagonist, Lane Steinberg, will be nearly elevated to genius status. That is not to take anything away from Alex Khodchenko who plays guitar and also desibed the sleeve. The two musicians recorded this record over 6000 miles as one lives in New York and the other in Ukraine! A great work lovingly pieced together by two people who have never met in person but who obviously share a great musical affinity.  Buy this record, it is amazing. £19.99 including worldwide postage.

Trolley - Caught In The Darkness SB032, out now on vinyl, 250 copies only on "orange sorbet" vinyl!

Trolley - "Caught In the Darkness" (Sugarbush SB032), out now is the 2nd album by the amazing Trolley. Possibly the finest combination of Psych-Pop, Garage, Powerpop and Moptop Jangling heard in the past 20 years and in fact since the halcyon days of Voxx and Bomp records. However, Trolley have produced and album that puts even the finest records on those labels into a different context. Housed in a wonderful sleeve designed by Adam Widener (who also designed our previous Trolley sleeve - as well as our releases by Dukes of Kent and the first Greek Theatre album) and pressed on beautiful orange vinyl this is a must have album. £19.99 including worldwide postage, 250 copies offered.

THE HANGABOUTS - Illustrated Bird (SUGARBUSH SB031), the fabulous new album on vinyl by Detroit's HANGABOUTS is one of those albums that any label with a modicum of Pop sensibility will jump at the chance to release. From the same gaggle of bands on the Detroit scene that we have released previously (Nick Piunti, Chris Richards and the Subtractions) this album presents the gentle Psych-Pop side of Detroit, a city normally more associated with gritty urban toughness. No, these lads have crafted a lovely Pop record that, dare I say it, would not have sounded out of place in Big Star's cannon and even reminds me of McCartney's gentler side. Hey, even Emmitt Rhodes would surely dig this record. It is a master stroke of lush arrangements, jangling 12 and 6 string guitars, layered harmonies and, best of all, some really fantastic songs. No fillers on here, and one of the best pure pop albums I have heard in years. This is limited on vinyl to ONLY 300 copies, on see through orange vinyl. £19.99 including worldwide postage

NICK PIUNTI - "BEYOND THE STATIC" (SUGARBUSH SB025), limited to only 250 copies on blue vinyl this is Nick Piunti's 2nd album released now on vinyl for the very first time!
Challenged with following a highly acclaimed album, Nick Piunti didn't overthink the task. He just focused on writing the best songs of his life and trusting an incredible group of musicians to help execute his vision. Beyond The Static manages to be both a consummate power pop album and the distinct work of a seasoned recording artist. If you somehow combined the best qualities of Matthew Sweet, Tom Petty, and Paul Westerberg into one songwriter, Nick Piunti would be the guy. Beyond The Static is a superb effort from a music lifer at the very top of his game. If you're a power pop fan and have yet to discover all the amazing sounds currently coming out of Detroit, stop reading right now and start listening! £18.99 including postage anywhere! (by the way, if you scroll down this page you will find we do still have copies of his amazing "13 In My Head" album!
