GREEN PAJAMAS - "IF YOU KNEW WHAT I DREAMED" (SUGARBUSH SB022), limited to 300 copies only on translucent green vinyl.
An amazing album that is finally out on vinyl. This was previously released as a download only album with live-in-the-studio versions of songs from Kelly's solo albums as well as a few of the band's oldies and two new songs. The sound quality is incredible and this pressing sounds particularly dynamic. The stripped-down production, always incredibly powerful, emphasizes the power of Kelly's melodies, making this an album of understated beauty and an absolutely essential addition to our catalogue.

THE JUNIPERS "RED BOUQUET FAIR" (SUGARBUSH SB024) is now sold out.

THE JUNIPERS "RED BOUQUET FAIR" (SUGARBUSH SB024), the amazing Junipers release their second album on Sugarbush Records. Limited to 250 copies on red vinyl and only 235 copies on black vinyl, this is one of the absolute highlights of 2016 for us. Their first incredible album for us "Paint The Ground" sold out its first pressing in about 1 month back in 2014 and the yellow vinyl 2nd pressing is also almost sold out.
In short, this is a highly collectable and much loved band and we have no reason to assume this very limited pressing will also sell out in a short time. Musically, it is brilliant, a fantastic slice of 60s-tinged English Psychedelic Pop. Although only just released it has "classic" written all over it and will in time be seen and heard as one of the finest British Guitar Psych/Pop albums of all time.SOLD OUT.

SOME NEW REVIEWS from the wonderful PTOLEMAIC TERRASCOPE website! Duncan Maitland, Dowling Poole & Orgone Box

SOME NEW REVIEWS from the wonderful PTOLEMAIC TERRASCOPE website!



 As with so many releases on Sugarbush, The Dowling Pool have a sixties feel, jangly guitar, and plenty of melodic swagger, however on top of that the music on their latest album is very difficult to categorise, sure it is definitely psychedelic but there is also a seventies art rock bent and the song writing of Blur seems present as well especially on the opening salvo of “Rebecca Receiving” and the sprightly groove of “Fight, Fight, Fight”. Equally entertaining is “When She Knows, She Knows” a fine slice of UK pop with honky tonk piano and an arrangement that is more complex than it sounds, with the vocal harmonies reminding me of Queen in 1975, as does the following tune “Vox Pops” which could be an outtake from “A Night At The Opera” which is a good thing and illustrates the quality of the writing on the album. To end side one, “Willing To Change” is a delightful tune that you continue to sing as you flip the record over where you discover the delights of “Hope and Glory” which could be a brit-pop classic except it is better than that, a glorious musical romp with smart lyrics and plenty of musical changes reminding me of XTC at their finest. As the album moves on there is plenty to love and even a nod towards Prince on the lovely “Bring Back The Glow”. To end it all, the title track glows with warmth, a gentle way to leave an album that is overflowing with wonder and quality, an album that will be getting plenty of air time this summer.

Consisting of four track recording from the early nineties, “Lorne Park Tapes” chronicles the early musical development of Orgone Box through the songs of Rick Corcoran during a period where the main memories are “beach, pub,studio, train, rehearsals, gigging, ligging, someone's crash pad, repeat..”. To be fair the sleeves notes almost write the review themselves, a self confessed infatuation with The Beatles evident throughout the album, this obsession fighting with a love of melodic American Rock such as Tom Petty or Cheap Trick to produce song that could how the fab four would have sounded had they been American and famous in the seventies. This mix has resulted some excellent tunes that could define Power Pop, meaty guitar sweetened by melodic loveliness, with tunes such as “In The Right Hands” and “Hello Wonderland” making all the right moves and sounding very professional for four track recordings. Over eleven songs there is a definite personality and coherence to the tunes meaning they flow together to create a collection that all work together. Highlights include “Star” which has some great seventies guitar sounds and “Barbican” a tune with a darker lyrical content that reminds me of something by Cockney Rebel. Nice and noisy my favourite track is the excellent “Last Ride On The Jets”, guitar rocking out with abandon, plenty of jangle and shining with melodic sunshine, a perfect musical moment that makes me happy. To end, “Hard For Me” wears the Beatles influence proudly on its sleeve, a slightly muffled sound only adding to its charm.

With a twang of steel guitar and an easy strum, “Your Century” kicks off the latest release from Duncan Maitland with a laid back seventies vibe, bright production and plenty of hooks drawing you into the warm melodic charms of the track with the bit in the middle reminding me strongly of 10cc, the charms continued on “Terry The Toad” another delightful and very relaxed tune that is easy on the ear, beautifully arranged and filled with some great playing. As the side continues you realise just how good the song writing is, shades of The Lilac Time, XTC, Paul McCartney and (I might have to whisper this) Gilbert O'Sullivan to be heard in songs such as “Crash Position” or the lilting loveliness of “Handbirds”, side one finished in style with “Alien At Home”, a song so catchy you can sing along the first time you hear it. With no let up in quality on side two, listeners are guaranteed a good time as a sweet trumpet heralds in the slightly reggae groove of “Up To You” another catchy as hell tune, whilst the lazy messing about on the river feel of “Insect Under The Stone” is drenched in the scent of lilac and honeysuckle so languid is its intent, especially as the trumpet takes over the melody line, beautiful. Throughout this collection the harmonies are spot on, the playing immaculate and the flow of the album ensures a sunny and suitably mellow 40 minutes is to be enjoyed anytime. If you grew up listening to the radio in the seventies then the tunes will bring back memories, although this is no retro trip, just a collection of timeless and wonderful songs. So three album that are different in style yet all shine with the quality that you have come to expect from Sugarbush records. (Simon Lewis)
