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.
