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.

THE GREEN RAY - "HALF SENTENCES" (Sugarbush SB040), out now, ex-MAN, HELP YOURSELF, TYLA GANG




THE GREEN RAY - "HALF SENTENCES" (SUGARBUSH SB040), a really special album - to us - sees the light of day. Bevis Frond (Nick Saloman) suggested we issue this lovely album. So we did, and we are pleased to offer the only vinyl issue of this great record. Limited to only a few hundred copies on green vinyl this is set to become a collectors' item. This lovely LP effortlessly incorporates West Coast trippyness recalling the best of Quicksilver, Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead albeit the more rural and laid-back side of these bands. Guitars abound and songs stretch out to gentle meandering jams - a really nice album.

The Green Ray were formed in the mid 1990's by Ken Whaley & Richard Treece, both of whom had previously played with the much loved band 'Help Yourself' alongside Malcolm Morley & Dave Charles. After 'Help Yourself' split in 1973, Ken Whaley joined the legendary Welsh band 'Man', contributing to two LP's followed by an appearance on 'The Fish' album, by former 'Country Joe & The Fish' guitarist Barry Melton. Both Ken & Richard Treece had stints with 'The Tyla Gang' - with Richard going on to play with 'The Flying Aces', 'The Neutrons' & 'Donovan's Brain'.

The band released 'Sighs, Whales & Trees' on Shagrat Records in 1995 followed by 'The Green Ray' on Father Yod/Soft Cloud in 1996. During the late 90's many gigs followed including appearances with old friends 'Man'. Ken Whaley passed away in 2013 and this album is Richard Treece's last one with the band prior to his sad passing in 2015. Half Sentences blends Richard's last lyrical runs with the guitar playing of Ken's brother, Simon who switched from drums to share the guitar role on this album. The result is wonderful. The band are still gigging strong with Simon Whaley now permanently on guitar, keeping the Green Ray legacy ever evolving -  you can catch them in and around London and at various festivals..£18.99 including postage anywhere! (Album sleeve is by the renowned artist John Hurford).
