THE GRIP WEEDS "HOUSE OF VIBES" (SUGARBUSH SB048) out on vinyl now, buy it here!

THE GRIP WEEDS "HOUSE OF VIBES" (SUGARBUSH SB048), out now is their classic debut 2004 album repressed on high quality 140gm audiophile vinyl! Limited to only 400 copies with a full colour insert.
The New Jersey band's raucous blend of Cheap Trick's power chords, the Byrds' ethereal jangle and CSNY's airy harmonies was different, half a decade too early for the New York-based garage revival of the early 00s, and a decade or so too late to be in sync with the West Coast's Paisley Pop movement. No wonder this self-recorded, self-released gem of the power pop art fell on mostly deaf ears, lauded by a few Jersey visionaries, hailed in Germany but completely ignored by commercial radio and MTV.
It's too bad, because if there ever were a record tailor-made for blasting out of AM radio on the way to the beach House of Vibes is it. From the first crunching chords of "Out of Day" through the last feedback tripping psych solo of "Walking in the Crowd", the record balances precisely at the tipping point between rock and pop. It's the same enticing ground that the Who covered in their classic Sells Out, simultaneously hard-edged and accessible, blossoming with melody and rackety with drums. And along the way, the band cranks out half a dozen classic songs, "Salad Days", "Close Descending Love", and "Don't Belong."
This is a truly stunning album and the fact that this band are not massive is tragic as well as kinds cool as it keeps us who are in the know part of a very exclusive club. Buy this album today, you will not regret it. Sealed from the factory - limited to 300 copies - on audiophile 140g black vinyl - now with extra smooth polylined inners to ensure maximum quality. Only £19.99 including FREE worldwide postage.

DOM MARIANI & THE MAJESTIC KELP - "HI SEAS" new album out now, buy it here on vinyl

DOM MARIANI & THE MAJESTIC KELP "HI SEAS" (SUGARBUSH SB047), out now in a very limited pressing of ONLY 300 copies on vinyl comes Aussie legend Dom Mariani's latest release. Touring with the Stems this year in 2018 will do nothing to harm what should be rave reviews for this fanatstic platter. Taking its cue and influence from Soft 60s Surf sounds it also incorporates elements of LEE HAZLEWOOD, JACK NITZSCHE and sounds of EXOTICA. Always prevalent, however, is Dom's twangy reverb drenched guitar. What makes this album stand out are the superb arrangements and an overwhelming air of mystery and wonder. Some of the tracks are so laid back as to be almost soporific but keep the listener hooked and awaiting the next surprising twist. The album is almost completely Instrumental with a few vocals added here and there. This is a gorgeous album and the perfect soundtrack for a laid back summer's afternoon. Sealed from the factory - limited to 300 copies - on audiophile 140g black vinyl - now with extra smooth polylined inners to ensure maximum quality. Only £21.99 including FREE worldwide postage.

DUNCAN MAITLAND (with Pugwash) "Lullabies For The 21st Century" last copies on vinyl here!


DUNCAN MAITLAND "LULLABIES FOR THE 21ST CENTURY" (SUGARBUSH SB017), only 250 copies on coloured vinyl! £18.99 inc. postage. Ex Pugwash man Duncan Maitland sees his legendary album released on vinyl for the very first time. Featuring members of XTC, DIVINE COMEDY & PUGWASH this is a fantastic 60s tinged album of melody, harmony and brilliant playing. A review in "Powerpopaholic" sums it up thus:"Dublin native Duncan Maitland is joined by an all-star guest line-up on his smashing debut Lullabies for The 21st Century. Colin Moulding from XTC plays bass on the opening track, and also helping out are Fran King, Barry O'Brien, Keith Farrell and Tosh Flood (Pugwash). Recorded at his in-home studio, the album draws influences from many favorites. Starting with the richly melodic "Your Century" it has glowing background harmonies and driving bass line.  Followed by the flowing narrative of "Terry The Toad" it adds a great hook in the chorus, and "Crash Position" is a perfect example of modern Beach Boys pop, similar to Rick Gallego (Cloud Eleven).  These songs are not simple ear candy, but complex pop symphonies that don't rely on a straight formulaic approach. Every song on the album is a meticulous study in pop smarts from the Beatlesque touches of "Alien At Home" and "Horror Stories" to the wistful atmosphere of "Supermarket Dream."

PUGWASH "ALMANAC" on orange or white vinyl, LAST COPIES!! Get them here.

PUGWASH - "ALMANAC" (SUGARBUSH SB028), Pugwash' incredible 2nd album is released for the first time on vinyl. 250 copies on orange vinyl and 250 copies on white vinyl, so take your pick! They both look great. The converted will of course know what a classic this album is. For those who have never heard Pugwash, a snippet from one of the hundreds of reviews the band has received: "Thomas Walsh doesn’t like the term “powerpop” and has said that he considers Beatles comparisons to be “lazy”, but it would be difficult to imagine that people who dig the powerpop genre or are aficionados of the Fab Four wouldn’t be the ideal audience for Pugwash. Indeed, when watching the band live, McGee’s bass work sounds like he’s channeling McCartney at his most melodic and inventive. However, the band’s whole output is much more diverse and all-encompassing for them to be simply typecast as another bunch inspired by The Beatles. On your journey throughout this compilation, there will be more influences worn on their sleeves than you will be able to keep track of and I would hope that the listener will come to the same conclusion that I have; Thomas Walsh simply writes music that he would enjoy listening to." Get it now, one pressing only. £19.99 (On white or orange vinyl)

The Ptolemaic Terrascope have this to say about this classic album: 
" Originally released in 1999, ‘Almond Tea’ by Pugwash (not the former drummer of the Man band...) is brimming with sweet melody, the tunes reminding me of  ELO mixed with Radiohead, whilst some of the melodies suggest that time when Oasis wrote good songs that crawled under your skin. Opening with ‘Missing The Point’ the listener is immediately drawn into Pugwash's world and you find yourself drumming along to the tune whilst second guessing the lyrics (or maybe that is just me), the song having plenty of energy and a powerful production that allows it to soar from the speakers. Absolutely beautiful, ‘Finer Things In Life’ sounds like a Radiohead ballad, the lyrics catching hold of your heart as the music drift around them with a gentle jangle. With a lovely shuffle ‘Shine On Norvell Jefferson’ could have come straight from the White Album, the McCartney version, whilst ‘Two Wrongs’ could be a lost Brit Pop anthem its swagger tempered by the lovely ‘Getting Me Down Again’, the perfect end to side one. Throughout the album it is the song that is important and you can easily make comparisons, however the whole collection is a lesson in the art of melody and dynamics, the flow of the album perfectly judged with the melancholy beauty of ‘Always Be’ paired with the acoustic strum of ‘Could It Be The Same’ side two slowly getting louder until ‘Obvious’ releases the energy that was building, more Lennon than McCartney and definitely Psychedelic with phased guitar and plenty of attitude. Finally, ‘ Nonsense’ leads us out sounding like (pointless comparison time) like Dodgy covering a lost UK Psych tune, a great tune however your ears hear it completing another great album from Sugarbush, something I seem to be repeating in this review."

Spiritual music at its best, here set in an Acid-Folk context but as deep and honest as Roots Reggae was at exulting Rastafarianims back in the 70s. With shades of Comus, Incredible String Band, Roky Erickson and with lyrics spiritual and sincere in content. Played on a variety of unusual instruments - for western music that is - all their albums challenge and delight in equal measure. Sometimes disturbing yet with a definite beauty as well as melody and grace. Seriously limited editions will ensure that these great albums are the collectors' items of the future and simply great records for now.
