THE GRIP WEEDS "TRIP AROUND THE SUN" out on vinyl via Sugarbush.

THE GRIP WEEDS - "TRIP AROUND THE SUN" a new Sugarbush licensed album for sale for the first time in the UK. As expected, Trip Around The Sun once again showcases the Grip Weeds’ guitar virtuosity and powerhouse rhythm section, but the band’s melodic strengths win the day with their trademark harmony vocals. The sunshine pop opening track, “Vibrations”, is just that – very Cowsills; very warm, POP with capital letters and delicious arrangements; “I Like Her” is a little more sedate, with restraint on the verses (reminds me of a slightly dark variation on “Love Is All Around”), but then instantly jumping into a poppy, upbeat, sing-song chorus and “Casual Observer (To A Crime)” charges out and grabs at you in that big, rock-pop manner (think The Posies), punctuated with on-the-one horns – this a BIG track, if you know what I mean, and it’s outstanding.  “Truth Behind The Lie” breezes along at 100 m.p.h., kicking in with charging guitars and three part harmonies – this is what a band who has mastered the art of pop sounds like, pure and simple – the riffs, the nuanaces – all of it; “She Tries” is another vocal delight, fleshed with reverbed guitars and harmonies on the verses, clean guitar fills – and a wonderfully surprising brief harpsichord break and the album’s title track closes out this collection; “Trip Around The Sun” is bouncy, angular, joyful and just explodes right out of the speakers – it’s bold and powerful and a damned fine way to wrap up the proceedings.

GREEN PAJAMAS "ALL CLUES LEAD TO MEAGAN'S BED" deluxe expanded & remastered 2LP vinyl - out April 7th, pre order here! Free postage.

2LP GREEN PAJAMAS - "ALL CLUES LEAD TO MEAGAN'S BED" (SUGARBUSH SB059), a brand new 2lp set - deluxe edition - remastered - with bonus tracks - 140gm pressing in lined inners. Only 250 available, with no repress!

""Following on from their 1997 "return from the wilderness" album "Strung Behind the Sun", the Green Pajamas return with arguably their strongest album to date in "All Clues Lead to Meagan's Bed". There is no innocence here, the concerns are as often dark and ambiguous as they are elevated and joyous. On the flip side of delirious, celebratory treats like "The Secret of Her Smile" and "Queen of Sunshine" you'll find tales of obsession, psychic disturbance, madness and addiction like "Death By Poisoning", "Rattlesnake Kiss" and "The Laughing Horseman". The glowing mysticism of "Morning in Myra's Room" rises in the East like a pole star, eyes focussed inwards as infinity wheels around it, a drone symphony of guitars, keys, sitar and tabla, and yet another signifier of quiet greatness."

Witch Hazel - "Otherworldly" new release on Sugarbush Records buy it now, free postage. Amazing Metal / Stoner Hard Rock classic.

WITCH HAZEL - "OTHERWORLDLY" (Sugarbush SB058), brand new release of one of the finest ever Hard Rock / Stoner Metal abums of all time. Released in a tiny quantity of only 300 copes on vinyl this is bound to be a massive collectors' item.
 From the opening notes this killer album by this Pennsylvania group does not let up. Amazing Fuzz guitars envoking the finest ever peresented by BLACK SABBATH & BLUE CHEER. The lead vocals would give Ozzy or Paul DiAnno a run for their money. The rhtyhm section is rock solid. Best of all the songs are incredible, tough, well constructed and super-dynamic & exciting. From the opening track "Ghost & The Fly" through "Zombie Flower Bloom" this album does not let up. 

What I also love about it is that it crosses over and appeals to Heavy Psych fans as much as to Hard Rock ones. But don't take my word for it, have a listen or read some of the incredible reviews:

 "Witch Hazel have been impressing audiences for over a decade with their brand of Hard Rock that's rooted in the 1970's - has everything from gang choruses to quiet Psych to Hard Rock" (Doug Sheppard, Shindig Mag)

 The fact that this album had not been licensed for release on vinyl is simply staggering, so glad we got it.
