PUGWASH - "ELEVEN MODERN ANTIQUITIES" (SUGARBUSH SB084), finally released on vinyl. The only PUGWASH album not yet to be released on wax IS OUT NOW! This is available in two colours, 250 copies each. (Black vinyl and splatter vinyl)

"‘Eleven Modern Antiquities’ is a perfect power pop album, with a dazzling array of guest musicians, including Andy Partridge & Dave Gregory of XTC (Andy co-writes two tracks with leader Thomas Walsh), Neil Hannon of The Divine comedy, Michael Penn, Jason Falkner, The Section Quartet and Nelson Bragg of The Brian Wilson Band. The result is an amazingly awesome pop sound and best described by reviewer Alan Haber, “Walsh is a pop pundit who fuels his ideas with his deep-seated love of the pop form, whose admiration of the classic pop sound brought forth by bands like the Move and the Electric Light Orchestra and XTC knows no bounds.." (Powerpopaholic review)

THE INSEKTLIFE CYCLE - "SPECTACLE OF DREAMS" (SUGARBUSH SB080), just a quick note to tell you that we have signed up this great band for their first vinyl proper long playing LP, a reissue of the previously CD-only album SECTACLE OF DREAMS in a new sleeve design. Coming from the other side of the world, This is a Psychedelic Rock group from the Philippines. Made up of members from different metal bands, and it is interesting to see these musicians playing something totally different, and being incredible at it. The album is an instrumental record that’s equal parts Psychedelic, Progressive, and Hard Rock, and the interesting and inspired use of colourful guitar effects  gives the album a trippy space vibe that also reminds me of German bands such as Guru Guru. This band have really gotten Psych and Prog collectors excited with the innovative and unique blens of Progressive & Psychedelic Guitar-led Instrumental Music. Shades also of Zappa, Vand Der Graaf, Davie Allen & The Arrows, Dick Dale and Black Sabbath and about a hundred more make up the influences on their truly unique sound. This record will be limited to ONLY 200 copies and is expected to sell out soon!

COSMIC ROUGH RIDERS - "PANORAMA" (SUGARBUSH SB800)
This wonderful album finally saw it's long overdue vinyl release back in 2014 - thought to be completely sold out (an it HAS been deleted) I have found a batch more in our Sugarbush warehouse. So here is another chance to grab a copy of this wonderful Scottish Jangle pop classic.

 When initially released on CD it was so well received that ALAN MCGEE signed the band to his POPTONES label. A classic Scottish record that is full of melody, great harmonies and 12-string Rickenbackers. Every song on this album is a winner. 

This from the ACTIVE LISTENER WEBSITE: When it was originally released back in 2000, the Cosmic Rough Riders second album "Panorama" had the cream of the U.K music press (Uncut, Q, Mojo etc.) falling over themselves to announce its brilliance.

A Scottish band with a convoluted personnel history (let's just say that singer / songwriter Daniel Wylie basically is the Cosmic Rough Riders), on their second album they added a whole bunch of sunny California and West Coast to their melodic Teenage Fanclub jangle, with Wylie writing the best songs of his career (although his subsequent solo career has been pretty flash too).

There's an immediate appeal to these songs that makes it easy to see why they were tagged the "next big thing", but harder to work out why they didn't stick in the public consciousness of the time. Certainly the open adoption of the vintage sixties influences on display here was unusual for the time, and may have been enough to confuse the casual punter into buying the latest Travis album instead, but tracks like "Revolution (In The Summertime)" and "You've Got Me" tick all of the right catchy and melodic boxes to be players on radio, and there's plenty of depth beyond the surface level hooks;  "Afterglow" dabbles in alt. country harmonies more effectively than anything you'll hear this side of the Jayhawks, but it's "The Gun Isn't Loaded" which packs the biggest punch with its spot on Eastern psychedelia easily recapturing and redefining "Within You Without You" for a contemporary audience.

BHOPAL'S FLOWERS - "ALSTROEMERIA: A Journey On Earth & Beyond" (SUGARBUSH SB079), this amazing 2Lp set is out soon on vinyl on Sugarbush. Limited to only 200 copies. Presed on deluxe 140 gram vinyl this is available from Sugarbush.

From Canada, BHOPAL'S FLOWERS fuse deep 60s Psychedelia with Indian sounds of Sitar. Influenced by Psych heavyweights such as MUSIC EMPORIUM, REIGN GHOST, THE DAVID, COMMON PEOPLE this is one of the finest modern Psychedelic albums I have heard. 

"...this 2LP set recalls 1960s psychedelia but not overtly so, and the trippy hippy elements don’t bury the melodies. The sitars have a hypnotic quality and the band’s style shifts enough to keep you engaged, like “Tomorrow’s Heroes” adds plenty of hooks to all that jangling guitar. This is a long player with 16 tracks, and while the sunshine is one half, the darker themes come out on the second half. Plenty of standouts here too, with “What About You” and the slinky “A Night At The Devachan.” High-quality arrangements are everywhere, and it ends with a cover of Cream’s “I Feel Free.” A MAJOR trip and Highly Recommended." (Powerpopaholic review)

Pre order now! In stock June 5th 2021. Please note difference in costs for Uk delivery and overseas shipping (EU, US, Japan and elswhere), 2 options to choose from - also we declare a value of £8.00 per Lp for overseas shipping.

DELETED WAVEFORM GATHERINGS - "COMPLICATED VIEW" (SUGARBUSH SB078), a long overdue vinyl pressing (145 copies only!) of this amazing 2006 album, prior only available on CD! Norwegian Pop Maverick Oyvind Holm's band laid down this - their very first album - with a hell of a lot of gusto and passion. Spanning 70s Glam Rock, Psychedelia and Intelligent Art-Pop this is one of the most interesting releases we have had the pleasure of offering you. Not a million miles in sound and attitude to ORGONE BOX' seminal 2001 album "Confectionery" (reissued on Sgarbush as "Confectionary" in 2020). COTTON MATHER'S debut album is also an ever present ghost over proceedings here. This is not in any way to mean that this album is derivative at all -  it is clever, cool and very melodic tough Pop with great vocals (move over again, Mr. Lennon!). Plenty of suprises abound, a breathy flute here a Fender Rhodes there but always the ringing guitars take the lead. A lovely, cohesive record which - finally - sees the light of day on vinyl, which is how it should always have been but I guess the late 90s and early 00's were not as enlightened as we are now, or something! In terms of pressing quantity we - once again - went for exclusivity, or in other words - we didn't press many! 199 copies only exist with a chunk going to Oyvind's own archives so you can battle for the few copies that remain on offer to the public (less than 150?). Pressed, as ever, on lovely 140gm vinyl and sealed disc outside cover for posting safety. Only £26.99 (UK) £29.99 (Elsewhere) inc. postage! (A bargain). Please choose the correct postage here:

ORGONE BOX - "CONFECTIONARY" (SUGARBUSH SB069), back in stock after last year's black vinyl micro pressing sold out in two weeks or so this issue is on gorgeous transluscent GREEN VINYL! So much has been written about this classic album which was originally released in Japan in 1996. Sheffield native Rick Corcoran, after playing in Sugarbush Records' band THE SILENT BLUE from 1990 to 1991 took off on his own and formed ORANGE who hat a hit in 1994 with the classic Britpop jangler "JUDY OVER THE RAINBOW". 

Sessions at Rockfield with Gus Dudgeon for an album on Chrysalis then collapsed in a haze of hash smoke and overspending. Rick then got a deal in Japan and was given an advance to record this album. It was issued in Japan (only) in 1996 and then - via a strange route (involving former bandmate Tam Johnstone, son of Elton John's Davey Johstone who played in both Silent Blue and also on the Orgone Box album) - was released by my old mate Bill Forsyth via his Minus Zero record shop. It then hit the Psych / Pop world with a crash and over 4000 copies sold, making this the album of the year (or decade) on numerous lists in 2001. To say this has become a cult album is an understatement. This record DEFINES cult album! Shades of Beatles, Guided By Voices, The Kinks and Cheap Trick (after a heavy dose of LSD!) this incredible record even guided and defined COTTON MATHER'S KONTIKI which was released shortly after. This edition is of only 200 copies which will, I promise, become sought after collector's items in a few years time.

On 140gm GREEN VINYL and sealed. Buy it now. (Note slightly different postage rates for Uk and outside UK!)

GREEN PAJAMAS - "TEN WHITE STONES" (SUGARBUSH SB076),
finally this classic (previously CD-only) 2004 album is released on vinyl. Featuring a brand new Suzanne Kelly painted sleeve and pressed on lovely v140gm vinyl, this - once again - is a wonderful new release on our label. With a mcuch darker and heavier feel, this records, while retaining Jeff Kelly's gift for melody and a great hook, does remind me a lot of Crazy Horse on records such as EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS IS NOWHERE. The album highlights Kelly's much underrated guita playing and I do wonder why ot more has been made of this in the past by other reviewers. His playing is inventive, melodic and unpredictable -much like his songwriting. As our friends at Popmatters.com put it back it when this was first released: "The Green Pajamas exist in a place where music meets art. That is not to say that they affect a self-consciously important attitude. This is the organic definition, the one where art is, at its essence, a mode of expression for the human race. What the band does, and has done for two decades now, is craft gorgeous songs that convey a particular mood. They build slow and strong melodies and surround them with breathing, meandering guitar lines. The lyrics betray the world: loneliness and frustration but also love and hope. It's the crafting that is important and the Green Pajamas never forget it. They bring us this art in a determined way, by still being vibrant after so many years and reflecting the nature of their own universe. The fact that they can pull this off in a possibly disastrous live-in-the-studio format only further attests to their hard work and sincerity."

Limited to only 250 copies on deluxe 140gm vinyl. Remastered from the original recordings by Tom Dyer.  Buy it here now - free postage (please note UK/Europe postage & USA / Rest Of The World postage rates below)

PUGWASH - "JOLLITY" (SUGARBUSH SB075 & 075P
),
Thomas Walsh has been kind and wise enough (!) to let Sugarbush release the vinyl of Pugwash' classic 3rd album. If you dug ALMANAC or ALMOND TEA which we released some years ago, you'll flip over this! To say this is a masterpiece is not over the top, for once. This record is superb and, in my opinion, right at the top of what we have released over 75 releases. It is hard to fault this record and I won't, because I'd be doing everyone a disservice. Rarely have I heard a more perfect album. 

"All told, Jollity is a rich compendium of aural excellence that continues the musical legacy being built by Walsh as Pugwash. These eleven compositions are gorgeously arranged and meticulously executed, weaving layers of musical nuance into delicately infectious ballads of love and reflection." (Read the whole review here: POPMATTERS review)

8x8 - "New Data New Day" (Sugarbush SB074),
a brand new album by Sugarbush legends 8x8! Limited to only 100 copies on vinyl NEW DATA NEW DATA is another records which will thrill fans of cleverly constructed Beach Boysian Art-Pop. "

The prolific Lane Steinberg and Alexander Khodchenko continue to craft a dense weave of melodic richness on a bed of psychedelic textures. Never predictable, Lane launches into the standout tracks immediately with the rich piano, organ and woven harmonies of the title track and the catchy psychedelic fuzz of “Papa’s Garage.”

However, after those songs, the album slows considerably. “Racing To The Sun” is a fine exercise in restraint, as the melody is sparse but compelling. Other tracks don’t stick out as well, but Lane manages to describe milieus perfectly. On “Bye, Bye Landslide,” we visit a shifty carnival or on “Bernard’s Dilemma” its barbeque time in hell. Musically Alex is able to let loose on “Hidden In Plain Sight” and “Absolutely Hypnotized” with its swirling psychedelic guitar riffs. Overall a very good album that makes you want more. Highly Recommended." (from Powepopaholic.com review)

JEFF KELLY (of Green Pajamas) - "When The World Was Younger" (Sugarbush SB072)
,
limited to around 100 copies on vinyl, this is a sure fire rarity right off the bat. The latest solo outing from Seattle's Green Pajamas mainman is another classic album. Kelly has said that he hopes that this album “is a little bit of something to help momentarily distract the senses, heal the heavy heart and uplift the spirit.”.  In trying to find his own way through these troubling times he has done just that for himself and anyone wishing to find a musically soothing escape from our daily reality. 

This record is a bit of a continuation from last year’s Beneath the Skies, Under the River. Again, like that record, both Spain and Portugal are the main inspiration here, but this 12-song set it a bit of a hodge podge (not in a bad way, though). There’s four new songs as well as a few remakes of older songs and four singles, too. First cut “Of Missingness” has some of that wonderful flamenco -style guitar while the dusty “Black Eyes” has a bit of a Southwestern Giant Sand/Calexico feel to it. There a new version of an old song called “Autumn in Lisbon” which has swaying beat to it while things get smoky on the mysterious “Only Endless Tomorrows” and the record  ends with a lovely, acoustic version of “Christina Dancing”, Kelly’s tribute to flamenco dancer Christina Hoyos. As Kelly himself said, “The album is very nostalgic and about “missingness” and of longing for another place and time when the world was younger. We could all do with a little of that right now. £27.99 with free postage anyway. 100 copies only.
