GREEN PAJAMAS - "PHANTOM LAKE: NORTHERN GOTHIC 3 (SOUND EFFECT RECORDS, Greece import) 
Phantom Lake: Northern Gothic 3 is, in many ways, a prototypical Green Pajamas album – full of gently acidic melodies, soulfully plainspoken singing and lyrics haunted by ghosts real and imagined. But, as with all “Northern Gothic” branded releases, there’s something special at work here The band is on fire here. “Lisa Lou” and “The Rosebergs” continue the PJs’ tradition of sharp pop songs, while “The Shepard Well” and “Red Bird” does the same for folk rock. “Ana (All the Way Down),” “Monica Talks to Angels” and “Amy’s Gonna Take You Down” feature some of the group’s toughest rock songs ever, with catchy tunes enhanced by steely guitar fills. The Green Pajamas rarely miss and this is a work of genius!

TWINK - "THINK PINK 3" (Vincebus Eruptum Records, Italy import - pink vinyl),
After creating a sequel to his fantastic 1969 album ‘Think Pink‘ in 2015, Twink decided to create a third instalment in the series. ‘Think Pink III’ is brimming with ideas that make the album sound fresh and invigorating, as well as having fantastic guitar playing throughout. This is a record that knows how to pull the listener in, and to keep them there until every second of it has finished.
Take a song such as “Lydia Ladybird” for example. With Twink’s stutter induced chorus, echo filled verses, and a melody to die for, the song takes the listener on a trip into wonderland, with no tolls in sight. There is also the vocally hypnotic “Fountain” which contains compulsively intriguing backing vocals that are an excellent companion to Twink’s own vocals. It finishes with a dynamite guitar part that could have gone on for an eternity and nobody would complain.

VELVET CRUSH - "Free Expression", Among power-pop's truest believers, Ric Menck is a visionary and a scholar, a brilliant pilgrim on a lifetime quest to understand and master that inscrutable fusion of allure, insight and energy that yields the most sublime melodic devotionals to the grand wizards of the two-minute single: Brian Wilson, Alex Chilton, Roger McGuinn, Ray Davies, Pete Townshend, Phil Spector, etc. That he has sought to do so from behind a small drum kit rather than with a guitar or piano only heightens the intensity of the Illinois native's efforts, sharpens the clarity of his perspective. Where other auteurs have found easy creative satisfaction in the imitation of some obvious aspect of their icons' formulae, Menck — who can both sing and play guitar but rarely does either in public — demonstrates a keener, deeper obsession with the zen of pop.

Daniel McGeever - "Cross The Water", Sugarbush's very own WELLGREEN man makes solo LP, a beatifully produced Scottish Pop gem. The opener “Julia” builds a mid-tempo love song that recalls Elton John or Paul McCartney with a chorus brimming with sweet harmonies. The emotional appeal of McGeever’s music also reminds me of Graham Gouldman or Gilbert O’ Sullivan. The album starts out hopeful, “Life’s A Game” has McGeever belt out the chorus, and it leads to the wistful “Wedding Day,” with its nostalgic feel. On tracks like “Return” the piano takes on a slight baroque quality, but as the album continues the compositions are more classical folk like “For Violet.”

Most of the album is love balladry, but the best romantic gem here is “Our Love Will Remain” and McGeever’s double-tracked harmonies are especially good. “It’s Not Over All Yet” finishes our story with a six-minute epic Billy Joel meets David Gates flourish, dramatically stating “in the face of adversity there is always a little hope.” A great romantic album that stands up to multiple listens, and highly recommended.

DANIEL MCGEEVER Cross The Water



SMART PATROL - "OVERAGE UNDERACHIEVERS", another volume in our long running "Special Imports" series! These four guys from Munich joined forces to fuse classic songwriting of the sixties with the sound, power and attitude characteristic of the music revolution of 1976-1978 and this resulted in 12 one-of-a kind powerpop gems wrapped in a tailor-made suit of hooks and melodies on their new LP "Overage Underachievers".
But don't mistake them to be retro: they all started out in punk-influenced bands, so in the end they've only gone back to their roots, or as they sing in their tribute to Munich's Atomic Cafe: "It's time to get back to basics"
So what you get here is an album packed with perfect shots of power poppin' 70's mod-punk that would be all over the radio in an ideal world. If you dig the CHORDS, the INCREDIBLE KIDDA BAND, the POINTED STICKS, the PLIMSOULS, the YUM YUMS and KURT BAKER then you will dig this album. £19.99 including postage anywhere.

LUNAR LAUGH - "MAMA'S BOY", The Lunar Laugh combine elements of power pop and folk rock with their signature harmonies on their much anticipated second album, Mama’s Boy. The Oklahoma City-based trio is lead by the singer/songwriter duo of Connor Anderson and Jared Lekites, assisted by Campbell Young. The title track opens with a catchy chorus about “just another kid from the suburbs” growing up without a father.
Memorable tracks include “Living A Lie” that has a distinct Harry Nilsson influence with a sweet guitar break and “Take A Little Time” layers strings on top of an epic melody. The entire album stands up well to repeat listens and makes this one. Highly Recommended. Buy it now:

DAVID BROOKINGS - "A KING WITHOUT A THRONE", this great album shows Brookings’ admirable restraint, and make clear his intention to keep the focus on the songs themselves, adding only what is needed, always in service of the song. Brookings has been working his way west: originally from Richmond V.A., he moved to Memphis – a fertile musical ground if there ever was one – where he cut a trio of albums in the legendary Sun Studio. Eventually landing in California, the singer/guitarist put together a band and continued to record and perform. "A king without a throne" once again showcases his knack for composing straightforward tunes that nicely balance pop and rock: not too noisy, never too sweet, but always hitting the musical sweet spot.

THE PARSONS RED HEAD - "IN A HAZY DREAM", Their albums have been produced by the likes of Mitch Easter (early R.E.M producer), Chris Stamey (The dBs), and Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5), and there's a very simple reason that this trio of jangle kings have been involved; the Parson Red Heads' Evan Way writes absolutely knock-your-socks-off songs, and sings them with total conviction. "Seven Years Ago" effortlessly brushes aside anything by much more high profile heartbreak-country-janglers like Band of Horses. Buy it now:

ANTON BARBEAU - "MAGIC ACT", another record in our "Special Imports Series" (IMP013). Says Anton "I've got a new album in the works called Magic Act. 12 pop songs of varying psychedelic decree. Some of these songs were written for the third Three Minute Tease album. TMT is my erstwhile UK band with former Soft Boys/Egyptians Andy Metcalfe and Morris Windsor. A sudden case of "artistic differences" meant a change in course and I found myself making a solo record all over the place with all sorts of people. Colin Moulding from XTC played bass on one track, Martin Gordon from Sparks on another. Karla Kane from the Corner Laughers sent vocal tracks from her laptop to my Dropbox, while Allyson Seconds and Larry Tagg came to my dad's house in Sacramento for cups of tea and tracking. "You've got to start out or end up in the same room at some point, hopefully." It's important for me to have that "in the room" connection with the people I make music with, but this record was made as much online as anywhere. While Morris did come to Berlin for one session, a week later he was recording with Pat Collier in London with me producing via Skype. I never sing about the Internet or mobile phones or pretty much any aspect of our very tech-rich lives, but this album is as anti-luddite as can be."
