JOHN HOWARD - "KID IN A BIG WORLD" & "THE HIDDEN BEAUTY 1972-1979", Originally released in 1975, promoted fiercely if briefly, the album wasn’t picked up by radio or backed by any tour, and thus disappeared. Now it’s resurfaced on the dansette in my bedroom. It’s such a perfect record, both of and out of its time. It’s further proof that there are other realities, other worlds concurrent to this one. A world where on being booted out of Roxy Music, Brian Eno drifted into vagrancy. Where Elton John never got past session work, where Marilyn Monroe settled down with Sammy Davis Jnr and lived happily ever after. The second album is a collection of unreleased recordings from 1973- 1979. Each £19.99 with free posage, please select which copy you would like here:

SOFT HEARTED SCIENTISTS - "TAKE TIME TO WONDER IN A WHIRLING WORLD", Wales' Soft Hearted Scientists take the refreshing route of pushing their psychedelic rock influences into pop music. Even though their music ppears slightly old-hat and whimsical, this semi-trippy record has a lot going for it thanks to its memorable tunes. The enticingly-named 'The A470 Song' begins the journey with Spacemen 3-like droning and a vocal that is part narration, part-singing. Its slightly dark theme proves to be the exception to the rule. 'I Wanted You' is a jolly little number, 'Light Years To Nothing' is a hopeful song with a fine key change for the chorus and the harmonies on 'Meet Me At The Milky Way' suggest The Fifth Dimension have reformed! £19.99 with free postage.

OG Musique- "OUT OF THE DARKNESS", mega rare modern Acid-Folk album, only 150 copies on vinyl, Out Of The Darkness tells the story of Imma, a young goddess trapped in the Rounded Forest because she threatened the supremacy of Moloch on the World of Men. Initiated by the Snake King and the animals of the forest, she will find joy, wisdom and compassion but also magic, trickery and illusion, the astral secrets and the science of Numbers. At the end of her initiation, she will be knighted and guided to the Tree-Ear where she will cross the Darkness to re-enchant the world.
A collection of 14 illustrated songs inspired by the drawings of Wayne Anderson.
"The lavish gatefold sleeve features Wayne's astonishing fairytale-esque surreal art on the front and inner panels, making for one of the most striking examples of album packaging I have seen in a long while. (...) The tracks here draw from diverse influences whilst holding together as a cohesive album, the music perfectly complementing the amazing artwork. (...) A greatly impressive album both musically and visually; highly recommended!" Bliss/Aquamarine (2016). £24.99 including postage.

SIDEWALK SOCIETY - "STRANGE ROADS",  Sidewalk Society have done a unique and beautiful reworking of the complete album by Mod God 1960’s band The Action. Strange Roads is released on gold vinyl and has brought to life the half finished album and which was turned down by Parlophone Records back in the 1960’s. Almost 50 years later Sidewalk Society release Strange Roads on Fruits De Mer records. Each song has been beautifully crafted, adding a sophistication to the songs whilst bringing a newly encrusted Beatles/Beach Boy type sound to each song. You can picture George Martin bringing this kind of clean and polished sound to each song if he was left to craft the original songs in Abbey Road. Sidewalk Society have been working on this tribute to the legendary band The Action for a long time – and it’s a classic – a true labour of love. £19.99 with free postage.

THE GALILEO 7 - "STARING AT THE SOUND",  Allan Crockford is a name that may not be immediately familiar to you, but the bands he's played with ; the Prisoners, The Solarflares, The James Taylor Quartet, Thee Headcoats - will presumably ring a few bells.
A veteran of the Medway scene, he's served an admirable apprenticeship playing in these bands ( and plenty of others ), but the Galileo 7 proves that he's much more than a first call sideman. As an outlet for Crockford's songs the Galileo 7 is atypical of what we've come to expect from the Medway sound - there's certainly a dash of punkish energy that makes it's presence felt every now and then, especially on "The Man Who Wasn't There", but more often than not it's shot through a vintage psychedelic prism with the likes of "Staring at the Sound" and "Anne Hedonia" being prime Brit-Psych nuggets with instantly memorable melodies which fans of mod-psych outfits like the Action and the Syn will obsessively salivate over. £19.99 including postage.

BALDUIN - "BOHEMIAN GARDEN", very seldom does a modern artist capture ones imagination in the same manner as Swiss popsike warlock Balduin has with his upcoming release, ‘Bohemian Garden’. Due to be unleashed in October, Baldiun’s magnum opus wears its luminous sixties influences proudly like a DayGlo tattoo sleeve, yet achieves a unique atmosphere, something all too uncommon for modern day purveyors of psychedelia. The album represents one of those strange and rare instances where a vast smorgasbord of disparate sounds and ideas mesh together seemingly with absolute harmony. £19.99 on vinyl including postage.

THE LORDS OF THYME - "PELLETS",  the new album by this modern band influenced by the dark melodies of traditional British folk music and the sounds of  late-sixties psychedelic electric groups, with special care on the arrangements.
For fans of folk or psychedelic music, Pellets, should be at the top of your ‘to listen to’ list. Despite obvious influences from the likes of Pentangle to Fotheringay, they are not a pastiche of what has been done before; they have their own signature style and a unique personality regarding arrangements.
£19.99 on vinyl including postage.

DANIEL WYLIE (COSMIC ROUGH RIDERS) - "THE BEST OF THE SOLO YEARS", Daniel  got back into having his records issued on vinyl when we released COSMIC ROUGH RIDERS' PANORAMA Lp a few years ago. I think he must have enjoyed that because in the past 12 months he has had two more albums released on wax: this one and also "Chrome Cassettes". This nice Lp covers some of his finest work of the past 12 years and, of course, delivers what you would expect from such a big talent. Honest, heartfelt and well crafted music - recorded and played immaculately as he always does. Buy it now:

With free postage!

DANIEL WYLIE'S COSMIC ROUGH RIDERS -  "SCENERY FOR DREAMERS",
Wylie never tried to cover up the influences that can be heard in his music - Big Star, early R.E.M., Beach Boys, Neal Young, even Steely Dan. All of those can easily be heard here too. Listening to the opener “Rope (Everybody Lies)” and a bit later on to “Cold Alaska”, you can be even fooled that it is not Neil Young guesting on the lead guitar. And then come in those harmonies that Wylie has been known for from the start and those he can really be proud of because they can be ranked among the best around today. And with “I Hear You Calling My Name” as well as throughout this album Wylie just confirms that he is one of the currently not recognized pop craftsmen around, that can easily be ranked with the likes of late Chris Bell of Big Star.
What he shows on the perfectly titled Scenery for Dreamers is that if you really know how to incorporate all your influences the right way, you can come up with some engaging and perfectly listenable music. Good to see Wylie and his Cosmic Rough Riders back. Buy it now:

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.

KEN SHARP - "MY FAVOURITE SONGBOOK", lovely USA guitar based powerpop by this very accomplished writer and performer! Buy it now: 
THE PARSONS READ HEAD - "BLURRED HARMONY", if you have never heard them imagine that at some point in 1968 The Byrds had passed on the Gram Parsons option and enlisted Rich Wright and Dave Gilmour from the Syd-less Floyd. Sure they jangle away like the best of them, but there’s an atmosphere, an airiness, an expansiveness that is almost unique. Opener Hazy Dream does a much better job introducing their sounds than my words. A spacey intro gives way to gently guitar jangle and a gorgeous brittle melody. Then rather than return to the rather wonderful chorus it sneaks out to an unexpected and unusual outro. Clever stuff. Buy it now:

Parsons Red Heads - Blurred Harmony

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:

ANDY REED - "AN INTRODUCTION TO ANDY REED", another LP in our "Special Imports" series (IMP 018), another fantastic USA (Detroit area) Power Pop gem from Andy Reed who, when not playing with NICK PIUNTI or CHRIS RICHARDS, has recorded a really great album. We have a few copies on offer and anyone who is a fan of NICK PIUNTI, LEGAL MATTERS or CHIRS RICHARDS & THE SUBTRACTIONS will really like this LP.

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."



ANTON BARBEAU LP




COSMIC ROUGH RIDERS - "CHROME CASSETTES" (single LP, free postage anywhere), another volume in our "Special Imports Series" (IMP009).
The album is chock full of power pop, psych, and folk goodness, replete with chiming guitars, stunning harmonies, and all the best elements of these genres that a fan would expect. The opening salvo, "Yesterday's a Waste of Time" is six and a half minutes of blistering power pop and a searing guitar solo from Johnny Smillie. The beautiful "A Beautiful Sunrise" starts out like a long lost Love song, before meandering into Jose Gonzalez territory, with gorgeously plucked guitar and a sterling vocal. "I'm Out of My Mind" is upbeat, sunshine pop (can anyone say hit?), while "Misty Dreamer" is more downtempo and contemplative. "Dark Forest" slides into your senses, entrancing you with its inviting main melody in waltz tempo. Fuzzed out guitar joins the acoustic guitar and leads you out on a high note. "You're Predictable" has an in your face melodic punch with a psych backdrop, leading into the Byrdsian pleasure of "Another Wasted Day". If this is your cup of tea, then you'll be delighted not only with this song but the entire record. There are hints of many 60s and 70s artists, but Wylie puts an original spin on what could be a tired genre with extremely well-written and played songs, coupled with a really great voice. "Some Great Messages" slips into autumnal folk territory, a realm which Wylie should visit more often as he does this so well. "I Follow You Home" sews together exquisitely crafted melodies with great harmony vocals. "I Should Disappear" closes the album and marries psych folk elements seamlessly together.



Cosmic Rough Riders - Chrome Cass.




RENO BO - "LESSONS FROM A SHOOTING STAR" (single LP, free postage anywhere), another volume in our "Special Imports Series" (IMP008).
After spending most of his career performing and touring with the Mooney Suzuki, Albert Hammond Jr. (the Strokes), Caitlin Rose and Andrew Combs, Reno Bo decided to make this his breakout effort; doing almost everything on his own. Reno appeared as a solo artist in 2010, but this year he's blown away all expectations with his newest Lessons From A Shooting Star. From the pounding beat and swirling chords of "Sweetheart Deal" its chock full of catchy power pop. "And I Know She Did" is a shimmering Big Star like ballad and "The Brighter Side" co-written by Brendan Benson sounds like the best song Matthew Sweet didn't write. "Sleeping Sun" is a standout piano based melody with a big pinch of Beatles, as well as the wondrous Pysch-pop closer "Somewhere There's Something." In fact, each song is a home run and this album clearly hits the top of my top ten list this year. I don't award an album a "10" rating lightly, but Reno Bo deserves it. Essential listening.



Reno Bo-Lessons



BLUE ASH - "HEARTS AND ARROWS" (2LP set with bonus 7" single, sealed copy), another volume in our "Special Imports Series" (IMP007).
Blue Ash was an early Power-Pop band from Youngstown that formed in 1969.
The group's style was a wonderful blend of Brit Invasion elements (think Beatles, Kinks, Hollies, Who, Small Faces...) and west-coast folk-rock in the vein of The Byrds and Beau Brummels. This album is a selection of 28 tracks from a legacy of 219 demo cuts. Some of those tracks ended up as part of their official LPs, this amazing 2LP set also features a bonus 7 " EP with 4 acoustic tracks. Very limited with us and sure to sell out very quickly!
