THE GREEK THEATRE - "WHEN SEASONS CHANGE" (SUGARBUSH SB064). Their amazing 3rd album already mooted to be the album of the year 2019. An incredible album of West Coast inflected guitar Psychedelia. In a limitaed edition of under 300 copies on vinyl with no repress.

"... a sumptuous, cinematic-style panorama all in all, that shows The Greek Theatre to be a very capable group who, whilst in thrall to some of the great sounds that’ve gone down in the past have more than a keen sense of pushing forward and carving out space to create their own individuality, their experimentalism too very much succeeding with this, at times, totally astonishing latest effort."
(c. Psychedelicbabymag.com)
Pressed on 140gm Audiophile vinyl, in single sleeve , sealed with disc outside main cover. Disc in lined inner for extra protection.
Pre order your copy now at only £22.99  which includes free shipping. But hurry, not too many copies left now.
"No, ladies and gentlemen, we are not floating in space. Rather, the haunting "Sail Away (Part Two)" reminds us that we are still "lost at sea", where this strange and magical journey all began, not drifting in the firmament, rather looking up at it, with the sun shining warmly on our faces in the daytime, but with the "nights getting cold" as the seasons change. They've managed to accomplish the near-impossible. That is to say, they've raised the already high bar that their relatively short career has already set. This, my friends, is a bona fide masterpiece." (Kent Whirlow, Terrascope review)

THE GREEN RAY - "FIVE POINTS OF LIGHT" (SUGARBUSH RECORDS SB063), a brand new release on Sugarbush! The second album we have released by the legendary GREEN RAY, with roots in legendary UK bands HELP YOURSELF & MAN.

After releasing the incredible 'Half Sentences' in 2017 their last album with the late Richard Treece and after the sudden passing of long time friend & bassist Jeff Gibbs, the band recruited Dave Mackenzie and continued gigging and working on the new recordings. Completed in the summer of 2019, 'Five Points Of Light' features Jeff on the songs 'Small Springs' & 'Before The Fall', as well as guest contributions from Howard 'Plug' Davies (The Attack, Screaming Lord Sutch) & also Duncan Kerr & Wayne Worrell (Plummet Airlines, The Favourites, The Brainiac 5). After summer 2019 gigs with very special guests Barry Melton of Country Joe & The Fish & noted French Guitarist Stephane Missri, the band continues to appear at The Brainiac 5's London residency, at The Gunners, Finsbury Park.

A lovely album full of stinging and Psychedelic San Francisco - tinged guitar that John Cippolina would have been proud of this is one incredible Uk / West Coast Hippy - Psych gem.

The Green Ray

GREEN PAJAMAS - "POISON IN THE RUSSIAN ROOM" (SUGARBUSH SB062), amazing long lost previously CD-only cult album by Seattle's amazing GREEN PAJAMAS is out finally on vinyl.
 Listen here!

"Nobody likes to throw around terms like “criminally underappreciated” and “under the radar” more than rock critics, but it’s impossible to talk about the Green Pajamas without bringing those hoary old terms into play. Singer/songwriter Jeff Kelly has been leading the Seattle-based band since 1984 (not counting an early-’90s sabbatical during which he worked as a solo artist), turning out an endless stream of enchanting albums that feed on the spirit of ’60s psychedelia but always remain decidedly contemporary. The Pajamas are the kind of band that has long seemed ripe for a renaissance, maybe some flavor-of-the-moment artist going public with a deep Pajamas fixation, the sort of thing that would lend the group some hip cache. But it never seems to happen. After all these years, they remain, to use another well-worn phrase, a well-kept secret." (Prefix Mag)
Limited to only 300 copies, on 140gm virgin audiophile vinyl - remastered - sealed with disc housed outside the cover and in lined inner sleeve for extra protection. Pressed on green vinyl!  Only £19.99 including postage anywhere!




 




JEFF KELLY / GREEN PAJAMAS "BENEATH THE STARS, ABOVE THE RIVER" (SUGARBUSH SB061), a rare solo album from the Green Pajamas main man Jeff Kelly. Out on vinyl on Sugarbush Records!

Listen here!

"Kelly delivers these songs with an intimacy which brings them home and also propels others with convincing pop-rock (the guitar jangle Senor Senor which revert back to the greatness of Green Pajamas and Moon Over Granada touches the spirit of a more gritty Tom Petty ) or move towards a dreamy Mediterranean heat (Hush of the Southern Night).

Here,with musical influences from the Iberian Peninsula, his acute storytelling (Todo por la Gitana) and these sophisticated, poetic songs where he played just about every instrument himself, Jeff Kelly once again confirms he is a rare writer . . . especially when it now comes to wine, women and Spain."
Limited to only 300 copies, on 140gm virgin audiophile vinyl - remastered - sealed with disc housed outside the cover and in lined inner sleeve for extra protection. Only £19.99 including postage anywhere!

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."

Help Yourself

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. 

Pressed on virgin 140gm vinyl. Disc is housed in soft traced inner sleeve for extra protection and sealed OUTSIDE the main cover to ensure safe transit.

TRENT MILLER - "TIME BETWEEN US" (SUGARBUSH SB056), Trent Miller releases his new album - a fusion of folk, rock, goth and americana that continues to attract a growing following. The closest thing you will get to a blend of GENE CLARK (I swear his voice is touched by the ghost of Gene), latter day BYRDS as well as Paisley Underground stalwarts THIN WHITE ROPE & AMERCIAN MUSIC CLUB this is one album you really need to listen to. A magical blend of Alt. Country Byrds laden melancholia and West Coast pedal-steel drenched hallowed ground only trodden by those truly gifted,

Time Between Us carries on the trajectory set by its predecessor, the acclaimed Burnt Offerings (2014), which saw him emerging from the darkness that overshadowed his first two albums Cerberus (2009) and Welcome To Inferno Valley (2011), towards a hopeful glimmer on the horizon and a new maturity in songwriting.

An expanded 2LP set, with extra tracks, housed in a beautiful and higly detailed deluxe gatefold sleeve. Pressed on virgin 140gm vinyl.. This amazing album sound stunning on vinyl, Over 80 minutes of incredible music on vinyl. Only 300 pressed with only 250 commercially available. Out in late September, but listen here now:
Green Pajamas Strung Behind The Sun stream 

Musically, to me, this is the best Green Pajamas album we have released, it's quality of songwriting and playing is simply magnificent.
Original release date: August 15, 1997 by Camera Obscura, Australia.

"With its Art Tatum shuffle, ghostly imagery and Middle East-meets-Middle England vibe, it's as fleeting and special as a dream about the most magical hippie summer you never had." One of the "Top 10 neglected American classics" - Tom Cox, The Guardian Unlimited

From the Camera Obscura website, 1997:
'The first new full-length CD of the Green Pajamas' 60s influenced psych-pop since Green Monkey/Bomp released the truly excellent "Ghost of Love" in 1990. Main songwriter Jeff Kelly has always been one of the US’s finest practitioners of the psychedelic pop song, and over the last few years his songwriting has reached dazzling maturity and depth, as showcased in his most recent solo album "Ash Wednesday Rain". Believing that "Ghosts of Love" was the Green Pajamas "Rubber Soul" and that Kelly and Co still had a "Revolver" in them waiting to be drawn out, Camera Obscura approached Green Pajamas to coax them out of their semi-retirement. The result is "Strung Behind the Sun".

'Over the course of 15 songs, the Pajamas stage the biggest comeback since Lazarus, and show why no-one can touch them in their chosen genre. "Strung Behind the Sun" is a dazzling ray fired into the prism of psychedelia refracting off in all directions. Lyrically, it is a winter record, and one imagines long creative afternoons spent in Seattle coffeehouses under siege from the rain. The listener is treated to songs about snow and Madonna complexes, family and strangers, love and loss. Standout Kelly’s tracks "The Brain I Realize" updating "I am the Walrus" and "Tumbledown Tess", written in the wake of his father’s death. Other band members also contribute in fine style, Joe Ross’s "anthemic "Graduation Day", and Eric Lichter’s "Scarlet Song" which climaxes the album.'

Only £28.99 for this 2LP set (80 minutes), including postage anywhere in the universe!

CADDY - "TEN TIMES FOUR" (SUGARBUSH SB055), following on from 2015's THE BETTER END, here comes the latest album by Norway's finest: Caddy. Another very fine selection of fantastic songs this really is the last word in Powerepop and in the words of Powerpop News: "There are so many standout tracks here it’s hard to know where to start. The pulsating start of “Somewhere Beautiful” bursts into about as radio-friendly a chorus as you’ll hear this year. The aptly named “Contagious” is more than worthy of it’s title. With it’s harmonies, hand claps and monster hook of a chorus, it’s a real keeper. Then, one can settle comfortably into the jangle-fest that is “Not the One” or soak in the Big Star feel of “Safe Travels”. It’s nothing short of a vacation for the ears. With fantastic production, a killer cut and a fantastic sound, this 140gm pressing is housed in a pvc lined inner for added protection. Only 300 copies pressed, this is expected to sell out very quickly. Only £19.99 including worldwide postage!

NICK PIUNTI - "TEMPORARY HIGH" (SUGARBUSH SB050), Nick's 4th album and his third to be released on vinyl on Sugarbush. Another dose of heavy guitar based Powerpop with songs to die for and a huge produciton as ever. Big choruses, hooks galore and crunching guitars make this a stand out record of the highest order. We also still have a few copies of his other albums left so why not get all three? if you are looking for the very best Powerpop in the tradition of Cheap Trick or Aerosmith then look no firther, this album is a true gem. Pressed on 140gm audiophile virgin vinyl!  £19.99 including postage anywhere.

TRAPPIST AFTERLAND / MOONGAZING HARE - "SONGS FOR NATHAN" (SUGARBUSH SB051), an audiophile issue on vinyl for the first time with 4 extra tracks not on the cd. a collection that gathers together both Moongazing Hare and Trappist Afterland for an 12 track split set. Hopefully if we think on, we’ll be coming back to this in due course, for now a brief tasting of what to expect with us finding ourselves somewhat smitten by both bands openers. The haunting ‘fine horseman’ opens the Moongazing Hare account, emerging from the twilight, a ghost lit ballad whose shadowy entrancement creaks with a magical hush to softly draw you in with its eerily whittled woodland craft and into the bargain sumptuously steeped with a morose majesty that recalls the black heart procession. Trappist Afterland serve up ‘restless day’, in truth sounding like they’ve fallen from another age long since consigned to memory and legend, they craft a seriously intricate and nonetheless bewitching brew which manifests in the shape of this outer worldly spirit walker. Swarthy, hazy and a tad mystic, ‘restless day’ is the kind of thing you’d expect to emerge from the shadowy backwaters of Ecstatic Peace et al, a mysterious folk wanderer weaving a multi lingual tapestry of tripping acid folk and Indian raga mosaics. £19.99 including postage annywhere.

TRAPPIST AFTERLAND - "LIKE A BEEHIVE, THE HILL WAS ALIVE", a brand new deluxe audiophile limited repress, (SUGARBUSH SB053) This contains two BONUS TRACKS (not on the original vinyl): "Penitents' Trail" and "Father - sun itself live. The music Trapped Afterland create is very hypnotic and rich and, while I just sort of look around when they have an abundance of lyrics such as: “I feel like a sketch... lalala... Without any shading”,  the understated richness of the multitude of odd and compelling vocals and instruments makes it all work.
Don’t pass Trappist Afterland up if you truly want a heavy, melodic dose of authentic modern psychedelic music. While they advertise themselves as producers of spirit music for the dispossessed (Not exactly the target audience for great financial reward...), they have a marketable musical product here which is well worth listening to by any fan of late 60s pop music at its purest.

Schizo Fun Addict "El Shoegaze Bossa Nova" (Sugarbush SB052), out now on Sugarbush is the latest release from this legendary cult band who have graced us with many, many fine releases before. This latest album - limited to 300 copies on vinyl - is another superb addition to the mindbending catalogue of music the band have concocted down the years. A lovely, lush swirl of guitars blending - yes - Bossa Nova and the guitar Indie pop so beloved by acts such as LUSH, MY BLOODY VALENTINE & ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN. (Oh, trivia fans not that the album pictured on the turntable is none other than The Junipers - Red Bouquet Fair.)  Alovely trippy affair with a fantastic sound quality to boot. Only £19.99 with free postage (album comes shrinkwrapped with polylined inners for extra vinyl protection!)

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" (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.
