P76 - Into the Sun ((POWER POP PROD BY DOM MARIANI!) )-Label:OFF THE HIP P76 is one of Australia’s most loved, yet perhaps leastwell-known power pop bands.Formed by singer/songwriter Danny McDonald (Little Murders, Stoneage Hearts, Oscarlima, Jericho and solo artist Into The Sun reeks of the Australian summer. Produced by Perth pop legend Dom Mariani (The Stems, DM3), it is jam-packed with harmony-laden jangle pop guitar and tambourine - the sound of the summer sun bursting out of your speakers. A genuine nugget of its time. Danny McDonald is the prince of power pop. I want to hate him – because of his impossibly perfect hair – but his songs get me every time. They’re timeless and eternally youthful.
And Danny knows the thrill of the short, sharp song: get in, get out and get onto the next pop gem. - Jeff Jenkins, 2018 CD $12 SKU:19962
SUN ALSO RISES - ST(Superb 70s Brit acid psych folk) Label:LION Superb sought-after 1970 British acid folk rarity from the Village Thing label. The Sun Also Rises is another case of a folk/psych duo (we’re thinking of Emtidi, whose “Saat” album we have also reissued) who virtually disappeared in the flesh, once they had left behind a small but fascinating recorded legacy. The sole Sun Also Rises album has been reissued (legally and illegally) on several occasions, a testament to continuing interest in the music contained therein. Who were they? They were Graham and Anne Hemingway from Cardiff, described everywhere as a mystical, magical hippie female and male folk duo, who played guitars, dulcimer, glockenspiel, vibes, bells, kazoo, percussion—joined throughout by label-mate John Turner (bowed and finger-picked string bass), and Andy Leggett. Their one and only album is very much in the creative style and delivery of the Incredible String Band, with similarities to the work of their contemporaries Dr. Strangely Strange, COB, Comus, Forest and Tir Na Nog, as well as others of the original freak-folk brigade. The results of their efforts were tripped-out, spellbinding, esoteric folk collages—songs of wizards and dragons, dreams and intentions, love, flickering candlelight, the sweet scent of half-remembered summers, death, jasmine, and suicide. We hope that this album will come as a wonderful surprise for lovers of the Incredible String Band and their ilk, as there were few bands that were able to stray into this much loved and much loathed world of fantasy and folk music, and live to tell the tale. Our Lion Productions edition comes with a 16-page booklet printed on FSC recycled, chlorine-free, 100% post-consumer fiber paper manufactured using biogas energy, which contains a small dose of band info, album lyrics, histories of the Village Thing and Saydisc labels by co-founder Gef Lucena, as well as a Village Thing label discography.

SHIN JOONG & YUP JUNS - ST(1974 Korean psych!) Label:LION Spring of 1974, in Seoul: this was the time and place that witnessed the birth of psychedelic power trio Shin Joong Hyun & Yup Juns. This version of this quintessence of psychedelia features Korean/English lyric translations, rare photos, re-mastered audio, and color insert with fabulous archival photos of Mr. Shin plus comprehensive liner notes by Kevin “Sipreano” Howes, all housed in a tip-on sleeve, with OBI and mylar outer bag. LP $18 SKU:19960
SWAMP DOGG -TOTAL DESTRUCTION TO YOUR MIND gatefold BLACK VINYL - Label:ALIVE TOTAL DESTRUCTION TO YOUR MIND” (1970), has been called “one of the most gloriously gonzo soul recordings of all time”. The title track is a slam-bangin’ chunk of rock and funk that’s pushed by a great session band including guitarist Jesse Carr and drummer Johnny Sandlin, and is easily Dogg’s finest moment on record. But the rest of this is great too, ranging from the consumer nightmare “Synthetic World” to the paternity blues of “Mama’s Baby, Daddy’s Maybe.” – AMG LP $18 SKU:15022
