The English indie quartet Sugarmen released the LP Live Freaks on the 10th.
Sugarmen – Central Line
A nine track release recorded live in Sheffield (England) – the mod tinctured second song – Central Line – zings through the room in soaring temperament which finds the listener, even if they were not at the gig, stamping around their own venue with arms raised aloft and feet hitting the ground with enough force to immediately rebound skywards.
Sugarmen, an English Indie quartet, are currently finalising details for an LP.
With a more trippy psychedelic mood than much of their previously featured material. SOLD also combines a merseybeat flavouring, giving the track an analogue retro-feel in which the listener can stare at the ceiling contentedly with glazed eyes.
The English Indie quartet Sugarmen released the single Plastic Ocean on the 4th.

Following on from the single Dirt which served as an introduction so Sugarmen earlier this year, Plastic Ocean has a more solid feel to it as the quartet combine psychedelic meanderings with indie rock to deliver a track that contains both intriguing eddies to explore and music that has the body swaying in enthused response.
Rather than packing Plastic Ocean with layers of complication Sugarmen strip away the excess fat leaving the audience with a track, that is easy to engage with whilst serving lavish melodies, that fills the room with a sense that all is well in the world of music as long as the quartet are creating songs.
Having spent the much of this year establishing themselves as a band to get to see live, Plastic Ocean will add weight to their attracting wider audiences and if Sugarmen build on the momentum, should see them gain significant traction in 2016.
