I was looking through the ole’ Bandcamp when I came across this band Sugarglider. I wasn’t really sure I liked it, it’s not really my jam, but I let it play out and somewhere I could hear something that was instantly respectable. I was ready for this late-80s-out electric slow dance–but it wasn’t quite sparse enough to lean against a wall or fast enough to robotic space dive. I left Sugarglider behind, it was too electric or too poppy. A few days later I found myself seeking it out again–but it wasnt Sugarglider anymore, it was Renny Wilson. Renny Wislon announced that he was no longer Sugarglider, just Renny Wilson, Sugarglider by Renny Wilson. I don’t know for some reason I was more intrigued. I listened to the tracks some more and started to really dig it. The songs ‘Come Tomorrow’ and ‘Could’ve it Been Me?’ were starting to grow on me. They’re totally retro with this boyish charm. Nice vocals, lyrics are good, super fucking poppy. A couple of the tracks are vocal-less, instrumental electric grooves, like the title track, which is nice background music for a pool party or shish kebab convention. This ‘By the By’ track is pretty good too, ya I just wanna go on sweet montage walk.
Also I was immediately attracted by Renny Wilson’s label who released the album, attracted by it’s name and pink neon lettering.
Sugarglider is availble on cassette or download and if you aren’t sold on him yet, guess what I just found, there is a music video too. IT’s absolutely ridiculous, an over the top look into the life of Renny Wilson, superstar. @CigaretteBreath
