Album Notes
Formed in 1989, The Sugarplastic have released three full-length CDs, including "Bang, The Earth is Round" (Geffen) and "Radio Jejune" (Sugarfix Recordings). This new CD, "Resin", has been three years in the making and contains 17 new tracks.

Singer/songwriter Ben Eshbach has crafted some mildly surreal gems for this one along with bassist Kiara Geller and drummer David Cunningham. Guest musicians include Pat Mastelotto (XTC, King Crimson) and Andy Metcalfe (Squeeze, Soft Boys, Robyn Hitchcock).

Jeff Meister

Excellent Beatles-esque CD, creative and melodically catchy.


I hate the beatles with all the blackness of my soul. With that said, I would just like to add that this band makes my ears orgasm!

the listener

It usually takes a couple of listens for great hooks to kick in.. Sugarplastic have the knack for hooks that grab you about halfway through the first listen.. and many of their instrumental passages have an irresistable, almost sculptural kind of beauty that's difficult to describe. Comparisons with the Beatles are understandable but not really helpful, Sugarplastic can never have that sort of range or cultural impact.. but what they do, they do brilliantly. This despite occasional lapses into tweeness (in the sense of overly cute) which, I think, makes their music difficult to embrace for those not already seduced by the band's other real strengths. "Resin" is much better than the previous "Bang, the Earth is Round", although that album's 'Soft Jingo' is up with the best on this one.


jump on the elephant6wagon!
wow if there's such a term call auditory orgasm nothing defines it better than the Sugarplastic! real feel-good whimsical rhymes with jangly little psych-pop strings which generates images of worms peaching out of peaches and happy birds twittering thumbelinas in honey dafodils welcoming the golden its not the beatles or beach boys or mamas and papas or humpty dumpty. It's like my favourite Roald Dahl book come alive with bittersweet phantasmeuphormagoric-shibuya-kei guitars!! ghing ghing ghing!!Woohweeh! We have just witnessed an epiphany

Listening to these guys makes me miss XTC less

CD Baby

The Sugarplastic makes some of the sweetest, quirkiest and most lovable jangly pop to come through the doors of CD Baby ever. With subtle highlights and influences from Brian Eno to the Beatles to Syd Barret, their mix of quaint, playful jangle, sweet guitar lines and a modern songwriting approach is simultaneously classic and original. Clever, a bit mischievous in places and delightfully eccentric, their handle on a distinct and unforgettable sound experience, otherwise known as their album, "Resin," is solid.

supreme lyrical madness, if there is a heaven it must sound like this
The music that The Sugarplastic offer is awe inspiring. You will hum these songs to yourself all day but not in a sick elevator music kind of way. This music will dominate your listening and your friends' listening. Butt don't ever let them borrow it because they will never give it back. I know people compare The Sugarplastic to the Beatles and most other new wave pop bands but The Sugarplastic reigns supreme above them all. I know I will piss off a lot of people by saying that The Sugarplastic blow out the Beatles but if you don't beleive it just buy it.
