The Sugarplum Fairies are an indie pop duo from Vienna that now calls Los Angeles home. Somewhere between Hapsburg and Honkytonk, swaying palm trees and swirling dark espresso, airy minimalism and waltzing americana, the Fairies play melancholic songs on sparkling instruments. Think of an evening gown captured in Kodachrome. Gustav Klimt on Route 66. This is music for when you ve been up all night but are still in control. Nico and Leonard Cohen singing duets on accordion and 58 Les Paul out by the pool at the Beverly Hills Hotel. On their latest release, The Images We Get, Silvia Ryder (vocals) and Ben Bohm (guitar, background vocals) have crafted another expansive collection of austere Angeleno pop. This time around Ryder s unadorned voice and Bohm s precise guitar are joined by Ken Coomer (Wilco) on drums, Jebin Bruni (Public Image, Ltd., Fiona Apple) on bass and keyboards, Danny T. Levin (Rilo Kiley) on horns and The Calder Quartet. The album was mixed by Todd Burke (Belle & Sebastian, Ben Harper) and mastered by Pete Lyman (Daniel Johnston, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club). (Paul Dichter) Press Excerpts: ...The Sugarplum Fairies draw influence from French cultural icons such as Francoise Hardy, Anna Karina, and Jean-Luc Godard, as well as the Velvet Underground, John Lennon, and Lee Hazlewood. The thing is, they sound like a bit more chic and upbeat version of Mazzy Star meeting Ivy on the left coast for some beatnik bluesy fun. (Pop Stereo) ...The icy European glare of Ryder s downbeat vocals have a self conscious theatricality about them...a delectable mixture that is part Emma Pollock s resigned pop sensibility, part Hope Sandoval s pretty sullenness and part shimmering Cardigan-esque pop. (Americana UK) ...Vienna natives Ryder and Bohm have created something that is low-key and gratefully high strung in the emotion department...filled with ambiance, traditionally so, and folksy and airy...feels like those moments when something has just ended or something fraught has occurred in a person s life. It s casually sad and absolutely beautiful. (Performer Magazine) ...If the Cowboy Junkies and the Raveonettes were locked together in a cupboard with nothing but an acoustic guitar, a bottle of cheap wine and a well thumbed copy of the Belle & Sebastian biography they d end up as the Sugarplum Fairies. (The Devil Has The Best Tuna) ...this shows the band gracefully doing what it does best: creating dreamy pop nuggets led by Ryder s swoony vocals while the musical backdrop includes elements of dream pop, country and folk...The band is really strong no matter which hat it s wearing. This isn't a band hoping to compete, they've arrived. (Dagger Magazine)
