Date set for Sugar Shack’s Compendulum release

Sugar Shack Records will next month put out a compilation album called Compendulum.

The new 16-track album, available on CD and digital download, comes out on 10 June.

According to Sugar Shack the album “isn't a compilation, it's not a remix project, it's not the vision of one producer or musician, it's not old and it's not new, yet it is also in part all of those things and most importantly totally fresh and enjoyable.”
