yard style

The 13-song collection combines new material with reinterpreted versions of past cuts (including the hit "Turn the Lights On"). It showcases Big Sugar performing their tunes in stripped-down acoustic form; these arrangements were inspired by their jam sessions on the tour bus and backstage before shows. Recorded live off the floor in a drum circle 'yardstyle' arrangement Big Sugar is joined by their friends and elders.
