This one's a bit late but well worth the mention. The Sick Leaves independently released  their third studio album on March 8th this year. The new album, Last Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy follows the SAMA nominated first and second albums (Tunnel Vision in 2007 & Stone the Crow in 2009).  Last Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy was  produced by Grammy award winner producer David Torr who has produced for the likes of Zebra & Giraffe, Cassette and  Dear Reader. 
The Sick Leaves were in the Cape last year for Rocking the Daisies, Synergy Live and gigs in Stellenbosch, Somerset West and Cape Town. They are planning a Cape Tour in August, but nothing is official at this point, according to the band manager Linda Thompson.
Listen to the track “Coz you like it” off the new album, below.
