Sugar Candy Mountain’s Mystic Hits is a space-age blast of psychedelic pop and Tropicalia that sounds like it could have reverberated right out of Phil Spector’s echo chamber.
If Brian Wilson had dropped acid on the beach in Brazil and decided to record an album with Os Mutantes and The Flaming Lips, it would sound like this.
Sugar Candy Mountain feels like something unearthed from a box of records found in your dad’s garage, glowing wistfully with vintage inspired tones rambling organs, fuzzed out guitars, shimmering keys and sprawling drums. Reiter’s woolly voice croons with icy warmth of Francoise Hardy, while Halsey’s tender Lennon-esque vocals uncoil with easy languor. Recorded with Jason Quever of Papercuts, the bands sits comfortably between 60’s Laurel Canyon bliss and more modern production of Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips/Tame Impala).
