Sugar Candy Mountain (Us)

Sugar Candy Mountain (Us)

Psychedelic pop/rock band from Oakland

 

EN - 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 - all psychedelic pop Wall - of Sound and beach balladry. "Impression" is a carousel ride through time with the Bonnie & Clyde of psych-pop, where classic meets contemporary. Sugar Candy Mountain gallops seamlessly from tripped out Tropicália, Shuggie Otis inspired grooves, kaleidoscopic psych jams, classic 70's reverie, and nods to krautrock without ever skipping a beat. Along the way Reiter's honeyed voice hovers seductively between breaking and beauty, taking us on a sensational ride through the ups and downs of apocalyptic visions, tender sunlit musings on love, and deep gazes of self reflection. RIYL: Os Mutantes, Tame Impala, Stereolab, The Beatles.
