Album Premiere: Mystic Hits by Sugar Candy Mountain

Sugar Candy Mountain
16 December 2014

Oh man do we looooove this one. “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,” it says here, and indeed, San Francisco’s Will Halsey and Ash Reiter have achieved a brilliant mixture of trippy tropicalia, as torrid and twisted as we could hope for.

Recorded by Halsey at home and self-released by the band in late 2013, Mystic Hits gets a proper physical release (on vinyl and cassette) today from Royal Oakie Tapes & Records out of Oakland, California. Listen, then go buy for yourself and a friend. Go on, do it.
