RIYL: Melody's Echo Chamber, Soft Candy, Tame Impala, Beatles, Beach Boys, Cate Le Bon, Allah-Las,

Label: PIAPTK

Sugar Candy Mountain is back with “Do Right”, their 4th LP in total and their 2nd being released by People In  A Position To Know. The duo of Ash Reiter and Will Halsey knows how to compose some sweet and sugary 60’s inspired psychedelic sunshine/indie-pop, and there’s hints of a lot of greatness involved (Beatles, Beach Boys, Allah Las, The Pastels to mention a few). The first available track “Split In Two” follows in the vein of their previous Dave Friedman-produced album “666”, and plays around with various synths and studio-trickery on a lovely groove which brings to mind the sounds of the Kevin Parker produced debut-album by Melody’s Echo Chamber (or even his second  Tame Impala-album “Lonerism”).

Now, we’ve been holding back on posting for this album for a few weeks, as we’ve been waiting for the announcement from People In A Position To Know. PIAPTK  usually do some special, limited stuff with their releases, and for Sugar Candy Mountain’s previous album “666” the first 100 copies got a rad Lathe Cut single (w/ SCM covering The Zombies’ “Beechwood Parks”)!  With “666”  being the label’s most selling release ever, the odds were that something would pop up for “Do Right”. It did, alright!

There’s no word on how many test-pressings or Lathe’s are made, but for now you’ll get a Lathe thrown in with the Blue Swirl variant of the album for free. If you’re short of the “666” album, there’s a cool bundle w/ a Pink Vinyl copy + the Blue Swirl “Do Right” incl. the Lathe at a favourable price!

Spiel Below:
Part travelogue, part response to the current, turbulent climate, “Do Right” gives voice to the deeply nested anxiety of modern times attempting to offer a balm. Nature, it seems, is where the band often goes to calibrate it’s moral compass so frequently upended by the daily news-cycle. Sugar Candy Mountain invites you to join them on this journey singing “There’s a quiet place I go when I need to find my way/ There’s a quiet place inside/ Come on in just knock and a door will open”. Musically, the band remains rooted in 60’s and 70’s rock, with their signature honey sweet vocals. “Do Right” leans more heavily on synthesizer than the band’s previous records, lending the album a more modern feel. The album pairs the ephemeral orchestral arrangements of The Beach Boys with the pop sensibility of George Harrison on “All Things Must Pass”. Oscillating between the hazy psychedelic pop of Mild High Club, the driving energy of Dungen and the danceable familiarity of The Supremes, “Do Right” is a perfect cocktail of old and new, imploring the listener to take a ride into the sunset with Sugar Candy Mountain.
