SUGAR CANDY MOUNTAIN — Mystic Hits & Tour Dates

Mystic Hits has been out of print for almost a decade. Now it’s finally back! This album brought Royal Oakie Records and Oakland-based Sugar Candy Mountain to a wider audience and enabled both to develop a following around the globe.

Sugar Candy Mountain is now set for a US/Canada tour, and to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Mystic Hits, Royal Oakie Records will reissue the album on limited edition cassette, with a bonus track from the album sessions titled "Copacabana".

The band will reissue the album themselves on vinyl in an exclusive lava splatter vinyl edition (limited to a 1000 copies), and a translucent blood-red vinyl edition. The band will also reissue the 666 ​ album from 2016 on limited edition vinyl, featuring bonus track "Sucette", available in strawberry lime splatter and solid lime editions.

The Mystic Hits cassette reissue is available via shops and also to order from:

David Glasebrook of Royal Oakie Records says:

Originally a bedroom recording project, Sugar Candy Mountain has truly taken on a life of its own. Led by Will Halsey and singer-songwriter Ash Reiter, the group has grown to become a full-fledged live ensemble and a loosely knit collection of friends who help complete the recordings with their groovy sounds.

Sugar Candy Mountain began recording Mystic Hits while staying in Sao Paulo, Brazil and finished the record in Oakland, CA. Truly a delight to the senses, the album features far-out artwork by acclaimed artist and long-time friend of the band Jess Willa Wheaton. Anchored by the dual male / female vocals of Halsey and Reiter, the songs weave in and out of tempos and timbres like an acid daydream on a summer’s afternoon. This is the band's classic breakthrough album.

Imagine 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 Mystic Hits. From the fuzz guitar of “Soak Up the City”, to the electric sitar and 60’s pop vibes of “Lovely Time”, to mellow beach ballad “Saudade Love”, to the super catchy “Knock Me Down”, Mystic Hits is the psychedelic soundtrack for the 21st century. Think space-age sounds and far-out frequencies from the tripped out tropics.
