SUN HOP FAT
Sun Hop Fat is a dangerous place to lay your feet to rest. The group’s reinterpretation of the Swinging Addis period of Ethiopian music is a cauldron of swell and froth that can only be broken by an upheaval of emerging groove. All these voices, provide a soundscape rich enough to plant a garden in. So much sound. So much foundation. So much travel and change.
Sugar Candy Mountain
A mix of Os Mutantes, The Beatles, Beach Boys, The Kinks.
"Sugar Candy Mountain, a side project of Ash Reiter, has been sharing tracks from their upcoming LP Saudade Love on Bandcamp, and it’s music any fan of indie pop and/or psych rock should check out immediately. Drummer Will Halsey, who splits lead vocal duties with Reiter, tells me Saudade Love is a collection of songs he wrote while touring with The Blank Tapes in Brazil and a few “psychadelic tunes” he’s been working on with the rest of the band back in the Bay Area. While Reiter’s music under her own name is mostly sunny pop, Sugar Candy Mountain drifts out into the spacey psychedelic territory Halsey mentioned, while throwing in a bit of electronica and Brazilian influence for good measure. Despite the slightly different musical direction, Sugar Candy Mountain still crafts ear-catching hooks that I want to listen to over and over." -- Bay Bridged
