SWEET MELODIES: Oakland soft-psych duo Sugar Candy Mountain bring the sweet stuff to The Ritz.

Oakland’s Sugar Candy Mountain is one of the most recent contributions to the Bay Area’s long and storied tradition of gritty, lysergic rock. This East Bay duo mixes synth pop with swirling psych and elements of tropicalia (check out the castanets on “Crystalline”). The neon boat on the cover of this the recently released Do Right is about as good a symbol for the band as one might hope to find: small but sturdy, glowing in the night, and sailing away on a thick sea of analog sine wave oscillations.
