Sugar Candy Mountain – “Stickeen”

Though Sugar Candy Mountain’s latest album, Do Right, was released back in May, the Oakland psychedelia-pop duo took charge of grabbing the potential for “summer hit” by the horns with a Beach Boy’s-esque breezy classic in the making.  “Stickeen” is buried as the second to last track, almost criminally as if an after-thought on the album (or ingeniously to break up the more mellow atmosphere established in the previous eight tracks).  Coming in at a tight two minutes plus, the upbeat rhythm and riffs are only matched by the band’s combined vocals expressing the unending love felt on the part of one to another.  Rain or shine, hot or sweltering, summer brings out the happiness of being head over heels in love.  Sugar Candy Mountain has captured this beautifully, so crank it up, hit replay, and enjoy the good vibes!
