Sic Alps

Californian band Sic Alps are to release a self-titled LP, their fifth to date, via Drag City on 10 Sep. And lo-fi and behold (sorry, they’re not even all that lo-fi), they’ve shared its very fine first track, ‘Glyphs’, for our listening pleasure.

It’s a varicoloured affair and a marked broadening of horizons for the band; toying with nuanced strings (‘nuanced’, that is, by Joanna Newsom collaborator Ryan Francesconi), off-time garage guitars and an abiding whiff of psych contrarian Syd Barrett.
