DOWNLOAD: Sic Alps - Glyphs (MP3)

Sic Alps

Sic Alps' fourth album is a bit of a change for these sludge-loving San Franciscans. The first thing you hear isn't a squall of feedback but...strings. You can hear it for yourself, "Glyphs" is downloadable above. The self titled album, out September 11 on Drag City, finds the band dipping a toe into the world of mid-fi recording and I think the band cleans up real good. They're still living in the swamp, but they've got plumbing now and it's definitely Sic Alps poppiest (in a '67 Kinks/Stones kind of way) long-player to date.

Sic Alps will take the show on the road beginning in September and will make their way to NYC on October 28 for a show at Knitting Factory. No ticket info available (or openers listed) yet. All Sic Alps tour dates are listed below.

Sic Alps is a excellent band. I like their music and my friend's do too. You can't say something is not good when it comes to music because it just may not be your tastes. It's like saying I don't like apples therefore apples are bad.
