If most so-called modern psych and garage bands seem to have trodden paths a bit too familiar with you these days, enter the Sic Alps, a Bay Area combo joyfully stuffing the Nuggets Box roster into a reverb-soaked trash compactor and extracting busted-up remnants at leisure. While the Alps' junkpile approach to classic rock via wasted echo-chamber vocals and lost-in-space mod guitars might sound like a bad trip to some, there's a real cohesion and weirdly tuneful vibe carried through the scuzz that might make their new LP Description of the Harbor one of your year's faves.

The Sic Alps is possibly thee best garage rock/psych band, and to have them in the Creative Commons is great!
