Album Description

CURATOR:

GENRE:
Length:01:01:47
Host: Brian Turner
Engineer: Glenn Luttman

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. More info at www.sicalps.com. The band ees: Mike Donovan - vox, guitar, Matthew Hartman: drums, bass (on last tune). Songs today: Gruxxe Bathe Ballade, Brill Building, Mater, C.O./C.A., A Story Over There, Latin, Stories, Everywhere There, Semi-Streets, I Know Where the Madness Goes. -Brian Turner (WFMU Playlist/Archive)

Engineered by Glenn Luttman.
