Sic Alps cover Tronics for their fourth 7-inch of the last 9 months; new album arriving in September

Sic Alps were quiet for the first half of 2011 after dropping their Napa Asylum album-plus (TMT Review) at the top of the year and parting ways with longtime band member Matt Hartman, but as of August, Mike Donovan and [Ty Segall + whoever else] have been piling up even more singing tape experiments in as many permutations of the 7-inch format as possible. First there was the Breadhead EP, led by the first Neil Von Harmonson-penned Alps “smash hit” and carried through two other excursions to a straight garage cover of The Wailers’ “Can’t You See.” Then one month passed and a classy single was debuted, “Battery Townsley” b/w “Cambridge Vagina.”

From there, Alps disappeared and reappeared again in January with a big fat 23-song-slice medley called Vedley and pressed onto a third 7-inch. Next Tuesday, April 24, the 7-inch series takes a bow with four covers of UK spiritual forefathers Tronics, via the Pangea Globe EP. Marvel as Donovan and co. do the “Squiddley Diddley”; thrill to their signature stylings on “Shark Fucks”!

And if that ain’t enough, how’s about a new, as-yet-untitled 10-track LP in September? Consider it done. And head here to download a buncha their best shows for free. 1 Love.
