What’s that from up on the mountaintop? Aye, it’s word of a new 12-inch single from the Bay area’s highest flying psych-pop outfit, Sic Alps. Titled She’s on Top, could this be the tip of the iceberg, an avalanche of new music just around the next ridge? The yodel of a press release does not say, so savor these soaring peaks of jangly rock, for we know not how many more months we must traverse before we’ll reach another summit of the Sic Alps.
This three-track single will be available via Drag City May 20 and comes on the heels of Sic Alps’ 2012 self-titled release (TMT Review). Sic Alps was no bunny slope of a record, so cheers to Sic Alps for giving us more music so soon; it’s like the slow trickle of spring rejuvenating the land after a snowy winter, the sun melting the water-encapsulated caps. Or it’s just three cool new tracks to be devoured via heavy slabs of vinyl.
