Man, San Francisco’s lo-fi garage rock scene is on fuego. And it doesn’t get any hotter than Sic Alps. These guys are so good it’s stupid. So good they toured with Sonic Youth. So prolific that every time I turn around they’re coming out with more music that gets better and better.
Comprised primarily of Matt Hartman and Mike Donovan, the single-happy duo has been churning out music together – and a lot of it – since 2004. Steeped in lo-fi scuzz, their sound combines elements of grungy garage rock and 60s psychedelia . It’s both timeless and fresh and I never get tired of listening to them.
“L Mansion” is a track of their new 7″, out now on Slumberland.
diggin’ this one pretty hard! i have an older album of their’s that i had a hard time getting into but the production values on this track are fitting. i like the monkees as well:)
Yeah, these guys keep getting better and better for me. Glad you like it! going to see Woods this weekend (with Dungen) at Bottom of the HIll. Your dream show, no?
i’m going to buy the sic alps cut on 7″…good stuff!
-hope you had fun at the woods show!
These guys were on my “to check out” list for a while and I think song is the perfect introduction to them. Already on has a place on my next mix! Nice one…
