Boomkat product review for:

sic alps - Sic Alps

Album number four from America's "toppermost of the poppermost", Sic Alps, and number two for their pals at Drag City. The small stars and stripes on the front cover gives good indication of what's in store; they've largely dropped the distortion and upped the country/Americana quota, becoming a much more "mature" prospect than their endearing garage exploits for Siltbreeze, Woodsist, Important et al. It's essentially American pop music with heaps of classic references regurgitated in their knowing style, a sound which apparently caused Stephen Malkmus to claim they would be "one of the most important bands of the next ten years". That sorta scares us, and it should you, America.
