The Alps: "For Isabel"

We first heard about Type Records alums The Alps (not to be confused with Drag City's Sic Alps) when Kenny Bloggins sat down to chat with Alexis Georgopoulos to talk about Arp. The San Francisco band, made up of Georgopoulos, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma (Tarantel), and Scott Hewicker (Troll) will release their fifth LP, Easy Action, with Mexican Summer at the end of March. Mixing equal parts guitar and electronics, The Alps create a sunny mélange of folk pluckings and wide washes of noise that, like a brilliant beam of light, could break through even the thickest and darkest clouds. --Ric Leichtung, International Tapes

MP3: The Alps: "For Isabel"

Mexican Summer will drop Easy Action March 29th, in the meantime stream their last album, Le Voyage, at Type Records' site (thanks for the tip Self-Titled)
