Biography

Sic Alps, a messy, gritty indie rock affair rooted in noise pop and the Velvet Underground's seminal soporific lo-fi, formed in the early 2000s as a collaboration between Matt Hartman (formerly of Henry's Dress) and Mike Donovan (formerly of the Ropers); the two met in the late '90s while on tour with their respective bands. Starting with Semi-Streets, their cassette-only debut ... Read more in Amazon's Sic Alps Store

Editorial Reviews

2012 album from the San Francisco-based Indie Garage Rock outfit. During Pavement's tour of 2010, Sic Alps played some British gigs with them - it's been written that during one long night in Brixton, Stephen Malkmus was heard uttering within shot of a microphone that Sic Alps would be one of the most important bands of the next 10 years.

Sure, I engaged in competitive baseball and basketball programs up through my teens and yeah, I like hamburgers, Brooklyn Decker and Monday Night Football. But I like other stuff, too. And much of that stuff isn't nearly as based in American traditionalism as my core. Like most, I love The Beatles and the Stones. Alfred Hitchcock, Nic Roeg, David Lean, Mike Leigh and Ken Loach. The Kinks and the BBC. Keeley Hazell and Alice Eve. Radiohead and The Clash. I even love Oasis and many of my recent favorite television programs - "Shameless," "Peep Show" and "The Inbetweeners" - are Channel 4 efforts. And while I do have a messy mouthful of teeth and a less-than-sunny disposition, I've never considered myself to be an Anglophile. They have the better slang but we have the prettier girls. They have London, we have New York. And yeah, I'd move to Edinburgh or Manchester - if at all conceivable - long before I'd move to Austin or Portland. But no, again, I don't say "wanker" or "fit" or smoke the cigarettes. I listen to the records, mostly, and watch the films. And that's why I originally fell in love with Sic Alps, a Kinks obsessed garage rock band who play the kind of psych-heavy rock that could've been released in the late 60s. Turns out, though, that band leader Mike Donovan is from San Francisco, no Leeds. He has an American beard and British hair. Malkmus' build, Lou Reed's haze and, I'd guess, Nick Lowe's heart. His band's new record, simply titled Sic Alps, is one of the best I've heard this year.

The first thing I noticed about Sic Alps was the cover art. It's timeless in it's simplicity and interesting in its texture - a selection of grey metal siding from the rear of a van, left plain, aside from a tiny American flag in the bottom right corner, there maybe to remind us.
