"Napa Asylum" accounts for the swift tilt of time since 2008's "US EZ", with 22 crafted tracks bubbling in the reverb tank. The album is overfull with Sic pleasures, echoing half-emptily like they do as the hooks slide into your flesh, animating you marionette-style to tip-tat your way across the dance-floor. Let's away to the Tascam 8-Ball! Themes from include re-incarnation, magic & schizophrenia. Yeah, the sound reflects a minimal set-up, but don't let them fool you. The process is the flavor. You can still get in on the ground floor, ?cause Sic Alps always record in the basement. Get down your steps while you can, the songs are as short as they are bitter-sweet.

CANAVARRO, NUNO - PLUX QUBA

BACK IN PRINT on the LP-format, this is a reissue of an interesting 1988 work by the highly regarded Portuguese composer. The music is simple, gentle, melodic and yet completely alien. There are some similarities to Robert Ashley's later work, but even that is deceiving.

BACK IN PRINT! On vinyl, it's the acclaimed third album by the notorious rock terrorists, produced in 1999 by Michael Gira (Swans).

 

LE BON, CATE - ROCK POOL

Four non-album tracks that spin and swirl the waters with carnival pop, synth, drone and dance, all beamed along the panelectric ray of Cate's immutable blank stare. 'Rock Pool' is a short-and-sweet-play fun of a highly ambiguous nature.
