Sic Alps have yet to really impress me but they seem pretty popular with the office folk so maybe i should give 'em a wide birth. Saying that I'm digging A-side 'L. Mansion' from the outset. It sounds like it was recorded thirty years ago and has been sitting in some clued up psyche pop collectors vault until the time is right for a psyche revival, i guess now is as good a time as any. It's simple little doo wop-esque rock'n'roll composition striped down the essential elements with the vocal playing the largest role. It sounds great and is making me want to revisit earlier Sic Alp's efforts. B-side 'Super Lungs my supergirl' is a Donovan cover performed convincingly with a ton of enthusiasm. It's worth hearing if only for the insane guitar solo and the mutant take on the original Donovan vocal. Psyche!!!
