8/10 Mike Staff review, 25 January 2012
If you take a look at the press release for this item you'll see that it's some kind of mysterious concept piece, and it's not exactly business as usual for concise indie-garage stalwarts Sic Alps. The companion pieces that cover the two sides of this record are eerie, stunted things where static hiss and flutter takes us from section to section like a radio being retuned, so the structure is somewhat ambiguous, and often the minimal kerfuffle only barely holds together any semblance of melodic direction, but then out of nowhere they'll start sounding like the Kinks for 30 seconds. This is like an entire album's worth of ideas condensed into a single piece of concrete over two sides of a 7”, or maybe like a graveyard for scrap ideas that never found a fully-formed song. This is the most experimental and challenging thing I've heard from these guys yet, and it makes for an intriguing and unsettling listen.
