Just a year after releasing their double LP Napa Asylum, Sic Alps is back with their eponymous fifth album, which will drop September 11th on Chicago's Drag City label. The first single, the album's attitude-filled opening track "Glyphs", premiered recently on Pitchfork. The song actually has a very Beatles feel—albeit a very lofi, raw Beatles feel. From the gentle, string-filled intro, to the bevy of dirty and angular, but oddly melodic guitars and vocals that follow, "Glyphs" showcases this band's incredible talent:

Having just wrapped a tour of Europe in May, Sic Alps aren't heading back out on the road until the Fall, when they're playing a handful of dates with Thee Oh Sees in SoCal, Montana, and western Canada. Hopefully we'll hear some additional material off Sic Alps as the album's release date and the band's Fall tour inch closer.
