The Alps – Le Voyage by _type

The Guardian’s great profile on Jefre Cantu-Ledesma (Tarentel, Root Strata) a few weeks ago inspired me to check out Le Voyage, the latest album by Cantu-Ledesma’s band The Alps. It’s the group’s fourth album, lush and hypnotic and demonstrating an amazing ability to seamlessly shift between genres and sounds. Le Voyage is out now on Type Records, who, I should note, generously have a ton of their releases available for streaming on Soundcloud (come on other labels, get with it).

The Alps will be playing at Root Strata‘s On Land Festival in September.
