Editors’ Notes

A supergroup of sorts, Alps features two underground favorites (Tarentel co-founder Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, ARP’s Alexis Georgopoulous ) and a part-time Troll — the band, not the storybook character — who peddles LPs at one of the country’s best record stores (Scott Hewicker of the San Francisco shop Aquarius Records). With a pedigree like that, you better believe Le Voyage is a strange trip indeed, from its short but surreal interludes (the wicked waltz of “Marzipan,” the dream sequence effects of “Petals”) to the towering trilogy that brings us all back down to earth. That’d be the chirping crickets, plaintive piano progressions and opium den overtones of “Black Mountain”; the cosmic Krautrock chords of the title track; and the penultimate psych-rock peaks of “Telepathe.” In the world of album closers, it’s a particularly heavy one, especially when compared to Le Voyage’s other bookend, the fireside finger-picking of “Drop In.” It's one of many unexpected moments in a record that owes more to old film scores and Serge Gainsbourg than anything else you'll hear this year.  

Customer Reviews

TRULY AMAZING!!!

Why don't others try making an album this BEAUTIFUL, this PSYCHEDELIC, this full of IMAGINATION?!?! The Alps are painterly in their approach to sound. They take you from British meadows to European waltzes to North African dunes to dusks in India ... and make you feel as though you're the one traveling to all these places, going through what their narrative takes you through. To this end, their music is so rich and evocative, it becomes literary, with each piece a chapter in a larger puzzle. If anyone wonders what Serge Gainsbourg & Jean-Claude Vannier might have done if they smoked a bit more weed and hung out with Pink Floyd, you will LOVE this album!

Obscured By Clouds

This album reminds me of some of the most satisfying part of Obscured By Clouds era Pink Floyd. Beautiful . . .
