Album Review: Sic Alps > Napa Asylum

Napa Asylum
Sic Alps
Drag City / Jan 25th, 2011
1.7 of 5 (34%)

Analysis: Loose noise and half-formed songs in an album that barely resembles a skill of any kind. You can’t always trust Pitchfork reviews, especially when they basically praise a product for being shitty on purpose.
