Sorry I Slept on Alpine Subs
Earlier this month Alpine Subs released their debut self-titled LP, and I’d like to personally apologize for giving you late notice of how great the LP is. It’s weird, it has this strange blend between the mid 00s college indie rock vibe and the omni-present power-pop; it uses these two consistently, giving you 12 songs that can be either soft or be seen as rock. I like the 2/3 punch of “Miles Away” and “Menomonee; the former has this soft swagger akin to I Was a King, while the latter has this innate softness in its style that gives you a little ear candy. But, the more I sit around and listen, the more I realize that the entirety of Alpine Subs is probably best suited for a sit-down/listen-all-the-way-through moment, but you do you…just stream it below.
