Alpine – Gasoline
Remember Spiderbait’s ‘Calypso’? That’s what this reminds me of, save that the tropicoso lady lungs are underpinned with the aural equivalent of a lava lamp – suspended goop easing you into a state of goodwill/chill. I just listened to ‘Calypso’ again and no, it doesn’t sound anything like this tune, but I’m going to retain it as my point of reference. Let it never be said that Tommy Faith is a quitter.
It’s the first track from Alpines’ forthcoming debut ‘A Is For Alpine’ and it’s got the internet writhing à la your cousin’s 2009 pavlova OD. That was some heavy juju. Anyway, he’s healthy now and this track is bananas so its a win-win. I’m notoriously dispassionate towards female vocals so my unequivocal support of this track must say something of the total effect it’s having on me. The Ivy League Records roster is looking stronger with every passing moment/release and the impending record from these Melbournites is going to be another strong arrow in their already fantastic quiver (Catcall, The Rubens, Sures). Apologies for saying plenty and nothing at the same time but seriously, the track is a lava lamp. Think about it.
