So if you missed out on all the great vinyl action from Sic Alps last year, don't worry, A Long Way Around To A Shortcut is here to save your ass. This fuzzed up scrap of plastic rounds up the some of the best of the Alps' limited wax, including The Soft Tour in Rough Form 12", Description of the Harbour 12" and that Strawberry Guillotine 7" plus the b-sides from the Semi-Streets 7". Though once they're compiled into one place they all seem to fold into one another inside waves of hiss and crumble, each release just a lost part of some other one. It's a damn shame that Matt broke his wrist or you'd have a great chance to experience their blown out gutter blues in true style, live and brutal. Keep your eyes open for a limited 7" coming up on Important and when they finally reschedule that tour, I'll see you in the crowd.
