“Glyphs” by Sic Alps

“Glyphs” is the single from Sic Alps’ self-titled album, which was released this month, but to me it sounds like it could have been a John Lennon song around the time of the White Album or Magical Mystery Tour.  It takes the strings and surreal lyrics of “I Am the Walrus” and the staccato guitar and gloomy vocals of “Glass Onion,” slows down the tempo a bit, and gives the mixture a stop-and-start chug with a healthy dose of guitar distortion.  A choice cut from a very worthwhile album.
