Speaking of psychedelic music, San Francisco's Sic Alps have just released a video for "Glyphs" off their fifth studio recording and 25th release altogether if you count all the singles, cassettes, compilations, EPs, and CD-Rs.

Visually, there's a scrappy Wizard of Oz meets Woodstock thing going on here—or maybe it's their interpretation of John Mellencamp's Scarecrow album (stranger things have been known to happen in the realm of psych rock). The band has also announced dates for their fall tour with Thee Oh Sees, a perfect pairing if I ever heard of one.

Drag City releases Sic Alps, which includes the excellently titled "See You on the Slopes," on Sept 18. They play the Neptune on Oct 7 (8pm, all ages, $15 adv).
