Seven Random Tracks (and one whole album) Reviewed
Alpine is bringing back the clean, perky yet breathy ‘70s studio pop that once dominated the AM radio waves. To say there’s a new irony to the exercise would be to misremember history. There always were undertones of earthiness and impurity to even the squeakiest studio pop, not to mention the explicit self-satirists like 10cc. This Australia-based Alpine's single "Hands" totally nails that eerie poppiness.
