Apologies for constantly short blog posts. I’m rubbish and seemingly constantly in a rush. Stumbled upon Australia based Alpen on Bandcamp the other day and, although I haven’t had tonnes of chance to give it a proper listen, I’ve certainly enjoyed what I’ve heard.
Firmly electronic, there’s a really progressive and consuming sound built up through textures and layers of beats and guitar here that I find perfect for drowning out early morning bus journeys. I’m not going to call it ‘night bus’, though. That would be silly.
Listen for yourself below, check out more from the Feral Media label, or download the full EP for free at bandcamp.
