Further, the band is currently honing that bristling, dense thicket of echo with simpatico sound maestro Eric Bauer, once Donovan's bandmate in Big Techno Werewolves. Just in time for a new growth spurt, Sic Alps recently bunked down in Bauer's basement-based Chinatown analog studio, where Segall recorded his last album, the Oh Sees tracked its next full-length, and the Mantles jotted down a 7-inch.

After doing the 9-to-5, the band is ready for something more, though Donovan amiably confesses, "I want the rock 'n' roll lifestyle without getting paid for doing rock 'n' roll. I only work two days a week, but I have a rock 'n' roll lifestyle — without the money."
