It takes a brave band to call their album Yuck, but Alpine don’t seem to give a hoot. Co-produced by band guitarist Christian O’Brien and Dann Hume, the newie, set for release next month, is the follow-up to 2012’s debut, A is for Alpine. To keep you occupied until then, you should check out lead single ‘Foolish’. Of course, being the upstanding, non-messing-around readers that you are, you have probably already done that. Back to the album and according to the band it is heartily inspired by Tropicália, which they discovered by listening to the sounds of ’60s and ’70s Latin and South American pop. The Barwon, Geelong – June 25 & The Karova, Ballarat – June 26.
