Australian sextet Alpine just released its first album: A Is For Alpine is a dreamy, floaty, and gorgeous set of electronic-assisted pop. The band's two singers, Phoebe Baker and Lou James, bring a sweetness to Radiohead's "Just" that Thom Yorke probably wouldn't have imagined, but it works—especially since guitarist Christian O'Brien brings all the growl and nastiness of the original. Alpine is just finishing up a U.S. tour, with a stop in Cambridge, MA tonight, and New York's Webster Hall tomorrow.
