(out tomorrow) is a bewildering, dirty, vaguely depressing slog, and we mean that in a good way! So the video for its first single, "Do You Want to Give $$" is a bewildering, filmy clip of busy workaday San Francisco intermixed with shots all vagely related to money: ATMs, panhandlers, dude with crumpled bills.

Oh, and catch Sic Alps at the mother of all local rock shows Feb. 9, when the Sonic Youth-praised stalwarts play with Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees at Great American Music Hall
