Alpine Static

B+

Heavy hitters in an international psych-rock scene that makes record-store clerks salivate, this instrumental Seattle-based combo might be just what the herbalist ordered for Queens of the Stone Age fans disappointed by that band’s recent transformation into a slow-burning space-blues act. Kinski sacrifice the trappings of pop — vocals, melody, the fear of the eight-minute song — at the altar of the drone on Alpine Static: Their driving, distortion-drenched compositions are all about getting somewhere you never reach.
