Princeton – “To The Alps”

Princeton’s “To The Alps” sounds like a song called “To The Alps” by a band called Princeton: It’s smooth, classy pop you’d imagine listening to while thawing out in front of a ski lodge fireplace. Sure, the group’s named after the childhood Santa Monica street address of twin brothers Matt (in London studying Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and La Monte Young) and Jesse Kivel (also of Kisses), but in this case the Ivy League makes more sense. It also makes sense they’ve mentioned Arthur Russell and John Cale as influences. The song appears on a limited-edition 7″ out next month. Luxuriate:
