Get There


Minor Alps


Amoeba Review

10/28/2013

Brainy and occasionally sneering alternative rock grows up and gets a room in the form of Minor Alps, a relative super-duo consisting of Juliana Hatfield (Blake Babies, herself) and Matthew Caws (Nada Surf). Vacillating between rip-fuzz jangle in a sort of mustard color (both very '90s and very timeless, more of what you might expect from these two) and a hushed electronic folkiness in robin's-egg-blue recalling Pinback at their sparsest. There's a romantic realism, odd list-making narratives, mellotrons. I can quite safely call this indie pop in a way that feels very clear and familiar to me. Heck it's even on Barsuk.
