They’ve Gone There
The past couple of years have been great for reunited late 80’s/early 90’s alternative rock bands. Legendary groups like Dinosaur Jr., The Replacements, and Sebadoh caught immediate buzz after reforming, and sales of new material and tour dates are proof that there’s money in nostalgia (or just overall great indie music). As 2013 begins to wind down, another resurrection has burst onto the indie scene, and it’s a name that’s entirely new. Juliana Hatfield (Blake Babies, Some Girls) and Matthew Caws (Nada Surf) have teamed up to form Minor Alps. The name comes from a mini mountain near Caws’ parents’ house in France where he spent his summers growing up. Juliana and Matthew have been close friends since the early 90’s, and have jammed together a handful of times. Recorded in Hoboken, NJ and released on Barsuk Records, Get There is 12-tracks worth of well-crafted songs and pleasant arrangements. There are some straight-up loud rockers, and some mid-tempo songs that linger, but the best stuff happens when they get all lo-fi and acoustic. “Buried Plans,” “Lonely Low,” and “Waiting For You” are the highlights, because they’re sweet and gentle and I told a fellow co-worker that they make me want to jump into a pile of leaves and escape into sound. Hatfield’s and Caws’ vocals are two great tastes that taste even greater together. For any old head who loved them in their prime – don’t worry, they’re still in it. And for any newcomer who thinks Generation X can’t hang with today’s emerging indie rock acts – give Get There a listen; you will not be disappointed.

The Nashville cast graced the the Country Music Awards red carpet with their presence. We’re kind of sad that Deacon didn’t walk with Rayna, but whatever… we guess.
Here’s to never growing up.
