Minor Alps-Get There

Veterans of the alt rock scene Juliana Hatfield and Matthew Caws have collaborated to form Minor Alps and have in turn released this brilliant record.

The album opens with the sombre yet delightful Buried Plans before the slightly more grungey I Don’t Know What To Do With My Hands.  The record is full of exquisite and subtle tones as well as this the duo complement each other superbly as can be heard on the superb Maxon.  It’s not all lovely harmonies from Minor Alps though as they show they can riff with the best on the excellent fuzzy track, Mixed Feelings.  Despite the somewhat morose title Lonely Low is a superb tune that moves things along really well.  I’m not sure what I was expecting from this album but the pure beauty of it really got me by surprise and the emotive Away Againcloses the curtain on truly enthralling record.
