Editorial Reviews

2013 release from this Indie act featuring Alt-Rock veterans Juliana Hatfield and Matthew Caws. Over the last two decades, both Hatfield and Caws have carved out long-lasting and strikingly independent careers within a dependably fickle music business, Caws with his now 20-year-old New York City group Nada Surf, and Hatfield with the Boston-reared Blake Babies, the Juliana Hatfield Three, Some Girls, as well as a number of releases under her own name.

This is a really fine album by 2 artists who should get way more attention/recognition & credit than I think they do. This work is the essence of artistic integrity & synergy--- heartfelt songs with creative arrangements, written collaboratively, played & sung acoustically by the duo. I was hoping Juliana would take this route toward acoustic guitar and her playing is great with Mr. Caws'. The vocal blending is exceptional--the harmonies are very tight. Juliana's 'Wild Animals' album is also outstanding.

Hatfield is prolific. She has released a slew of albums over the past 25 years but she completely fell off the radar by the late 1990s and commercial radio had no small part to play in that. She's a very talented songwriter (has grown to become one) although I haven't liked all of her output.

Her singing voice has always been a sticking point for me because that candy cain, sugary, little girl voice of hers I've always hated. But now, she has finally found a partner whom she harmonizes with so well that it is nothing but joy when you listen to this music. I saw Minor Alps perform live and they were splendid. I hope Hatfield works on a second album with Caws. They sing so well together. There are several tracks on Minor Alps that deserve major airplay. For the most part, this is soft sounding, gentle sounding music. It's not hard on the ears.

I wouldn't call it alternative, either. It's just good music. Buy Minor Alps Get There and do something good for your soul.

I had been an early fan of Juliana Hatfield. This release is inspired, and emotional. Sonically strong, and tastefully understated. Juliana and Mathew Caws' voices complement each other. The lyrics are interesting, too! The songs feel like an album, and a creative effort, in the old tradition. You aren't going to hear a lot of 'early' Juliana type, spit-punk angst. It is a new entity and I hope we hear more of it. With Some Girls and earlier efforts, it sounded like Ms. Hatfeld was looking. Highly recommended!

This album by the Minor Alps is garnering attention from many quarters and took the prize of this weeks Sunday Times album of the week. It brings together a collaborative studio release from long-serving US indie rock pairing comprising singer-songwriter Juliana Hatfield who formerly worked with the Lemonheads and Matthew Caws of the excellent band Nada Surf. This is by no means a gritty album but it packed full of enough solid melodies to draw you back for further listens and celebrate a very interesting musical partnership. The best way to describe the music is to employ the old fashioned term "power pop". This is music that is not heavy rock yet still packs a punch. Listen to the pounding "I don't know hat to do with my hands" and you get the perfect feel for the album vibe. Punchy melodies layered upon intelligent lyrics and melodic flair are the order of the day. In terms of "Mixed Feelings" you detect a punky classic screaming for wider recognition while the lovely "Lonely Low" recalls Hatfield's former partner Evan Dando at his best. The dreamy electronica of "I wish you were upstairs" also impresses and is the type of song that insidiously infiltrates your brain.

The album gets better and better on repeated listens although it does at time lack variation and variety hence the dropped star. Indeed if all the songs were like the opener "Buried Plans" a sort of Fleetwood Mac driven track with a twist then five stars would follow. As it stands a quick listen on Spotify may convince you that this album could well be a nice stocking filler for those family members not in search of the latest "One Direction" for a present.

Quality sounds from Juliana Hatfield and Matthew Caws. Not the "alt-whatever" you'd expect. This is a powerful work from two mature artists at the peak of their powers. Beautiful, ethereal, contemplative, compelling. Highly recommended.

Has a sad/beautiful, Simon & Garfunkel quality to it. Some songs drone on a bit, and you wish their vocals - which are very similar in pitch - sometimes separated more so you knew who was who on occasion. But a minor quibble. Many of the songs have a hypnotic, ethereal feel. As a Juliana fan going back to the Blake Babies, musically, this is new territory for her. A nice surprise from an artist who rarely disappoints.

Around the time that the components of Minor Alps were initially building careers, I was a literal fetus, so my perspective on this album is completely untouched by their musical histories. Nostalgia is not necessary to appreciate Get There. I wasn't really able to get a sense of the whole thing when I "needle-dropped" on iTunes, but when I popped this on my turntable and listened straight through it was cohesive and chill. I tend to have to analyze music to appreciate it, but this was really easy to float with even though it has some depth. The vocal harmonies are the prize of the album. "I Don't Know What To Do With My Hands" is obviously an earworm, but most of the less ostentatious songs crept up on me too. A favorite.

Matthew and Juliana together seems like destiny. They complement each other so well, both vocally and in style. I was always a Juliana fan and didn't even know Matthew but am glad to have discovered him. There are some great songs on this collaboration,
