Minor Alps, the Upsidedown, Melville

MATTHEW SINGER
8 pm., Saturday November 09 | $16 advance, $18 day of show.
Hawthorne Theatre
1507 SE Cesar E. Chavez Blvd.
 
[SUPER-DUO] Minor Alps is Juliana Hatfield and Nada Surf’s Matthew Caws, two artists who’ve sustained long careers by writing sturdy, intelligent pop rock that’s almost always pleasant, even if it’s been a long time since it’s knocked anyone on their asses. Get There, the duo’s debut, continues along that same, level trajectory. It’s an unassuming collection of winsome ballads and amplified rockers, decorated with largely superfluous drum machines and electronic flourishes and anchored by the two singers’ intertwined, harmony-rich vocals. It’s all good and fine and will probably make anyone who pines for the halcyon days of ’90s alt-rock warm with nostalgia. There’s no limb-climbing here for either, but hey, both artists are well into their 40s. Why take a risk now?
