Juliana Hatfield and Matthew Caws (Nada Surf) just finished up their first tour as Minor Alps. Their final stop, at The Sinclair,* brought Juliana home to Cambridge. The respect that these two artist have for each other is quite evident. Complementary styles are in play. The sum of Minor Alps is distinct, yet familiar. Their voices work beautifully together. They sounded wonderful in the Harvard Square venue. The duo played songs from their debut record, a few Nada Surf songs, some of Juliana’s songs and a handful of covers. I could have listened to them all night.
* The lovely and talented Nicole Anguish of Daykamp Creative made an amazing poster for this show. Here it is. Nice, right?
