Mineral/Into It. Over It.

When: Fri., Sept. 12, 8 & 11:30 p.m. 2014

Texas was something of a hotbed for hardcore and emo music in the 1990s, both of which fused soft-and-loud dynamics with reflective lyrics. Mineral, which disbanded in 1997 and reunited mere months ago, recorded music at the forefront of this scene. The band’s two albums, The Power of Failing and EndSerenading, showcased musicians intent on crafting fine yarns. The dual guitars of Gabriel Wiley and Chris Simpson wound ’round each other in spidery melodies against steady drums and bass lines. Both albums play exceptionally well, even with more than a decade of time wearing away at them. There’s plenty of beauty in angst and darkness, and Mineral certainly takes a most nostalgic approach to that. (Sandy)
