Mineral - Endserenading

Mineral - Endserenading
Género:Emo, Indie
Mineral was a prominent mid-90's American emo band originally from Austin, Texas. All four members of Mineral were signed to Interscope Records on individual contracts. Its former members have since moved on to other musical projects including The Gloria Record, Pop Unknown, and Zookeeper.
Mineral's music is characterized by its iterated soft/loud structure, overlaid with melodic, off-key vocals and ethereal guitar-based instrumental bridges. Many of their songs adhere to the formulaic and now ubiquitous stylistic conventions often associated with de facto pioneers of the post-emo indie rock genre, Sunny Day Real Estate (SDRE). Despite their ostensive similarities to SDRE, it should be noted that Mineral emerged contemporaneously with the group and added their own less intense, more brooding flavor to the then-emerging "Midwest emo" sound. Mineral's subtle balance between angst-ridden kinetics and wistful underpinnings, in conjunction with their intelligent lyrics, have heavily influenced indie-rock and emo bands of the late 1990s and 2000s.[1]
