Minus the Bear, Everest and Young the Giant


Roseland (map) Northwest
Fri., May 28, 8 p.m. 2010 All Ages


There's a roots rock sound so basic it doesn't even have a name. Many bands use the same minimalist toolbox to write their songs but few succeed in using them to create something really their own. Los Angeles quintet Everest show the same promise in their sophomore effort, On Approach, that Wilco did with Being There. Here is a band that can somehow make the tried and true sound fresh, yet comforting in its familiarity. Part of Everest's success lays with lyricist Russell Pollard, who is showing a gift for making everyday, simple turns of phrase resonant, but this is clearly a group effort. The band has gelled since 2008's Ghost Notes in promising ways; they've not stretched the boundaries or reached great heights of their craft yet, but this is a band with impressively sure feet.
