In 1997, after less than four years together, Mineral broke up. But while some bands simply fade away after calling it a day, that wasn't the case for the Austin-based four-piece. In fact, it was quite the opposite -- their legacy grew and grew. Not bad for a band who had just put out a handful of seven-inches and two studio albums, 1997's debut The Power Of Failing and 1998's posthumous EndSerenading.
“I’m a loser sometimes / I will lose my mind sometimes,” Jess Abbott sings on “Clipping,” the shimmering, tambourine-inflected centerpiece of Tancred’s new album, Nightstand. After the themes of self-empowerment and self-possession Abbott explored on 2016’s Out of the Garden, these lines can at first seem like a bit of a worrisome relapse. And in a way, they do speak to an unexpected revelation Abbott experienced following her transformation into a more confident person.
