gobbinjr
gobbinjr is Madison, WI-native turned lil nyc bb Emma Jerk Witmer's unapologetic new project. Her debut album 'manalang' is the blunt, peachy child of Witmer's angsty yet sophisticated approach, creating a bedroom-panorama of earwormy, hazy melodies. While a fair amount of music relies on the spark of collaboration, gobbinjr explores the simplicity of a one-mind/one-voice songwriting process. Witmer keeps to herself, thus she kept her album to herself… writing and recording every single detail of it. The result is one individual's unfiltered, unfettered statement, something so ethereal it nearly transports you into Witmer's own daydreamy world.
Little Heroine
Little Heroine
Little Heroine -- a San Diego trio out to warm the cold hearts of ‘90s alt-rock-loving, cardigan-wearing curmudgeons -- mirror the shape-shifting, disorderly soft/loud dynamic of yesteryear champions like Neva Dinova and Nirvana with the goopy, gross-out music video for their new single “Emoji.”

“With ‘Emoji,’ I really wanted to deliver a no-frill punk-pop tune with our own spin,” lead singer/guitarist Michael Shannon told SoundDiego. “I’d been listening to a lot of ‘In Utero.’'

It shows. The band (which also counts Spero’s Jesse Hofstee on bass and drummer Dylan Stallard as members) seems to finally be taking shape after a few years of rotating lineups.

And with their latest single’s sloppy guitar, wretched riffage and Shannon’s quivering vocals (a tad reminiscent of Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst), “Emoji” should fit in quite solidly among your Dinosaur Jr. and Pavement catalogs. ––NBC SOUNDDIEGO
