The duo of Jason Balla and Alex Otake are probably best known for their work in Chicago’s Ne-Hi, but don’t turn away from their other project, Earring. They just dropped this droning bit of bedroom pop for us to enjoy, perhaps as a reminder of how great their music is while we await a new album. The musical approach of the guitars almost seems to blend shoegaze bits with underlying hints of the new emo vibe; it also includes the faintest jangle. I guess it would fit in the realm of slowcore…though there’s much more melody included in this one. Always nice to hear these guys working on tunes…so until then.
