CMU Approved

Hebronix

First, a basic Hebronix CV. Daniel Blumberg quit his first band, Cajun Dance Party, just as its brand of sugary jingle-jangle pop was starting to look like it’d had its day. After that he moved with the times, reappearing in the midst of grunge-toned (sonic) youths Yuck in 2011, only to leave after one LP.

Blumberg is now ‘back’ (again), this time via solo alias Hebronix, and will release an LP titled ‘Unreal’ on 8 Jul. Its title track, a bed-headed hymn to slack dissatisfaction, is quite happy to spiral back and forth on a pair of fairly prosaic chords, but gains extra-special shine via the lyrical twists and jewel-like synths in its seams.

Listen to all that, if you like, by playing it on this player:
