gobbinjr (lowercase, despite what autocorrect will tell you) is the musical project of Madison, Wisconsin-native-but-currently-NYC-livin’ songwriter, Emma Witmer. Facebook says that her middle name is Jerk, but we don’t think it is. We also don’t really think she’s a jerk, even when her songs get kind of mean. How much of a jerk can you be if you name your band after your first bong? Exactly. Witmer’s music — recorded on her own — is pretty personal, but live she’s got a whole band to give the songs that extra energy and they stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, to play for us.
Vom Night and Shea Forever are available now.
Whether you're a metalhead or not, this NYC trio will have you wrapped up in its soothing dark thrashers. | read
