For Fans Of : The Go! Team & Saint Etienne.

By day she’s mild-mannered Brooklyn-based music teacher Sharon Hagopian… but by night she’s smart and sassy electro-pop indie star Cannonball Jane, maker of 2006’s first truly great pop album.

Sounding more like the work of a group the reality however is rather different. It’s just hard to believe that there’s not more than one of her! Recorded entirely at home, Sharon’s studio set up of beatboxes, samplers, tambourines, guitars, turntables, piano, kid’s keyboards and effects shines through on “Street Vernacular”, creating a mind-bendingly brilliant mix.

From the Saint Etienne tones and Carole King-esque piano riff of “Slumber Party” onwards, “Street Vernacular” combines such diverse influences as Run DMC, The Go! Team, The Aislers Set, Ladytron, My Bloody Valentine, The Shangri-Las, Solex, The Go-Gos, Luscious Jackson and Devo, while remaining fresh, exciting and innovative at all times.
