Congratulations to Finale Hill. The band’s song “Wreckless” will remain on the playlist.
“Suddenly Saturday” by Outside The Box
This Jersey Shore Rock act is a Blues-Rock hurricane that’s been storming the beaches along Ocean Avenue since 2004, even acting as The Stone Pony’s house band during the Summers of 2007 and 2008. With ties to Bobby Bandiera, the Bon Jovi guitarist produced the band’s second EP, and the Asbury Jukes, Southside Johnny’s brass section played on the aforementioned EP, Outside The Box is well engrained in the Asbury Park music scene and is currently in studio recording its highly anticipated debut LP.
“The Russians” by Atlantic, Atlantic
I saw Atlantic, Atlantic on Saturday evening at the Nick Of Time Benefit Show at Asbury Lanes (Story with photos and high quality vids coming soon), featuring Nick Villapiano on bass, and according to my Itunes library I will have listened to “The Russians” at least 30 times before this post is made. This Alternative Indie-Rock four-piece from Bradley Beach is the real deal.
“Can’t Speak” by Lost In Society
The Oakhurst rockers are making a name for themselves with tracks like “Can’t Speak.” It’s got major hooks that thrash around and sink in deep. Look for the bands upcoming EP Give Me Your Hope coming this Spring.
“Wreckless” by Finale Hill
This collection of young guns from Millstone play a soulful brand of Hard-Rock that caught the ear of Tara Elliott & The Red Velvets, who added the budding rock stars to its inaugural Asbury Rocks! party at The Wonder Bar last month. I expect big things to come.
“20lb” by Brick + Mortar
I can’t say it any better than this freaky Toms River duo can so I’ll let them speak for themselves…”We are Indie Rock, we are Drum and Bass, we are a connection between Urban and Suburban a bridge providing a voice for the disenchanted and uninspired, fueled by peace of mind and perspective that comes with a life lived in observation, we are building a movement, brick by brick,” they forgot to mention the Reggae undertones that I’ve fallen in love with.
