“Black Dress, White Dress (Acoustic)” by Jerzy Jung
Jerzy Jung is one of Asbury’s premiere songstresses, and that isn’t just my opinion. A voting class of her piers recognized the Haddonfield native’s talents this passed year by granting her the title of Top Female Vocalist at the Asbury Music Awards. This next track is an acoustic version of lead track of Jung’s 2010 debut EP Hello Desire.
“The Absolute Worst” by Man Overboard
Man Overboard is a group of Williamstown Pop-Punks that have created quite a name for themselves since the band’s inception three years ago. As well as scoring a spot on the upcoming Bamboozle in East Rutherford at the end of April, and captivating the ears of Miley Cyrus…
…the outfit has released a new seven-inch, The Absolute Worst, that’s title-track is below, and have even contributed a compilation album named Vs. The Earthquake to raise money for the victims of the catastrophe in Japan.
“(We Won’t Go) Easily” by Mercer Avenue
The Asbury Pop-Punk act, Mercer Avenue, has shared the stage with the likes of Nicole Atkins and, on March 1st of this month, released its debut EP, Nothing Left Behind, a record engineered by Tim Flanzbaum, who did work on Paramore’s platinum album Riot!. Go grab the band’s EP for free here...but first enjoy this fresh cut.
“Mad Flava” by Bert Lz
Bert Lz is one of the hottest wordsmith’s around, who knows how to work a crowd, who’s rhymes are profound and will drown all the haters in town. He’s much more talented than myself. The emcee just played a show at The Brighton Bar last weekend (vids, photos, and coverage of that coming soon) with Almost There and My Love For Danger. Rumor has it that more shows with this lineup will be popping up again soon, keep an eye out, but for now, enjoy this track and its accompanying music video.
“Untitled” by The Paper Suns
The departure of lead guitarist, turned solo-artist, Kevin Basko did not phase the three remaining members of Finale Hill who have carried on under the monicker The Paper Suns, with a new axe-wielder, George Verveeniotis, and a new sound, which can be classified as trippy, cavernous Psychedelic-Rock. The band is planning their debut record, but in the mean time, look for more releases of this nature and for a show announcement in the very near future.
