A Folk-Rock scene has developed within our musical community, the same names constantly drawing hoards of adoring enthusiasts to various venues, basements, and watering holes, transforming these show rooms into galleries of artistic expression, and a handful of those usual suspects can be found on a recently surfaced sampler that features new music from Accidental Seabirds, The Amboys, Mad Feather Group, Thomas Wesley Stern, and the apparent director of this collective effort, the outfit known as Elevator Art.
Elevator Art’s contribution to the record is a song named “Killing Time,” which will appear on the band’s forthcoming EP Tent City, which was recorded by Pat Noon, the man at the helm for River City Extension’s 2010 debut The Unmistakable Man.
The track list read like this:
- “Underneath The Sea” by Thomas Wesley Stern
- “Killing Time” by Elevator Art
- “Isabel” by Accidental Seabirds
- “Ashley” by The Amboys
- “Art Collector” by Mad Feather Group

Depending on where you allegiances lie you can see four of these groups in action tonight, as Accidental Seabirds and Thomas Wesley Stern will appear at EJ’s Tavern in Seaside Heights, while The Amboys and Mad Feather Group will be at Trinity & The Pope in Asbury Park…be sure to swing by the latter of hose two shows if you’d like to pick up a free copy of the sampler.
NOTE: Anthony Defabritus has many titles, some of which include bass plucker of Accidental Seabirds, spoken word artist, world traveler, and now he sports another hat as a record producer.
Defabritus recently opened AntFarm Studio in Freehold, New Jersey with bandmate, and co-owner, Javier Rebollar and local artist/designer Gregg Bautista. The trio’s current projects include a new Accidental Seabirds release, and follow up to the band’s 2011 debut full-length The Snow And The Full Moon, as well as Thomas Wesley Stern’s debut full-length and sophomore release, which follows the four-man string band’s 2011 EP Hope Folk.
Things are happening people. Get in the loop and enjoy the sensory overload…Did I Mention Mad Feather Group’s debut record Magic Stuffing comes out on Monday (October 31st)…a happy Halloween indeed.
