On Wednesday evening one of the finest in a flourishing flock of Folk-minded artisans to call Monmouth County its home, Thomas Wesley Stern, was unable to take part in the Hump day staple that has become the weekly M.A.D. musical showcase at The Downtown in Red Bank, hosted by local radio personality at 90.5 The NIGHT, Jeff Raspe, and, due to a band-wide illness…in return, the four-man string graced its audience with a new demo titled “Forgiven.”

In its current state of infancy, “Forgiven” features the group’s Joe Makoviecki serenading his people with a rustic croon in this acoustic-guitar led self-reflective confessional that, according to the band, could be seen in on split in the near future.

This talk of a new release comes shortly after the band’s 2012 debut full-length, American  Pain, which dropped at a crowded release party on March 9th within Asbury’s newest live music locale The Press Room, a 13-song collection recorded at AntFarm Studio that has developed into one SIMGE’s favorites of the new year.

And yesterday, the outfit was at it again, releasing a haunting and cavernous cover of Sufjan Stevens’ “Size To Small” in homage to one of its musical heroes…stream it below:

In other cover song news, You Are The Quarry (the alter ego of Amboys bass wielder Manny Castanon) released his rendition of The Magnetic Fields’ “No One Will Ever Love You”…

While Jay Sakong of the Ambient-Rock outfit Old Nick covered “Falling Forward In A Backwards Motion” by fellow Garden State Indie-Rockers Pilots In Orbit, which you can view here

And Justin Bornemann  and Emily Whitt of the Asbury Indie-Rock collective          No Wine For Kittens performed “I Know The Pattern,” originally penned by The Thermals:
