North Jersey Notes: Reese Van Riper, The Infinite Staircase, Jersey Campfire Productions and More!

As I was searching for a band to feature this week, I came across a band out of Ringwood, NJ that kind of scares me a little bit. Now, I know that these guys have graced the pages of The Aquarian before, but they just released a new CD back …

North Jersey Notes: Wyland, Vextion, Civic and More!

I came across an amazing young band out of Kearny, NJ, who’s been out there already making a big name for themselves. I guess I really missed out on them because I tend to veer toward the hard rock and heavy metal stuff than the pop-rock stuff. But these guys …

North Jersey Notes: Cruel Season, Ogre, Blameshift and More!

I mentioned this week’s featured band a couple of weeks ago when my old bud, Mike McManamon, who used to sing for the band TNA, sent me a Facebook request and then a message about this new project he was fronting. He told me the name of the band was …

North Jersey Notes: Malvador, Ixion Lux, Seas Of Wake and More!

I am thoroughly enjoying the sounds coming from this band out of Hamburg, NJ because it’s unique and out of this world. I feel like I’m at a circus listening to their music, but I also feel like swing dancing at the same time! The name of the band is …

Shoreworld: The Hive Mind – Monitor

I have covered more than a few instrumental bands on these pages over the years. Two that come to mind are the wildly popular Chemtrail as well as the vital, rockabilly sounds of The Black Flamingos. The Hive Mind is yet another offering from the non-vocal genre that leans way …
