New Jersey arts and leisure information, options and occasion previews.|

Lazlo, founding father of (an Web radio station primarily based round New Jersey artists), shines a light-weight on a number of the latest releases from NJ-based artists every week on this column. This week Lazlo focuses on the releases of OC Ripper, BreakTime, Darkish Surfers, and Public Entry.

OC Ripper – “Glad Hours Air Journey Membership (3 tune Sampler!)”. Because the title suggests, OC Ripper’s new EP is three songs from their upcoming album, “Glad Hours Air Journey Membership” (due in February). If these songs are any indication of the album, anticipate some enjoyable steel infused with punk rock. Attempt it!

BreakTime – “Nice Occasions”. BreakTime selected an incredible time of 12 months to launch their debut EP, “Nice Occasions”. That is what I might name a summer season album, and a rattling good one at that!

Why a summer season album? As a result of what BreakTime does effectively is return to the candy pop rock sounds of the Merseybeat period (suppose early Beatles). These are the sorts of songs I need to blast in my automobile with the home windows down on my strategy to the seaside, nonetheless, as I sort this it is a very chilly winter’s day.

However for greater than 25 minutes I listened to BreakTime, their melodies and harmonies are just like the rays of the solar that increase my temper… on this gloomy, chilly day.

Darkish Riders – “Can Desires Be Actual?”. I am not a superb descriptive author. For those who’re a daily reader of this column you’ve got most likely already figured that out.

Why do I trouble to say that? As a result of there are such a lot of issues I need to say concerning the new Darkish Surfers’ EP, however the phrases simply do not come to me, regardless that I spent greater than half an hour making an attempt to give you them ( twice so long as the EP itself!)

So let me simply say that Darkish Surfers is wonderful, with distinctive vocals, and a sound that I actually loved… even when I’ve bother explaining it.

Maintain on!

Neighborhood Announcement – “Welcome Meteor”. Public Entry describes their new EP as, “indie-terrestrial cloud-folk vacation americana”. I do not suppose I can describe their music any higher so I will simply add that I actually like this EP!

That is all for this week.
