7" Record Compilation
This is a group owned compilation made by bands and artists brought together in the eclectic underground of New Brunswick, NJ after the turn of the century. A collective spirit brings brand new tracks by each artist/group. Side A offers the folk side of the spectrum. Side B offers the out-rock side of the spectrum. "...very easy to replay, which I've been doing again and again; long may the Spirit of New Brunswick fly on." exclaims Larry Fuzz-o Doleman of Blastitude Blog and webzine. "Another fine release housed in a great sleeve and well worth picking up." states Simon Lewis and Andrew Young of Terrascopic Rumbles. "This scene has been perplexing me for years. In the best way possible...A very solid spin" confirms Byron Coley in WIRE Magazine. Zoooid artwork by Kotar.
$8 (postage paid in U.S.A.)
