Celebrate Your Scene Vol. 1 – New Jersey

In New Jersey, Procrastination Compilations on March 25, 2010 at 9:38 pm

So as I mentioned earlier, I cannot say enough good things about Titus Andronicus. So I will take this post to say as much good stuff about them and the rest of the current New Jersey music scene, sorry Bon Jovi fan(s), as reasonably tolerable. To demonstrate my true admiration for the music of my home state, I created this compilation to serve as an introduction to the great music coming out of New Jersey (mostly Bergen County, the county in which I reside). We have an ongoing series of mixtapes featuring music from Canada called From North Of America, and so I figured it would be appropriate to also have an ongoing series of music by local musicians from where we come from or used to live. I think it is important to celebrate your local music scene and this is my way of doing so. I hope you find some new music to enjoy.

Most of this music comes from:

This is by no means all that New Jersey, or even all that Bergen County, has to offer. This is a brief sampling of an exciting music scene that happens to be almost literally in my backyard. Enjoy!
