This is part 1 of a two part episode on the record label Ernest Jenning Record Company. The label’s founder, Pete D’Angelo, stopped with a few beers and we spent a couple of hours talking about music…
We’re going to let Darkwing describe themselves here: “Anti-hero Theme Music. Yin yang grunge. Music to promote critical thinking. Happy/albeit sometimes strange music with lyrics about being uncomfortable or disappointed in the world and oneself or straight up love and stuff.” That’s about as perfectly as it can be put. It’s also worth noting that the band — based in Leonia, New Jersey, and made up of Richie, Zach, Louis, and Lyzi (also of Fruit & Flowers) — is exceptionally adept at blasting out huge, badass rock music with sweet hooks. They brought the chaos to the studio at Serious Business Music in DUMBO. Lameonia is available now, and Darkwing has new music coming soon. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
Like any good Jersey band, Springfield’s The Vaughns are inspired by bowling, fried food, and music. Their riffy, garagey take on punk is a fun one, filled with catchy melodies and sweet hooks. If this is your first time hearing/seeing them, pay attention! They dropped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, to show us how it’s done. The Tomfoolery EP by The Vaughns is available now.

This week, we welcome our second-ever guest to the Music Digest studio! Mike Mehalick is the mastermind behind the music blog, Speak Into My Good Eye, and the recently-launched Good Eye Records. We gathered around with a few beverages, a pile of music, and a whole bunch of NJ and music industry-related tangents. Blox Cord is Speak Into My Good Eye’s collaborative monthly showcase at The Footlight in Ridgewood, Queens, and the next one is happening on Thursday, February 9, featuring Caverns, Eagle Daddy, Funcrusher, and The Off White. We mention this video for Makeunder’s song “Great Headless Blank” from their Good Eye Records EP of the same title.
