Rock On! This Week's Sound Bites...9/5/19
By Danny Coleman

Makin Waves Record of the Week: "Endless Bummer" by Lowlight
By Bob Makin
From the first seconds of the Phil Spector-meets-Brian Wilson-like symphonic surf-rock of the opening “Give it a Minute,” Lowlight had my full attention with their new LP, “Endless Bummer.” Complete with a sweet slack key-like steel guitar that follows a great childlike choir at the end of the track, “Give It a Minute” is the Makin Waves Song of the Week at, its “Radio Jersey” show, as well as Makin Waves’ Spotify and YouTube playlists.

By Bob Makin
​​​​​​​Levy & the Oaks are a relatively new band featuring four well-established veterans of the New Jersey music scene. Front man Levy Okun and bassist Lou Panico were in Drive-Thru recording act Socratic, and guitarists Chris Colon and Nick Ryan also are known respectively for their involvement in international Beatles tribute acts and Asbury faves Taylor Tote Band.
