CRYSTAL VIOLET 'Violet Night' (self released)

This is all over the left-of-the-dial psych map, in a good way. Groove jams similar to Kentucky's Jovontaes, good vibes of "Tago Mago," Magik Markers' hits, the Lips, some era Hawkwind crossed with SY's "Made in the U.S.A" road some Pups in there too for the Meatheads, mind the Meat. The sweet At the Altar of the Mystical Unicorn ballads are where its at. I'd really like to hear Crystal Violet with a killer backing band but then it wouldn't be the closest thing NJ has to 'Oar'.
