Nebula+Quest for Fire+the Atomic Bitchwax


Ah, old-school California rock, with its stoners and psychedelia. Nebula does it so well that they’re featured in Tony Hawk’s video games. Now almost halfway into their second decade, guitarist Eddie Glass’s power trio continues to provide good crunching riffs and bellowing vocals, and all that’s missing is an undeniably killer song such as Mountain’s “Mississippi Queen.” Quest for Fire are in the same vein but a little heavier and more primitive, just like their name. Atomic Bitchwax make it a triple-header, proving that heavy-psych also finds its home on the Jersey shore.
