Asbury Park, New Jersey-based rock trio Levy & The Oaks are revving up to release their upcoming album Sound Of The City. Their new video for “Obsessive Love” is making the rounds, and their sound is pure perfection for the summertime. Lucky for us, they created a playlist as an ode to their home, and we’ve got the exclusive streaming privileges right here! Says the band of the soundtrack:
Asbury Park is filled to the brim with amazingly talented artists. This playlist only scratches the surface and is our way of saying “Thank You” to all the friends and family we’ve made along the way. Asbury welcomed us with open arms and we hope to do the same for all upcoming inspiring artists looking to join our music community.

SunGhosts‘ band members compiled some of their keystone musical influences. These songs and artists helped to shape the way they channel their energy into their instruments and create something new & completely original on an individual basis. Once you listen to what has inspired each band member, then you can see how SunGhosts’ sound is like sedimentary rock n’ roll (geology pun!) Be sure to pick up our album which is due out next week. It is available here.
Nik Olas’ Influences
While Colorado-based indie/blues rock group Dream Feed – comprised of Miguel Dakota (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Ryan Wagner (Lead Guitar, Vocals), Will Gaines (Bass), and Brian Nolan (Drums) – is busy crushing it, they’ve somehow found time to create a playlist just for Imperfect Fifth. We’re digging the vibes, and hope you integrate this one into your “must listen” list.
“These are songs that inspire us to be more creative writers, performers, and musicians. And they‘re just straight up jams!” – Miguel Dakota

Serving up vibes that capture the more ominous side of being an artist. Consumed by intense highs and lows. Love, lust, money, drugs, business politics, and a consciousness of freedom. The track list opens with a love driven hip hop ballad. Personally, I chase an overwhelming feeling of love / lust for writing inspiration. Tracks 2 – 5 focus more on the grind, the consuming work environment that is the music industry. This sort of career is life changing. It’s hard to describe, but sounds do it justice. Tracks 6 – 8 are more so about freeing conscious from the darker side of the music industry and intoxicating loves ; breaking free ; living a fluid life while maintaining balance. Through all the highs & lows of life, DON’T STOP.
Mac Miller ft. Kendrick Lamar – God is Fair, Sexy, Nasty

These are the songs I listen to when I want to sit back and close my eyes and just vibe out and forget about everything around me.
