Why is that comp called "Welcome to Jersey" if there are no NJ bands?

Jersey, UK.

So The Otis Wolves/The Ghostwrite split is good if you want to feel sad. Sounds really good for a "smart phone" recording as well, so congratulations.
Wasted Fangs's RIYL is dead on. They're pretty good.
I'll also recommend Tiger! Tiger!
The Welcome to Jersey comp is also pretty good overall - some hits, some misses.

Tiger! Tiger! is solid.

Tiger! Tiger! rules. Their 7" with I Salsa Your Face and Hayford is fantastic.
