An Ohio music collective that formed in 2004 in Athens, Aquabear Legion has put out a number of compilations over its decade-long existence. Now, the group has just released a double-LP featuring bands from all over the state. Acts from Cleveland, Columbus, Athens, Cincinnati, Dayton, Yellow Springs have all contributed. In all, 24 bands are represented.

The Cleveland contingent includes the acts Herzog, Murderedman and Kid Tested. The Herzog tune "Oh No" careers like a Weezer tune and has a great vibe while the Murdered Man song, "Love Under Ground," features distorted vocals and has a real ominous feel to it. Kit Tested's jittery contribution, "#1 Hit," recalls '90s-era Guided by Voices. The songs mesh well with the other tracks on the disc. The album is available on vinyl. It was pressed at Musicol in Columbus and the jacket was printed locally at Gotta Groove Records
