JULIE OCEAN
LONG GONE AND NEARLY THERE
TRANSIT OF VENUS

Washington, DC scene vets Julie Ocean bring their vast levels of experience to the 10-track power pop explosion titled LONG GONE AND NEARLY THERE. Snippets of The Beatles and The Beach Boys are embedded within the framework of songs like the handclap-driven "Bright Idea" while "Looking at Me/ Looking at You" lands a Replacements-sized jab with a touch of Social Distortion's black sunshine and "My Revenge" and "Ebb and Flow" burst with Brit-pop pretense. Refined without losing its yearning to rock, Julie Ocean provide a lesiurely glimpse of a band who are working hard to master the art of making pop-rock gems with the proper twists needed to be hummed in elevators around the world.
