about

ORDER TAPE DIRECTLY FROM BLUE OCEAN
blueoceanmusic.bandcamp.com/album/blue-ocean

A swirling haze of sound glazes over dreamy pop songs, leaving a shimmering electric roar with a slight grin. The Oakland, CA duo Blue Ocean play with shoegaze & noise pop to make a sound that is somewhere between My Bloody Valentine's "You Made Me Realise" era and C86 jangle - but with repetitive motorik drumming.

Blue Ocean are Rick Altieri and David Stringi; long-time friends and former bandmates from the Boston acid punk band Puke, now reunited in Oakland. The “Blue Ocean” tape compiles their two most recent EPs: “Summer Of Hands” and “Fade”, mastered and cleaned up by Mikey Young.

The two have been making “two chord pop with layers of swirling noise and synth pads, backed by a pulsing drum machine” for the last couple of years. I only saw them once at Hit Factory Pop City, the benefit show for Hit Gallery in San Francisco. They opened the benefit (of 8+ bands) under a “mess of cables” and hissing distortion, played their wobbling version of pop.
