Monday, July 9th 2012: Oceanographer

TONIGHT’S SHOW (no cover):

  • 10:30 PM— Oceanographer is a Brooklyn five-piece featuring our own bartender, Jeremy, on guitar and vocals.  Metromix New York had this to say about them: “Deftly bridging the gap between the lovely French electronic movements of Air and the touching classic American soft rock of a Gerry Rafferty or Michael Murphey—all the while including the subtle rancor found within the products of such otherwise grandiose bands as Coldplay and U2—Oceanographer arises from the BK indie pile as a singular, wonderful delight. Led by the sad, steady vocals of Jeremy Yocum, this group can easily aim for levels of midlevel major success, and if the right ears find them… well, let’s just say Oceanographer could very well end up a band you’ll want to be able to brag that you saw back when they were only playing the little stages in town.” Listen here.
  • Devious Semantics pair catchy girl / guy vocals with straight-ahead indie rock.  They remind us a little of Centro-matic, a little of Mates Of State.  Expect Fuzzed out guitars and pop harmonies.  Listen here.

  • Invisible Days ride the lines between shoegaze, indie pop and slowcore.  Sort of like Sparklehorse, Rollerskate Skinny, Luna and Acetone all rolled up together.  Listen here.

  • And the cherry on the whip cream atop the cake is Owen McCarthy, chanteur extraordinaire and general handsome devil.  Owen once fronted seminal band The Everyothers and, later, Submarine Bells.  Owen will be opening the show solo tonight.  He’s a tenor crooner, a real natural vocal talent with a knack for songwriting, so come early and don’t miss him.  Listen here.
