THE OCEAN BLUE joins 5 other great MSP bands for Jake Rudh’s first ever *Live* Transmission, Saturday November 29 at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis. They’ll be playing their own tunes as well as covers by The Smiths, The Cure, New Order and Billy Idol (with some help from a few other Korda Artists). You don’t want to miss this one! Tickets
In celebration of the Korda Records / Shelflife 2014 re-issue of Waterworks, The Ocean Blue has made a video for one of the bonus tracks, “Can’t Let Go.” Directed by TOB’s own Peter Anderson. Enjoy!
On 9/9/14 Korda releases THE OCEAN BLUE’s Waterworks on CD, digital and vinyl (partnering with our friends over at Shelflife). The release will feature the 6 songs of the original 2004 EP, plus 3 new additional tracks. The band is marking the release with shows in Los Angeles, New York, Wilmington, Brooklyn, Washington DC and Philadelphia this fall.
Another beautiful track from The Ocean Blue’s latest “Ultramarine” has been made into a video; this time by director Ginny Pitchford who weaves together live performance footage, hypnotic spinning lights, and dreamy vistas of outer space. Check out the Paste Magazine premiere of “Ground Gives Way” here!
Ultramarine is the fantastic latest release by The Ocean Blue, and let me assure you, it sounds exceptionally tasty on vinyl! Visit our friends at Shelflife to secure a copy on black vinyl while you can. Keep an eye out for announcements about TOB’s fall tour schedule–you may be able to score a limited edition Ultramarine on white vinyl at one of their shows!
Many thanks to all who pre-ordered The Ocean Blue’s latest ULTRAMARINE on vinyl; and to our friends at Shelflife Records with whom we partnered to put it out. Shelflife is now sold out, but some copies will still be available in record shops starting Tuesday, June 25. Here is a partial list of shops that should have the LPs:
Amoeba (Hollywood, SF, Berkeley)
Sound Garden (Baltimore)
Homer’s (Omaha, NE)
Twist & Shout (Denver)
Strictly Discs (Madison)
We hope a repress will be coming later this summer! Order on CD or digital download here.
Stay tuned: Jim Ruiz Set’s MOUNT CURVE AVENUE on vinyl coming soon!
We are pleased as punch that KEXP chose “Sunset-Moonrise” by The Ocean Blue as song of the day today. Earlier in 2013, TOB’s David Schelzel visited KEXP for in studio performance. Hear all about it here.
