Podcast: Julie Ocean

By David Malitz

The debut CD by Julie Ocean isn't just "local" good. It's good good. "Long Gone and Nearly There" is an adrenaline rush, a half hour of brisk indie-pop songs filled with bright guitars, big hooks and sweet harmonies. I could spend more time listing the bands the members used to be in -- and singer/guitarists Terry Banks and Jim Spellman do just that in the podcast interview linked below -- but there's no need to dwell on their past glories. This album might just be the best thing any of them have done. In this podcast Banks and Spellman discuss the band's formation, their past projects and tell some good stories about the D.C. scene in the '90s. You can also hear songs "Ten Lonely Words" and "#1 Song." The CD release show is tonight at Iota.
