Mod-A-Day: Julie Ocean

Ringing guitars. Thundering drums. Cool vocal harmonies. Washington DC scenesters Julie Ocean had it all for a few short months. The band dropped their criminally underrated --because it should have topped the Billboard Charts if there was any justice in this world-- album, Long Gone and Nearly There, in early '08 and by the end of the year they were defunct as a band. Too bad because Julie Ocean had a really great power pop sound and could have gone places.
