Ocean Blue

As you may know, this year veteral alt-pop band The Ocean Blue released Ultramarine, their first new album since 1999. The record is a nice return and the band's signature, dreamy/melodic sound still plays well in 2013. You can stream the whole thing below.

The band played two sold-out shows at Mercury Lounge back in May and are doing more shows this year including a return to NYC for their last show of the year at Bowery Ballroom on December 21. Tickets for that show go on AmEx presale today (9/18) at noon with the public on-sale starting Friday (9/20).

All dates are listed, along with the album stream, below...
