I was a bit disappointed to hear that Denton 5-piece Oceanographer had broken up. They always struck me as a viable prospect with their airborne melodies and soft instrumentation being the perfect come down after a tough day at the coalface. They were not unlike fellow Texans Explosions In The Sky yet they peppered their instrumental creations with the softest of words. The words in question were uttered by one Jeremy Yocum and he and another ex-Oceanographer Eric Elterman have just gone and formed a new alt-country collective based out of Brooklyn. The good news is that Yocum’s Rounders are pretty good, not a million miles away from his previous endeavour in that they are perfectly hushed. Hard to keep a good man down I suppose. KD

This is good stuff! Thanks!
Thinks it’s interesting to see this artist evolve.
