The Fucking Ocean - Le Main Rogue


The Fucking Ocean make disjointed but groove heavy post-punk cut from the same cloth as bands like Black Eyes, and to some extent, Deerhoof. Hyper aggressive music with fun sing-a-long choruses and some very interesting song structures. A welcome alternative to the paint-by-numbers indie rock that bands have been churning out for the past couple of years. I'm not sure if these guys (and a girl too, I think) broke up or what, but as far as I know this 2006 record was their last release. It's too bad, I'd love to hear this band continue to move forward and develop their sound.
