“Best of 2012...  the best track you’ll hear all year about a collections agent who uses the name of a Hall of Fame baseball player as an alias.”  

—The Bay Bridged


“Oceanography manages to carve out its own sound, aided by Brian Kelly’s distinct vocals that recall the manic crooning of Suede’s Brett Anderson and Ian McCulloch of Echo & the Bunnymen.” 

— East Bay Express

 “The temperament of the band on “Napoleon Holiday” reminds me of the great Pavement album “Slanted and Enchanted.” That ain’t bad company. Kelly’s voice in particular cuts through and leaves quite an impression.” 

— Music on The Goe


“Oceanography could be described as the best of what rock has offered in the last 20 to 40 years.”  

— This is Book’s Music


“epic live performance.”
