28 Degrees Taurus

Friday, 23 October 2009

A band that deserves to be on everyone's radar is Boston's 28 Degrees Taurus. I first became aware of them as one of my former bandmates became good friends with their guitarist/vocalist, Jinsen. Before we knew it we were sharing a stage in a basement of a drag queen/cabaret club in downtown Boston. Good times. Their music (almost literally) blew me away. Still partying as hard as ever, 28 Degrees Taurus is still going strong.

Their song "Universal Love" sounds like a ethereal soundscape drawing you into a void where you could live happily ever after (if you're into that) while "Electricity" is a bit more of a rocker, with haunting vocals and blurring the edges of psychedelia...but I think my favourite track of theirs is "Wherever You Can Find It", with Jinsen and Karina sharing the vocals, it's shoegaze as its finest.

You can download both of their albums for FREE at Gimme Sound.
