It's official: Tao Lin is a polymath . . . All hail! "Jesus Christ." (the indie band)!
Tao Lin is widely regarded as the Poet Laureate of Generation Y. Carles from HIPSTER RUNOFF blog is widely regarded as the subconscious voice of Generation Y. These two influential voices have come together to form "Jesus Christ." (the indie band).
This is not a band--this is a sound project. Tao and Carles are looking to capitalize on emerging music + audio media markets. The product is intended to be something that you can 'authentically empathize with', more so than a traditional 'indie band.'
"Jesus Christ." (the indie band)'s tentatively titled Is This Really What You Want? EP is 'slated' for a Fall release. The two childhood friends spent 1 month recording the EP in Tao's studio apartment. The EP is a soundscape journey through the challenges of a modern relationship. It will be available digitally, physically, and emotionally.
