28 degrees taurus vs. the carpenters
jinsen liu - guitars, vox

28 degrees taurus is an ambient/psychedelic rock band from Boston
Our musical ideals are somewhere between the late 60s, early 90s and all the gorgeously catchy cheese inbetween.
We've been together since about 2005 with various drummers.
We're usually loud as hell but not above playing an occassional ballad.
As a band we party pretty fucking hard... on the road and at home.
We have 2 full length records so far and 1 ep
Theres alot more to come... hopefully a new one by mid 2009
Thanks for listening.

here's the extended version of our bio:

28 degrees taurus was formed in early spring – summer 2005 when friends Jinsen Liu and Barry Marino got together and started performing around the Boston area as a duo. The early shows started off as high energy, psychedelic freaks featuring the duo on guitar/vocals & drums respectively. This configuration evolved and solidified into what the band is currently when Jinsen’s best friend and cellist in his other ambient/experimental band “red skies” took up bass and joined him up front on vocals as well. The primary influences on the band’s writing around that time period came from 80s era sonic youth, early 90s neo-psychedelia as well as late 60s/70s pop. The band toured extensively over the east coast and mid-west during the next two years (2006-2007) and began getting some attention and press in the re-emerging ambient/post-psychedelic scene especially along the east coast. Their live set was an open ended set of party anthems, 60s revivalist idealism, romantic love ballads as well as atmospheric ambient instrumentals… most with a touch of eastern sounding reverb drenched ambience. The group’s 1st record, released and promoted throughout the entirety of 2007, was a 17 song compilation sampler cd entitled “aquarian love” featuring most of the band’s then live set. Sonicly, however, the first record tended towards a much cleaner, pop oriented, less psychedelic sound than the group’s live shows did. The group continued their relentless touring schedule throughout the 2007 year and in parallel to that worked sporadically over the course of the same year in 3 different studios with just as many producers before finishing an ep and another 2nd full length record “how do you like your love?” in 2008. The recent cd earned them the attention of much of the local Boston press which can be found at
