Back in May I caught up with My Radio, a band from my hometown Roanoke, VA, and interviewed them before their show. If you haven’t heard of them yet, you will soon. Their single, “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah” was featured in
the independent film The Joneses staring Demi Moore and David Duchovny. It was also featured during Fox’s Sports Halftime, MTV calls them a “needle in the haystack” and they are working on getting a new CD out. If you want to give ’em a listen, you can find them on MySpace, iTunes, YouTube and if you’re feelin ’em go ahead and fan them on Facebook. Either way, you should check My Radio out.
Here’s the My Radio Interview.
Got an e-mail today from Plus Move with this remix attached. Now, everybody, “Enjoy this funky love groove!”

Also, for the comment left by Mary, here is the proper university website.
Finally! The new E.P. from the much acclaimed artist Jesus Christ! As many of you know, J.C. supposedly consists of Carles and Tao Lin from the popular hipster website HipsterRunoff.com. I think that this song is really a leap forward for so many independent basement chillwave artists who are trying to reach the “mainstream” indie community with a song that will both inspire and confuse, for it has done both for me!
Yes, it is true, their band name is Jesus Christ. I for one, find this particularly hilarious because of the stupid amount of backlash that it will hopefully (for the “band”) generate in their favor.
As many (none?) of you know, I am a religion major who is not offended by much (I claim nothing, but my life isn’t over yet) and this “band” is headed into the not offended pile as well. So, if any of you are truly and deeply offended by this post, please, do not be afraid to tell me……. Oh, and here is the song.
Jesus Christ – Is this really what you want?
