Every so often, we’ll get e-mails at 8Asians from artists and bands asking us to pimp their music, and every so often I agonize whether or not whether to blog about them, especially if their music sucks. (Note to those who HAVE sent e-mails asking me to pimp your band: I’m not talking about your stuff: Your band is awesome. I’m talking about the other e-mails I get. Really.)
Thankfully, Tim Be Told‘s From the Inside EP is awesome; this Charlottesville, Virginia rock band has soul, pop and gospel elements, and while a front man does not a whole band make, the band has a powerhouse in songwriter and lead vocalist Tim Ouyang. Think Adam Levine from Maroon 5, but with more Jesus and less creepy videos where he’s making out with white girls. Their From the Inside EP ($8.99) is available for MP3 download on Amazon.
