Young Jesus is an alternative rock band from the northern suburbs of Chicago. Their sound is reminiscent of bands like The National and Titus Andronicus, but they definitely bring their own style to their songs.
They’ve been writing and playing together for the last 2 years and during this time, the band has released two EPs (Late Night Standards and Young, Innocent, & Hairy) and participated in Red Bull’s Rock the Route tour (check the YouTube webisodes here).
The band just released the new EP, Young, Innocent, & Hairy, which just happens to be available for free download here. My favorite track is Gardens. Check it out below and if you like what you hear, take the jump and grab the rest of the EP.
