Big Jesus have the kind of name that will make you think you will absolutely hate their music. It suggests something Christian and Gospel-y. And not that underhanded “we’re Christians in a band, not a Christian band” type of group but the “have you heard the good news about Jesus Christ” type of group.

Thankfully, the band doesn’t seem to have any proselytizing agenda beyond making us fans of of their atmospheric rock & roll.

While Big Jesus certainly has a contemporary feel, the Atlanta based group sound like all the best things that came out 90s alt-rock:  groove-heavy drum hits, poppy lead vocals, and emotive chord progressions packed with distortion. Friday, July 14,
