Even in the past decade of ambitious musical mash-ups, disco and shoegaze were genres that rarely crossed paths. After all, it’s hard to dance to a sonic wall of reverb. But local trio 28 Degrees Taurus have injected a bit of disco strut into their trademark sound of traditional Asian folk melodies and ambient noise-rock. The yearning “Turn Me On,” the second track off this year’s All The Stars In Your Eyes, was inspired by ‘70s disco singer and porn star Andrea True (“More More More”). “We use a lot of wah in it, a lot of ‘70s porno soundtrack stereotypes,” says singer/guitarist Jinsen Liu. Could disco shoegaze be the next big thing? “I think so, it’s sexy.” Catch 28 Degrees Taurus headlining the Precinct’s half of Aug. 7’s Deep Heaven Now 19-band psych fest in Somerville, and in the meantime, grab the “Turn Me On” mp3 down below.
