It’s Friday and that means another Thing of the Week. We come across a lot of interesting products, services, and ideas throughout the course of the week, and they don’t always fit into articles we’re writing for the site. Thing of the Week is the place for us to share those items, whatever they are, with you. Some of them might be what you’d expect to find at Chubstr, while some aren’t. You never know what you’ll find.
This week we’re focusing on new music, specifically music I’ve been listening to non-stop since Tuesday. ††† (Pronounced “Crosses”) is the new project from Deftones main man Chino Moreno, Far guitarist Shaun Lopez, and Chuck Doom. The sound veers quite a bit more electronic than Deftones or Far – closer to Chino’s old project, Team Sleep. I don’t know if softer is the right word, but the songs have a spacey, epic vibe to them that seems to build as they go along; a perfect complement to Moreno’s vocals.
Back in August, they released a 5 track EP that you can get for free by entering your email address below, or you can pick up the higher quality version with artwork and lyrics for $5. While there’s no date on a full length release, other sites are saying that they’ve already recorded 16 tracks and that there’s one forthcoming. Hear the songs on their Facebook page, or watch videos, and make your own remixes of their songs at their official website.
