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.
