Present-Tense here giving daver a bit of a break. I’m helping to dig deep into the 2014 Coachella Music Festival lineup, featuring one band per day. The purpose of this piece is to assist in difficult decisions that inevitably you’ll need to make, as well as, serve as a fun countdown to Coachella Week. Note: All bands appear in a completely random order… Enjoy, and let the countdown begin!
Day 23 = ††† (Crosses)
Performing = Friday
It’s hard to keep up with all of the side projects of Chino Moreno, lead singer of Deftones, Palms and various other side projects. Hell, the Deftones and Palms just released albums in the last year (Koi No Yokan and Palms respectively).
Chino’s recent effort is with Shaun Lopez from the late 90s band Far and is worth a listen. Crosses’ music can be categorized a number of ways: Electronic, Alt-Rock, Post Rock, Witch House (WTF??) etc… Whatever you categorize it as it’s your business. If you like the Deftones, Far, Palms etc…you’ll probably like Crosses…oops †††.
††† (Crosses)’ EP1 and EP2 were released in 2011 and 2012 respectively and their debut was just released today February 11th 2014. The self-titled album (†††) collects everything from the previous 3 eps all on one tape/cd/vinyl which is nice.
Crosses are in small print on the Coachella band list so that probably means they’ll be playing in the Gobi at noon. Make sure you get through security quickly and stay hydrated.
To catch a peek of Crosses (†††) they are playing Kimmel tonight (2/11)
