What local artists are listening to



”Right now, I'm pretty into Chino Moreno's side project, †††, aka Crosses. I've always loved Chino's vocals, from the Deftones to his Dance Gavin Dance guest work, but I really feel these latest two EPs. I feel like it's more broad than something Deftones might come out with. And I've been getting more and more into Portishead's Dummy. It's such a good album and Beth Gibbons' vocals give me the chills. Beautiful.”
