We’re happy to let all of you know of another great release by good friend of Ember, Austin TX’s Gabriel Sandoval, aka Cruxes. This is his first solo release in quite a while and it’s got a fantastic mix of ambient, electronic and alt-rock.
Here’s some info in Gabe’s own words:
“Today I’m releasing my first solo record in years. It’s an instrumental post-rock record under the name CRUXES. I recorded all of this over the course of the last 4 months, but some of the songs are over 2 years old now and came as sketches that I then fleshed out piece by piece.
It’s FREE, so go grab it and let me know what you think!
There are 9 songs on the record and along with the download you’ll get a piece of artwork that I made for each song. As the year goes by, I hope to come back to the project…maybe doing a live show or getting myself and friends to put vocals over the tracks. I’ll also be releasing more projects under different names since I have several that are almost completed. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to collaborate on anything musical, visual, or otherwise!”
So, please if you dig sounds like Sigur Ros, The Pixies and Brian Eno, you’ll definitely want to give “Crux” a listen.
