Week Ender – Crossroad Crooks

The Omega to the Week Starter Alpha, Week Ender is the song we want to send you swaggering into the weekend with.

Ooooooo doggie, does “In Waiting” by Crossroad Crooks scratch a very specific itch from our youth and it does so really, really well. Like when there’s just the right amount of fingernails in the scratching but not so much to leave a weird mark you have to explain later. That itch is a specific nexus of hard rock, heavy alternative and grunge with hints of metal and heaps of melody. Chuggy guitars and soaring vocals and delicate break downs place this somewhere between Living Colour (the vocals remind us a lot of Corey Glover) and Soundgarden. Some may feel this has a bit of a throwback vibe to it, but when it’s done this well it transcends throwback and moves on up to transcendent and timeless.
