10 Songs, 30 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The Strokes’ Nick Valensi's migration from New York to Los Angeles manifests itself in both heavier sound and subject matter on his solo project, CRX. New Skin is fueled by a twin-guitar power-pop attack that will feel familiar to Strokes fans, yet balanced by a touch of metal (“Walls,” “On Edge”). Producer Josh Homme gives the New Skin a sturdy foundation—guitars are crisp and curling, bass firmly in pocket, and cymbals mic’d so nice you can almost feel the pulsating air tickle your eardrums.

I'm digging the vibes on these 2 tracks! Nick Valensi is stepping out into the spotlight and I love it. Can't wait to hear the whole album.
