Brooklyn’s Crumb signed to Citrus City Records ahead of their upcoming February 24 release of their self-titled EP. There has been a buzz circling around a quartet of friends comprised guitarist-vocalist Lila Ramani, bassist Jesse Brotter, percussionist Jonathan Gilad, with Brian Aronow playing some mean sax & snazzy synths. Their self-titled is an ambitious aerobics mission of keeping the chucks scuffed but the scuzz refined yet unpredictable & attention

And at three, songs Crumb conduct a soundtrack that is something that truly exists in the group’s creative universe where the listener is invited to tag along for the experience. “Bones” is the grand opener that is reminiscent of 60s exotic epics where we have the opening credit sequence that sweeps into the adventurous motorik multi-suite flight of “Vinta” that is a ride to behold, while holding on to the rollercoaster safety-bar for dear life. The come-down-easy part comes in with “So Tired” that is the ultimate send-off where Crumb rocks you to sleep with some of the coolest & sharpest arrangement ever. The band introduced us to their new EP with the following brief insightful words:

The songs, which Lila wrote sporadically throughout her last two years in college, partly draws inspiration from the infamously polluted Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, near her childhood home, which also appears in the EP art.
