This is a week with lots and lots of great music and none of it is by Thom Yorke! Anima is a bit dull if we’re being honest.

We went for the latest album by Crumb, which turned out to be impossibly hard to ignore but there’s plenty of other great music this week, which you can see below, including a new release from The Tallest Man on Earth, Daughter of Swords  and Keel Her. They’re all top notch!

Crumb is the collaboration of Brooklyn-based musicians Lila Ramani (guitar, vocals), Brian Aronow (synth, keys, sax), Jesse Brotter (bass), and Jonathan Gilad (drums).

The friends came together in 2016 with the goal of developing and recording a collection of songs Ramani had written in high school and college, the work ultimately resulting in the band’s first two EPs, 2016’s Crumb and 2017’s Locket. Encouraged by the warm reception online and at shows, the band evolved into a full time touring and recording project.

In June 2019, Crumb will release Jinx, their first full-length album and best distillation to date of their singular blend of psych-rock and jazz. On Jinx, Ramani continues to helm the songwriting, with Aronow, Brotter and Gilad each bringing distinctive ideas to match her ethereal, intimate vocals and luminous guitar lines.

Informed by two years of nearly non-stop touring, the songs sweep and swell to capture the beguiling live spirit of Crumb shows, while taking listeners one step further down the band’s dizzying, hypnotic path.
