Crumb
10 All Time Favs
Since their debut »Jinx« in 2019, Crumb have been considered the next big thing in music. Some even declared them as the successor of Tame Impala. Now their new album »Ice Melt« is out. The perfect opportunity to ask Lila Ramani, Brian Aronow, Jesse Brotter and Jonathan Gilad about 10 vinyl records that have shaped, improved and educated them. The answers are as varied as their music itself.

THEESatisfaction
Ain't no stopping these two
ESG is one of their addictions. They read Afro Sci-Fi novels, were passionate about weird art and they describe themselves as »Empresses of Time« from a »pre-Egyptian Dynasty«. With THEEsatisfaction is another great Hip Hop act coming from the creative environment of Shabazz Palaces. The futuristic hip hop of »AwE NaturalE«, their debut album, surely is just the stepping stone to the couples grand scheme.

Beach House
Depression Cherry
The Beach House is no place for showmanship. On »Depression Cherry«, Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally have found their way back to simplicity made of melodies.

Shabazz Palaces
Lese Majesty
A record like a total work of art: After his debut »Black Up«, Shabazz Palaces has put together seven mini-suites to compose his second album »Lese Majesty«. It’s dry and minimalistic, simmering gloomily.

Beach House
Bloom
The album booms with tantalizing intimacy, allowing the listener to peek through the key-hole of a memory-filled room but never inviting them in.

Shearwater
Animal Joy
This record could be the breakthrough for Jonathan Meiburg and his band Shearwater. Although our reviewer is still not quite sure whether that’s a good thing.

Memoryhouse
The Slideshow Effect
Natural, warm and elaborate. One piece leads to the other, one track glides over to the next; everything is floating on the debut of Memoryhouse from Canada.
