(Jigsaw Records, PZL150)
though a new band, the members of Crabber from Hamburg, Germany have been around the block a few times, playing in bands such as the Legendary Bang, Kristallin and Dr. König Arthus since the '90s. One of their biggest influences is the Wedding Present, and though that does shine through clearly in these noisy janglepop songs, the band they actually remind me of the most is the more obscure Dot Dash, with whom they share many similarities both musically and in the overall sound and production. With a title like "Bluesbusters", Crabber's debut album is sure to brighten up your day!
Not limited. All songs written by Crabber. Available digitally on Bandcamp.
