Crumb Live in Concert

Date: August 31, 2024

Time: Doors open at 7:00 PM

Location: The Concert Hall

New York psych-pop band Crumb returns with “AMAMA,” their most carefree and open-hearted album to date. This album presents a soundscape full of playful and patchwork experimentation — glitchy pitch-shifted vocals, cell phone recordings, nautical blips, sax mouthpiece solos, blasted drum samples, and piano strings dampened with Silly Putty. “AMAMA” deepens the band’s hypnotic sound, continuing the cohesive line back through 2021’s “Ice Melt,” 2019’s “Jinx,” and breakout EPs “Locket” and “Crumb.”

Crumb, consisting of singer and multi-instrumentalist Lila Ramani, keyboardist and saxophonist Bri Aronow, bassist Jesse Brotter, and drummer Jonathan Gilad, is at their most animated in this album. Ramani’s songwriting, both poetically abstract and directly confessional, culls the strange encounters from Crumb’s touring years. Tracks like “Crushxd,” “(Alone in) Brussels,” “The Bug,” and “Side by Side” highlight the band’s ability to capture both fleeting and intense moments.

Even as it explores transient stops and fraught encounters, “AMAMA” features some of Crumb’s most vulnerable and tender searches for organic connection. Songs like “From Outside a Window Sill” and “AMAMA” showcase personal and heartfelt themes. The album’s closer, “XXX,” provides a sense of respite and asks, “Isn’t this as good as it can get?”

“AMAMA” exists at the crossroads of psychedelia, pop, jazz, and rock, cementing Crumb as a band uniquely their own. Released independently on Crumb Records and produced alongside Johnscott Sanford and Jonathan Rado in Los Angeles, “AMAMA” is an incandescent statement about searching for solid ground, connection, and clarity in a life of nomadic upheaval.
