Crabber Share Fresh Indiepop
Germany’s Crabber are making me wish I’d held off on my Best of Indiepop, as I would surely find a place for them. The group brandish a slightly noisier style in their sound; the jangles are a touch heavier, though the hooks are some of the best you’ll hear. I think it gives the band a slight bit more energy in their craft, which isn’t always a mark of the genre…so it’s a nice touch for sure. I’m also a sucker for really great vocal melodies, especially if they’re teased out over several syllables, and this album is chock-full of them. Their debut Bluesbusters just dropped via Jigsaw Records, so have it.
