British crunch-rock family band the Cribs, who sadly no longer count Johnny Marr as a full-time member, will soon return with their new album In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull. They recorded some chunks of it with psych-rock mastermind Dave Fridmann at his Tarbox Road studio and other chunks with scrape-rock king Steve Albini at his Electrical Audio studio in Chicago, which means they’ve assembled a pretty badass team around this new album. The track below, entitled “Chi-Town,” comes from the Albini sessions, and it sounds just as nasty as you’d expect. Download it below.
