The Cribs - In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull

Last month, we posted “Chi-Town,” the new track from brotherly Brit-rock axe-wreckers the Cribs. Steve Albini engineered that one, and it had the punishing, scummy intensity that that particular knob-twiddler is so legendary for conjuring. But the Cribs’ new album In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull also features production from Dave Fridmann, the man partly responsible for expansive psych-rock masterpieces from bands like the Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev. “Come On, Be A No One,” the track streaming below, still has plenty of crunch-pound to it, but it’s also got a mile-wide melodic streak. Stream it after the jump.

In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull is out 5/8 on Wichita.

  1. I just wee’d myself a bit (again)

  2. It’s exciting enough to have a new Cribs record (though the Marr record didn’t do much for me except for Cheat On Me and a couple others…and Housewife was great), but the ancillary benefit is watching Ryan Jarman do publicity for a new record. Dude is the funniest guy in the music business.

  3. If the first two tracks are anything could go the new long player could be up there with Men’s Needs and the New Fellas! Albini’s taken them to the next level. I met Jarman outside a pub in Shoreditch last year and despite being bloody nice, oozed rock n roll cool.
