The Cribs – “Come On, Be A No One” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Tom Breihan / March 6, 2012 - 2:03 pm

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.
