Stream The Cribs For All My Sisters

We’ve already heard the first three singles off of the Cribs’ forthcoming LP, For All My Sisters, and today the British band is streaming their album in full a week prior to its official release date. “An Ivory Hand,” “Burning For No One,” and “Different Angle” all proved that the three Jarman brothers are toning… More »

The Cribs – “Different Angle” (Stereogum Premiere)

You tend to hear about homegrown, all-sibling bands like the Cribs beginning in earnest as teens, blasting alt and punk covers through cheap instruments. The Jarman brothers started even earlier, pantomiming Bee Gees and Queen songs on the radio before they even hit 13. It’s a stretch to say that those influences are audible o… More »

The Cribs – “Burning For No One” Video

The Cribs get shipwrecked in their new video for “Burning For No One,” the second single from their forthcoming album, For All My Sisters. The video, which was directed by Nick Scott and Andrew Knowles, follows the UK brothers after they get abandoned on an island and have to fend for themselves. They avoid any… More »

The Cribs – “I See Your Pictures Every Day”

The Cribs have shared “I See Your Pictures Every Day,” the B-side to their new single “Burning For No One.” The latter track will show up on their forthcoming album, For All My Sisters, but “I See Your Pictures Every Day” is an exclusive for the 7-inch single.

The Cribs – “Burning For No One”

The Cribs have released the first single from their sixth studio effort, For All My Sisters. The Cars’ Ric Ocasek produced the album, which explains the nostalgic dance-rock guitar line, but traces of ’80s pop are also palpable in the teaser track they released a few weeks ago. This is the first album that the… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Did nobody want to release a big, important video the same week that the Coachella lineup came out? Because there were no big, important videos this week. But there were some fun smaller ones, and we’ve got five of those below. More »

The Cribs – “Leather Jacket Love Song” Video

Leather Jacket Love Song” is an as-yet-unreleased 2010 song from UK brother band the Cribs, recorded during the period when Johnny Marr was in the band, and it’s about to show up on the band’s new career-spanning collection Payola. And the song’s new video is made up of fuzzy old camcorder footage of the band… More »

The Cribs – “Leather Jacket Love Song”

In our recent interview with Johnny Marr, the British guitar legend discussed his hired-gun relationship with numerous bands, including his time with post-Britpop rockers the Cribs, with whom he released one album, 2009’s fantastic Ignore The Ignorant, before taking off to work on solo material. Among his unreleased work with the Cribs, though, is “Leather… More »

The Cribs – “Glitters Like Gold” Video

The Cribs new reference-heavy video for “Glitters Like Gold” may indeed exhibit VHS-like production qualities on the surface, but what’s kind of novel about the video is that the Pop-Up Video insets that they co-opt link out to other clips. The pop-up graphic about Ryan liking bowling links out to a video of someone (presumably… More »

Stream The Cribs In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull

For their new album In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull, Brit-rock brother band no longer had the services of legendary guitar hero Johnny Marr at their disposal. They did, however, have some other big-name help, enlisting two of the most important producers in indie rock history. The band recorded part of the album with… More »

The Cribs – “Come On, Be A No One” Video

Brit-rock brother band the Cribs have a new video for their chunky fuzz-rock jam “Come On, Be A No One,” and it consists entirely of live and touring footage, which means it isn’t going to set the music-video establishment aflame or anything. But man, that song! That’s a fun song! Watch it below. More »

Progress Report: The Jarman brothers do whatever they damn well feel like on The Cribs forthcoming record, In the Belly of the Brazen Bull.

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

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 ma… More »

The Cribs – “Chi-Town”

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… More »

The Cribs – “Housewife” Video

The Cribs were in Grant Park this weekend, though I saw the band at a tune-up show the night before at the Cubby Lounge, at the foot of Wrigley Park in Chicago’s Wrigleyville. They took over the room after Warpaint left it breathless; and for all the times we’ve called Warpaint’s videos Lynchian, ironically it… More »

New Cribs Video – “We Share The Same Skies”

As far as wish fulfillment goes, the Jarman bros are second to nobody. Form a band, get a record deal, work with a range of producers from the eclectic (Bobby Conn) to the heroic (Edwyn Collins) to the headline making (Alex Kapranos) on the way to a commercially sustainable career with your siblings, and the… More »

New Cribs Video – “Cheat On Me”

A couple of weeks ago Zane Lowe premiered the Cribs’ “Cheat On Me,” the second track from the Brits’ forthcoming fourth album Ignore The Ignorant. At the time, as Reported, we mentioned that the quartet now includes 100% more Johnny Marr. You can sort of see this yourself in the uninspired, blurred-out performance video of… More »

Our recent Cribs Progress Report came complete with opener “We Were Aborted” (and 100% more Johnny Marr). You’ll hear Ignore The Ignorant’s second track “Cheat On Me” at Zane Lowe, if you don’t mind toggling to the 29-minute mark. More »
