I first came across CrumbSnatchers whilst listening to a playlist of popular new releases at Jamendo. The song Rubituckin had garnered its share of plays and rightfully so. I decided to listen to some other tracks from the same release. I am glad that I did because the album has had its share of listens since I downloaded it.
Big House is the 2016 release of North American band CrumbSnatchers. It is a collection of thirteen songs that evoke thoughts of youth and time spent with friends. It is reminiscent of the album Leave No Trace by Fool’s Gold but with a more urban vibe. The songs are varied in style but manage to showcase some wonderful songwriting, vocals and musical performances from the members of the band. The sound engineering does an excellent job of bringing this all together.
Do I have a favourite song? It is a difficult task. If I had to choose then it is a toss-up between four songs: Rubituckin, Reckless Breakfast, Tinfoil Friend & Damage. Each of these songs has that “loveable loser” vibe that is easy to relate to. However, each song on the album is a well worth a listen.
In conclusion, I highly recommend this album to anyone looking for some fun Indie Rock. Even if you don’t listen to a lot of Indie Rock, be sure to check out the album anyway because you might be pleasantly surprised. Be sure to head on over to their official website or Jamendo to give the album a listen.
