Consequence of Sound

A self-assured sound married to self-analytical songwriting makes Jinx the masterful soundtrack to those seemingly endless, restless nights.


When everything clicks, it’s nearly impossible to not be enraptured by Jinx.

The Line of Best Fit

Crumb’s debut is a hazy celestial ballet about New York, where you feel the right amount of drunk at all times.

Slant Magazine

Though their sonic palate is monochromatic, their music is both cogent and engrossing. Jinx feels like a hallucination that proves hard to shake.


The New York City psych-rock quartet’s debut full-length beckons the listener with dreamy keyboards, twinkling guitar, and a recognizable buzz of stoic anxiety.


‘Jinx’ isn’t really a narrative anyway, more a fine assemblage in which a slightly eldritch weirdness is balanced with pop nous. It certainly feels like Crumb are on the cusp of something here.

This was a nice listen, there's not much else to say really.

This wasn't boring no, but it felt unengaging at points. Before you say anything, I don't dislike the sound, I like it quite a lot actually, it's just at certain points it feels quite well, dull. We start with quite a serene opener, Cracking, this is serenity done right, which I'll use as an example later.

Hi it's my birthday please say happy birthday
Brooklyn-based four-piece psych pop outfit Crumb's debut record finds them at a winning streak, blending ethereal, jazz-laden psych-rock into intoxicating effect. Coming through with a solid collection of EP's ( 2016’s Crumb and 2017’s Locket), they wholly captured the confident sound they are aiming for from the latter releases, with an immediate appeal instantly rewarding casual listeners and fans alike. A great record you can casually unwind on a Friday night, getting lost to ... read more
