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.

Pitchfork

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.

I loved "Locket" so I was interested in where their debut was gonna go. What I got was a short but sweet record with beautiful production and a lazy vibe that's very admirable and very easy to relax to. Overall, "Jinx" is a great recommendation for casual listeners who want something to vibe with and for those sound fanatics, like myself, who've been craving to scratch that psychedelic itch.

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

Crumb is the band you find in college that you and all your friends vibe to while putting off studying. Jinx, their debut album, is very committed to a downtempo, slacker rock style, and it pays off with an enjoyably lazy, occasionally intoxicating record. These songs are like quick little dreams from an afternoon nap, with very little boundary between them. The guitars are strung out and dreamy, complimented by simple drumming, light synths and hazy singing from lead singer Lila Ramani. ... read more

(First Impression): The main problem I have with this album is that it fails to really elevate itself from anything else that Crumb has already released. The timidness can be felt in this one. Instead of playing into their strengths- which to me is when they place emphasis on the 'psychedelic' part of 'psychedelic rock'- it shy's away from the psychedelic feel which made Crumb so refreshing- especially in the first half of the album. However, I thought the second half was very solid and ... read more
