Roots to Grooves – Crumb

Welcome to our weekly podcast “Roots to Grooves”.
Each episode explores the music, life and careers of musical artists from their earliest beginnings through to their most recent releases.

This week musicians Jay Purcell and Jesse Quigley discuss the career and creative approaches of American indie rock band “Crumb“.

The four piece originally met in 2016 when they were attending Tufts University in Massachusetts. While continuing their studies each of the members were playing in separate bands, dabbling in Jazz, Soul and Rock before they came together to form “Crumb“. The group started off by recording two EP’s and embarking on a US tour before putting out their full length debut album “Jinx” in 2019. They have been described as psychedelic rock, dream pop and even trip hop, with some commentators likening them to Canadian outfit “Men I Trust” due to their often warm, groovy and jazzy tones.

In this episode Jay and Jesse discuss the bands’ formation, peculiar studio techniques and spin their favorite tracks from Crumb’s discography.
