It's not the kind of jam you can instantly "vibe" with, being all heavy (I'm talking in terms of actual weight here) and smacked out and kind of remote, but once that instant's passed and them tremulant synths are creeping in over the fluctuating bass, shit gets pretty earworm-y pretty quick. This is a massive track; it smothers your eardrums in bass and ecstatic buzz and some sublime falsetto vox. Crumbs is the solo project of Max Kohane, who's previously scored a win with Brain Children, his collaboration with Eddy Current Suppression Ring's Mikey Young. This track's taken from Pieces & Portions Vol. 2 (both volumes can be downloaded for free from his Bandcamp page), presumably offcuts from his production work with acts like Catcall and Agents of Abhorrence, but don't let that put you off: this is some stellar shit from a seriously talented dude.
