Album Info

  • Release Date: July 9, 2012
  • Producer: Dave Fridmann
  • Label: Wichita
  • Fact: The 'pop-up' video for 'Glitters Like Gold' was created by Andy Knowles and Stephen Agnew
?It’s heartening to see that, even sans Johnny Marr, the Jarman clan have retained some more sophisticated Smithsian DNA in their blueprint. Of course, what with The Cribs being The Cribs, their brand of subtlety still boasts snarling feedback, amps being bulldozed into submission and a drunken bellow of a chorus. Which is a mighty fine thing.
