New Music : The Cribs

July 17, 2007 by
Filed under: Uncategorized 

The Cribs release their third album today, the pop punk gem – Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever. Produced by Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand, it sounds like the infectious pop harmonies of Weezer combined with the unmistakable UK snarl of contemporaries like The Kaiser Chiefs or The Arctic Monkeys. The album is chock full of urgent, guitar based rockers like the current single Men’s Needs. They’re also not afraid to let their experimental hair down, as on the somewhat ironically named Be Safe, featuring a spoken voice over by special guest Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth.
