Unearthed Review hitting its stride again. Rather than choosing at random and being subjected to every lonely teen who thinks he’s the next Mike Skinner we’re going to work through the acts that have earned themselves a drum logo.

Today we’re having a listen to Crash the curb.

They had this to say about their music in their featured interview:

We pretty much wanted to make a band that was no bullshit with lots of energy and a bit rough around the edges. We are definitely a punk band but we try to incorporate indie rock elements similar to Pavement, Built to Spill Etc.

Never mind the bollocks, this is The Pixies before they got old and fat.

I have no higher praise than that.

The hooks might be derivative, but they’re damned catchy.

The songs are nicely paced.

There’s a sly smile to go with the punk sneer.

If you like your music turned up loud every now and then you’ll want to get downloading!

Excuse me, I’ve got to step away from the keyboard to do some pogoing.

Five stars.
