Crumb's second album, Ice Melt, takes its name from the coarse blend of salts that you can buy from your local hardware store for $9.99. When sprinkled on your wintry steps, this mixture absorbs water and gives off heat, transforming the ice into a viscous, briney slush and, eventually, nothing at all. Beginning with the dynamic chaos of 'Up & Down,' and ending with Crumb's closest thing to a lullaby, Ice Melt' s ten tracks combine, like ice sculptures melting into a glistening puddle. From the start, the group knew that cohesion was best achieved through plumbing their individual strengths- frontwoman Lila Ramani's earliest songwriting, which catalyzed the group's first two EPs; Bri Aronow's knack for building (dis)affecting soundscapes; the hypnotic grounding of Jonathan Gilad's drums, a Crumb mainstay; and Jesse Brotter's distinctive bass playing, which subtly traces Ramani's vocal melodies while providing an unrelenting pulse. These collective skills make Crumb a project of independent self-discovery, four creative minds converging around an idea that is always shifting and reforming. Convening in Los Angeles to work with producer Jonathan Rado, Crumb tapped into atmosphere-creation like never before, building experimental compositions that are at turns head-nodding and surrealist, energetic and euphoric. Ramani characterizes the album as a 'return back down to earth,' a deeply felt examination of 'real substances and beings that live on this planet.' It is also the cultivation of road-worn musicians exploring brand-new sounds and thematic concepts, pushing themselves into territory they could never have anticipated five years ago.
