Crime In Choir

Crime In Choir

Omnibus

A mini-CD of driven, energetic post-rock from sunny California, six tracks of analog keys on top of repetitive but complex and layered, jazz-infused backing tracks. Like Slint approaching the urban R&B of Booker T., Crime In Choir play math-rock for TV cop shows, charged and forward-moving soundtracks to some labyrinthine chase scene. Urban angst and paranoia combine with a wide-open sound to create something that actually manages to stand out in the overcrowded post-rock climate of today. Songs like the opening “A Girl Named Jesus” and “Fleece On Fire” are instrumental adrenaline rushes that still leave room for subtlety and introspection, while there’s an eerie, creeping feel to “Worldwide CB” and “Come Here, Raider” that underlines the band’s broad register and wide scope.

Back in 2018, Lily and Generoso selected Adirley Queirós’s Once There Was Brasilia as a top ten film. That feature’s cinematographer, Joana Pimenta, has now co-directed with Queirós one of the most expansive political films we’ve seen this year, Dry Ground Burning. Lily and Generoso interviewed Pimenta at AFI Fest earlier this month.
