Mr. Crumb – “Where Have You Been”
from Fun with Venison
released 26 April 2012
Christopher Crumb adopted a childhood nickname as his recording persona, and released Fun with Venison earlier this year. On this first full-length studio album, Mr. Crumb demonstrates a remarkable command of songwriting, penning tunes that balance influences of power pop, jazz, psychedelia, and euro-folk. Fun with Venison meanders like a jaunt through a city, taking in all of the sites and keenly observing all that happens along the way.
