about

BIG CRUX – Big Crux is a Big Funk EP

A total winner! The three tracks on this EP have a MINUTEMEN and BIG BOYS influence seeping out here and there, but the inspiration derived from those bands only serves as a backdrop to an otherwise unique sound. Listening to this record conjures up an image of a few musicians who totally appreciate old R&B and rock’n’roll and original punk just jamming together for hours in a musty basement. The songs are minimalistic but clean, and the killer funk bass lines are prominent but not too funky or obnoxious slap bass shit. The lyrics, occasionally in Spanish but mostly in English, are meaningful but not obvious. The guitar licks are fantastic, and they work so well because of the solid drum fills and beats holding it all together. My hands are getting tired from flipping this thing over and over again. Top ten for sure.
