Crumb is a Brooklyn-based four-piece fronted by Lila Ramani that have become indie darlings over the past four years. Their first two EPs came out in 2016 and 2017 and served as an introduction to their jazzy + psychedelic indie pop. The word-of-mouth success of these EPs soon led to a fast-growing audience and demanding tour schedule. This past June they unveiled their debut full-length album titled Jinx to continued critical and popular acclaim, and they'll be launching a massive US tour in September in support of the record, with a stop at Neumo's on September 29th.
Their exclusive (and rare!) guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a prime example of their eclectic sound as they dip into their deep record collections to share some of their faves, covering classic folk, hard rock, mainstream hip-hop, timeless R&B, and more diverse gems along the way.
