Crooks on Tape

BRANDON WIDDER
9 pm., Monday January 20 | $8 advance, $10 day of show.
Bunk Bar
1028 SE Water Ave.
 
[SPAZZY POP] Whittling hundreds of hours of experimental, improvisational jamming into a 12-song album is like casting a wide net into the sea: You never know what you’re going to pull in. That being the case, Crooks on Tape’s debut LP, Fingerprint, is much more than the scuzzy electro-pop of opener “Duper.” The band sounds like a Frampton-Primus love child at times (“Milo’s Creeper”), a slow-burning, dour Animal Collective at others (“Summer’s End”), while retaining wavering remnants of L.A. trio’s former synth and post-punk roots, which stretch back to bands like Brainiac and Enon.
