STREAM TURN TO CRIME’S NEW ALBUM, ACTIONS

OUT APRIL 28TH ON MUGG & BOPP

HEADLINE TOUR BEGINS NEXT WEEK

Turn To Crime’s new album, Actions, is currently streaming in full via Brooklyn Vegan ahead of its April 28th release on front man Derek Stanton’s own Mugg & Bopp label. Opener “This Is What You Wanted” sounds like the sun rising over a strange planet. The song “Actions” is a stately-paced rumination on the less savory aspects of living in a supposed New Detroit with a matter-of-fact exhortation to “cut off your hands,” while its counterpoint “Prince of Slackers” bops like a classic rock song on klonopin. “Feels Right” unfolds like the epic closing song from some wrongfully forgotten 1980’s film. With its sawing synths and skyscraping guitars, “Feels Right” perfectly concludes an album that, over its seven songs, truly feels like a journey. From the ambient opening through the last echoed chords, the seemingly lost art of an album as a complete statement is in full bloom here.

Having just wrapped up a sold out run of shows with Modest Mouse, Turn To Crime hits the road next week for some headline dates. A full list is below.

“Turn To Crime stand alone… Actions…[is]…the next stage in an imaginative evolution… Buoyed by a lilting keyboard line, the chugging guitars are reminiscent of Guided By Voices while the downcast vocals have an Anglophile quality.”
