CRUNCHBIRD: Shit Happens: CD

Jaime Robert Johnson has been crafting what he describes as “deviant noise” under the Crunchbird moniker since 1988. Every song on Shit Happens is distinct, with Johnson’s vocals and some great-sounding fuzzy guitar tones as the only common threads running through this otherwise very different-sounding collection of songs. There was something new for me to appreciate with each repeated listen. This new album is a great introduction to Crunchbird, before diving into the rest of their more obscure catalog. –Paul J.
