Brian Crook returns, The Renderers in tow, with another set of ramshackle and fired-up ballads. There’s a lot going on across This World Just Eats Me Up Alive - particularly in the arrangements, where Crook and band appear to have taken an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach. It works, though, and the way that the band pile up guitars, theremins, synths, drums and whatever else is reminiscent of Funeral-era Arcade Fire. Ezra Furman and The Brian Jonestown Massacre also come to mind when listening to This World Just Eats Me Up Alive.
