Crocodiles - 'Crimes Of Passion'

Album Info

  • Release Date: August 19, 2013
  • Label: Zoo Music
7 / 10 San Diego’s Crocodiles have been treading the line between darkness and light since their 2009 debut, ‘Summer Of Hate’. This fourth full-length is another fizzy, fuzzy, monochrome mash-up of The Jesus And Mary Chain, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Raveonettes. It was produced by the latter’s Sune Rose Wagner, and his stamp is all over these 10 songs, especially the sleazy guitars of ‘Virgin’ and the ironically titled lilt of ‘Heavy Metal Clouds’. An album of washed out, happy-sad, semi-psychedelic sounds that glower as much as they gleam, it’s perfect for those 3am mornings when you’re full of alcohol and regret.
