Crocodiles – ‘Crimes Of Passion’

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,...

Album review: Crocodiles – ‘Summer Of Hate’

The title sounds like the bad pun of a bad punk band inverting the whole summer of love thing; you know, the sort who base their hairstyles on a postcard from Trafalgar Square and who’ll probably go on to release an album as pompous as ‘21st Century Breakdown’.
