Amoeba Review

08/19/2013

San Diego's Crocodiles go glam on their latest album, Crimes of Passion. Brandon Welchez sings of "liking it in the dark" over a jaunty rocker full of classic riffs, a bouncing piano line and soulful backup vocals. Their new, more clarified sound (with production help courtesy of The Raveonettes' Sune Rose Wagner) may throw some listeners used to their waterfalls of reverb and distortion, but the songs are strong enough to handle the added scrutiny of clearing out the noise. "Marquis De Sade" surfs on a crisp shoegaze melody and dreamy chorus. "Teardrop Guitar" has a terrifically distorted riff leading the charge down a psychedelic rabbit hole. "She Splits Me Up" dances around with chiming guitars and paisley harmonies till you're dizzy. It’s a gorgeously noisy set, hanging together with better production and a clearer focus than ever shown before by Crocodiles.
