The Crocodiles

Who: The Crocodiles

Hail From: San Diego, California

Label: Pat Possum Records

Active from: 2008 to current

Sounds like:
Reverb loving garage rock of The Velvet Underground

There is a thick layer of reverb gravy oozing all over this band's music. They feel like something out of the late 70's early 80's. The music is at the same volume as the vocals so that they are almost another instrument. They aren't drowned out like My Bloody Valentine but it does have it's MBV moments. The 1st LP Summer of Hate was released in April of 2009. Opener "I Want to Kill" and title track "Summer of Hate" are 2 of the strongest tracks on the album.

The Crocodiles - Summer of Hate

The Crocodiles - I Want to Kill

The Crocodiles are playing with Holy Fuck at Mohawk in Austin, TX on June 11th for $8.
