For those who haven't been keeping count this is Crocodiles 6th LP. Where does the time go eh? The title refers to a condition close to Phil's heart - insomnia. And despite their lack of sleep the duo have come up with a collection of perky collection of piano 'n' synth tunes. Certainly the track I'm listening to sounds a bit like New Order. I'm happy with that.
Crocodiles are a Californian crew of indie / noise pop makers, and here they can be heard previewing their newest record, Boy. Foolin' Around is a sharp little track, driven by a bassline that could have appeared on a disco record in another life. The B-side is a Spanish language version of same. Limited 7" single.
Boys is the fifth album by psych-pop band, Crocodiles. Not content with sitting still, the band's love of travel saw them jetting to Mexico City to record their new album with producer Martin Thulin. Their surroundings have influenced this colourful record adding Latin influences to a sound that perfectly straddles the divide between the trashy and beautiful.
What a pleasure to pick up this new 7” single from Crocodiles and find that ‘U Sexy Thing’ isn’t just an ironic nod in the title, but an actual cover of the groovy Hot Chocolate classic. The band play it sincerely, but their noisy guitar-punk style gives it a whole new lease of life. Oh, and the actual single, ‘Crybaby Demon’, on the A-side too.
