The formerly San Diego-rooted band Crocodiles tends to get labeled three ways: 1) Unabashed Jesus and Mary Chain disciples/rip-offs. 2) Second-tier soldiers in the 2009 lo-fi/garage-rock revival. 3) Principle Dum Dum Girl's husband's band. Fair points all around, and up until now, Crocodiles' catalog didn't do much to distinguish its creators. But on their 2013 album Crimes of Passion, primary members Brandon Welchez and Charles Rowell have finally left behind the wandering spirit and obscurant tendencies they've been shedding since their debut album. In their place are 10 tracks of focused, fuzzy, endlessly catchy pop-rock that should satisfy folks who miss the sparkling psychedelic melodies Tim Presley (White Fence) used to make with his band Darker My Love. Kudos to Welchez and Rowell for doing what good bands are supposed to do: Keep getting better. BEN SALMON
