Although I wasn’t the biggest fan of Crocodiles’ debut LP, Summer of Hate, I enjoyed it enough that I was curious to see how the San Diego-based duo would evolve.  I’m pleased to report that “Sleep Forever” – the title track of their forthcoming sophomore LP – is not only a step forward for the band, it’s also the best song they’ve recorded to date.  Charles Rowell and Brandon Welchez have effectively gone hi-fi – trading in their JAMC buzzsaw fuzz for Spiritualized’s sky-scraping grandeur.  Like J. Spaceman, they’re tapping into that sweet spot where white noise feels like white light.

Sleep Forever is out 9/14 on Fat Possum.
