More Crocodiles

Bagging Area featured San Diego's Dylan-haired, sunglasses wearing, polka dot shirted, scuzz rockers a month or so ago. They had an album out in 2010, Sleep Forever, which missed out in my end of year review because I didn't get it until a few days ago. It's good, and unusually for these times, it feels like a real album. Only eight songs long but when it finishes I just want to stick it on again. This song is Hearts Of Love, the Mary Chain influence still written large but this has melody, fuzz, tons of reverb, some warmth, good production and a huge big chorus bubbling up from the Crocodiles gutter. I like it a lot, and the other seven are just as good.
