Crocodiles – Hearts of Love
09 Sep 10
Poor ol’ James Ford, first his electronic outfit’s (Simian Mobile Disco) celebathon second album didn’t do too well in the critic department, then bezzie mates/band he was once considered (almost) a member of, Klaxons, dump him in search of a more high profile producer. But much like the tubby, afro, producer version of Rocky he is, he’s picked himself up, stopped calling Klaxons, crying whilst telling them they should give it another shot, and got on with producing Velvet Underground-alikes Crocodiles debut. This taster in the form of latest promo (above derp) is a visceral euphoric buzz of grimy bass, distant reverby vocals, twinkling xylophones and enough feedback to build a wall of sound Spectre himself would be proud of. Oh and the video features the duo stabbing themselves to death and burning their own corpses, which is probably fine if your occupation is gang member, but for everyone else it might be NSFW…Enjoy!
