The album Crimes Of Passion by Crocodiles is the paragon of lazy summer rock. Its noisy, lulling tone puts the listener into a delightfully warm, sleepy haze; perfect for warm summer evenings. It’s a bit slow for the radio, in my opinion, but the fifth and eighth songs, in particular, would fit nicely in any show playing Lo-fi tunes; said songs are “Teardrop Guitar” and “Gimme Some Annihilation”, respectively, and are of a more slightly faster pace. If you like this album, look up Splashh (the two h’s are correct!).
