Crocodiles, Tweens, Appendixes

PETE COTTELL
10 pm., Wednesday August 06 | $10.
Bunk Bar
1028 SE Water Ave.
 

[POST-SHOEGAZE] The glut of British bands that ascended in the wake of My Bloody Valentine’s landmark record Loveless were certainly known for being noisy and heavy on texture, but let’s not forget the sharp melodies poking out from under the wall of tremulous noise. In the case of Crocodiles, you’ll be surprised to find more common ground between the San Diego duo and the latter, more pop-driven records of Ride, Primal Scream and perhaps even the Stone Roses with a blown amp or two. Last year’s Crimes of Passion is certainly a clanging, window-rattling affair, but the rattle of tambourines and major-chord guitar jangle are unmistakable relics of a far-out pop universe that’s just fine without all the buzzing.
