San Diego’s Crocodiles have seemed primed for a breakthrough for both of their last two albums, Summer Of Hate and Sleep Forever, and they will try their hand again in June with the release of their third full-length, titled Endless Flowers. Souterrian Transmissions will be releasing the album in Europe, while in North America it will come out on Frenchkiss.
As a first sample from the effort, the band is giving the world “Sunday (Psychic Conversation #9),” which is obvious in its pop sensibilities, bigger in scope than we have previously seen the band, and a homerun on just about every level. Download the song below and look for Endless Flowers on June 5th (4th in Europe).
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet.
