San Diego-based drone-pop duo Crocodiles--comprised of Brandon Welchez and Charles Rowell (and sometimes accompanied by three other members)--met as teenagers in their local punk scene about 10 years ago. They became best friends and put out their debut album, Summer of Hate (Fat Possum), in 2009.
They released their sophomore album, Sleep Forever, on Sept. 14, 2010. The album was produced by Simian Mobile Disco's James Ford, who has also worked with the Arctic Monkeys, Florence and the Machine, and the Klaxons.
