Having released their over-the-top debut EP at the end of the summer, Senile Crocodile are aiming to show—through noodling guitars and winding vocals—what they have to offer. The self-titled four-track album is confident from its getgo, never slowing down or taking a breath, and using blistering guitar riffs to elevate normally simplistic guitarpop songs to arena-level rock. There are elements of psych in Senile Crocodile, but its as if their version of that smoked-out sound got a little over-excited in the pressure cooker and grew into refined garage rock. The highlight of the EP is the unforgiving guitar riffs that, though they meander and fall into the occasional overwrought guitar solo, are thoroughly triumphant in bringing each song to its expressive height. This is music for fans of both Battles and Thee Oh Sees.
