Pick: Crocodiles

October 9
Crocodiles
The Waiting Room, 6212 Maple St.
9 p.m., $10, onepercentproductions.com

When San Diego noise-pop act Crocodiles decided to expand their enchanting mix of dreamy, ethereal pop and lacerating art-noise to epic proportions on this year’s Endless Flowers, there was only one location that made sense to record in -- Berlin, Germany. While not sonically obvious, it seems as if that city's suppressed history of camp art and cabaret lent color to Brandon Welchez and Charles Rowell’s songwriting process. The band’s cinematic production has added an end-of-the-world decadence to their songs, which flow between beauty and discordance. It’s a shoegaze/dream-pop band that folds in elements from bands like Suicide, Can, Crass and the 13th Floor Elevators, elevating their noise beyond that of many of their 80s-revivalist peers.
