THE GROWLERS w/ Marty Finkel, Hewn
The Growlers are a rock and pop group formed in long beach California in 2006 who are yet to became one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands in the history of popular music. During their years of stardom yet to come, the band consists of Brooks Nielson (vocals) Scott Montoya(bass guitar, vocals,), Matt Taylor(lead guitar, vocals) and Brian "don't surf" Stewart (drums, vocals). They were managed by their own alter ego Epstein until his death in 2009. Although their initial musical style was rooted in 1960s rock and roll and skiffle, the group works with different musical genres, ranging from ice flossing hip hop to psychedelic rock. Their clothes, style and statements have made them trend-setters. While their growing social awareness saw their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions. During the release of their first album and their ongoing singles releases, they have experimented with recording techniques that have the ability to bend sound in ways only drugs can. By now this "bent sound" has been perfected in their live act that some onlookers call "groovy" and or "sick". The groovy unexcelled value in Lo fidelity sound is their stock and trade. They are the result of a combination of skilled modern engineering techniques and the very finest outdated recording and amplified equipment. The Growlers sound is best exemplified through Nielson's cryptic lyrics and the relationship it has with matt Taylor. As if the two are each other's half. Though they complete each other, they compel and challenge one another in ways only the frequent growler fan can truly understand. Perhaps it is what the growler fan feels while taking part in the drug wave of bent sound. -ALEX KNOST"The archetype of a rock and roll band." - Devendra Banhart

"Surely becoming the band to see for anybody and everybody...The Growlers will rule the universe." - The World Famous KROQ

"If we were in England and they were a British group, they'd be on the cover of NME as one of the up-and-coming bands...it's a band that is going to do some damage." - LA Times

As seen with Vampire Weekend, The Black Keys, Julian Casablancas, Edward Sharpe & Magnetic Zeros, Devendra Banhart and Dr. Dog, The Growlers debut LP Are You In Or Out? and Hot Tropics EP swirl together sun and sea  boasting influences from African rhythms to Hungarian gypsy music to Zydeco, Shel Silverstein, Johnny Cash, Lee Scratch Perry-era Bob Marley, Harry Nilsson's 1971 album The Point!, One Hundred Years of Solitude, social consciousness, punks, surfers, skaters, whiskey, weed and women  in a carnivalesque pastiche for an entirely new cultural moment.
