The Growlers

Are a band you haven't heard of on account of you being a non-knowing person, but if you read this you'll learn.

They're the only good thing coming out of the modern influx of "indie" music. They make real music and they don't give a shit, it's great. I came across them on a whim; I work at a venue and they played. I was doing the door that night and from outside I could hear this weird music. It sounded like if "The Dude" from the Big Lebowski played in a band.

I find it important to stress that this isn't your dad's friend's "classic rock" rehash. There's nothing old about them except their equipment. People who know nothing will say, "Oh man, I love their sound, such a 'throwback' to that real old school classic rock thing" FUCK YOU.

People who say things like CLASSIC ROCK and THROWBACK should be drawn and quartered. Those are awful terms with no real meaning or weight. Stop saying that.

But back to the Growlers: They play weird beach party music. Imagine a beach party somewhere on the Mediterranean with all these hot girls all over the place and people hanging out with sunglasses on being non-judgmental and into it if you wanna skateboard or just hang out and smoke a bowl or whatever also if you're vaguely political that's cool too.

These guys vote left and eat right. It rules. You should check them out. They have an album, "Are You in or Out?" and it rules, get it. If you ever have a chick over and you want to impress them, put it on. It will work. Girls can't hang, they think you're some closet romantic with a tough edge even though you're totally out of shape and smoke too much. This will seal the deal if she's puttin' on airs. Trust me.

A link to a song of theirs I like is on here, also don't be afraid to buy their record. That's all.
