The Growlers Play Music Hall of Williamsburg Tomorrow Night

October 10th, 2012

Brooks Nielsen (vocals), Anthony Braun Perry (bass), Scott Montoya (drums), Kyle Straka (keyboards, guitar) and Matt Taylor (lead guitar) formed the Growlers in 2006, playing their own version of slowed-down psychedelic surf pop. Their first two albums—2009’s Are You in or Are You Out? and 2010’s Hot Tropics—dealt with themes of death, but the Orange County, Calif., five-piece’s third LP, Hung at Heart, due out next month, is a less somber affair: “There is a lot of everything,” says Nielsen, “but definitely more happy songs and love songs.” The album was produced by Dan Auerbach in his Nashville studio. And the Growlers (above, doing “Acid Rain” for Dickies Sounds) play Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow night.
