Record of the Day is by one of my favorite artists, The Growlers singing “Big Toe”. I don’t know, don’t you think “The Growlers” is like the perfect name? “Big Toe” is off the 2014 album Chinese Fountain on Everloving Records. The Growlers are out of California and are known for that reverb saturated sound and psychedelic vibe that they call “Beach Goth”. They have this sort of country-folk, beach-ey garage sound and I totally dig it. The Growlers are gearing up for a big fall tour and will be playing the Exit/In here in Nashville October 6 and hosting a pretty awesomely eclectic festival after that on October 23 in Oak Park Canyon. The Growlers are Brooks Nielsen (vocals), Matt Taylor (lead guitar), Scott Montoya (drums, formerly bass) Anthony Braun Perry (bass) and Kyle Straka (keyboards, guitar).
The Growlers perform “Mama Said” by The Shirelles.
