“Not only were they the main instrumentalists on over eight releases for Robert Pollard’s Boston Spaceships, but they have also worked with big indie names such as Stephen Malkmus, the Decemberists and Elliott Smith.” Hear it HERE!
"….it’s clear that Ford’s vision for a new avenue on which to strut her sultry tunes has paid off. Slap Back is a solid extension of Ford’s well-noted laissez faire disposition, even while invoking equality empowerment with a quiver of raucous, garage-y rock tunes about love, sex and everything in between.” Read all about it HERE.
“It was actually Brooks’ [from The Growlers] idea. I was working as an unemployed actor at my apartment one evening when my roommate, Edgar Obrand, was talking to Brooks on the phone. Edgar kept saying, “Rad… Rad… Rad!!!” into the phone, which I thought was strange and totally funny. When he hung up he told me that Brooks wanted me to open up for The Growlers as a drag performer. I thought, why the fuck not? This sort of evolved from there.”

"Accurately determining where to place Fox and the Law’s latest album Stoned To Death, is a little like reading an old recipe from your grandmother, a little bit of everything and no accurate measurements; a dash of this, a pinch of that, three shakes of something, and a three drops of another thing. Fox and the Law manages to find a cohesive sound amidst a fluid pot of musical influences."

“For the past few years, the vibe has culminated in their annual Beach Goth festival, a bacchanal imagined by Growlers fans and sustained by the band’s tireless efforts to coordinate the whole damn thing. With help from the Observatory, this year has turned out to be the biggest one yet. Performers range from OC art-punk duo the Garden to pop punkers Joyce Manor and GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan.”
“Each song opens up slowly with her unique, brilliant, cinematic voice. Give this album time and an open heart, and you’ll get an album that initially seems slate grey blooming into colour. In The Seams is Saint Saviour’s best yet, and if she carries on like this, she could well become an artist far, far beyond the circles that adore her already.”
“Karrie K kicks it with Brooks of the Growlers on a new episode of Dirty Laundry. The Beach Goth-er talks Vegas acid trips, drinking a fan’s breast milk and scrapping their record with Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys.”
“Now I know a lot more and it mostly involves Brooks’ sister being hot, some sexual exploits I chose not to print, and that the band is now free of scabies and other communicable diseases (so they say). I also learned that they formed their sound in a “jocky” cave away from the outside world, which might be why their current sound, which taps into garage rock, psych, and surf, while also flirting with disco and reggae, is so broad in its influences.”
