"I overheard a number of people remarking how they knew they’d just seen their favorite set of the weekend, then there were the others who just trotted past with the contented shit-eating grin you only get when you’ve had your pants damn near ripped off by the rock and roll canon that is Fox and The Law."

“Who loves The Growlers? We do. Who else loves The Growlers? Everybody else. That’s why announcing information like this is an easy job, because all you little growlin’ howlers are gonna eat it up like apple pie.”
“You’re super popular in Mexico. Why do you think your sound has done well there? Cause we love Mexico and we’ve spent a lot of time there growing up. Surfing and partying. It’s been a giant influence on me.”

“But digging deeper reveals an impressive eclecticism—from the melted guitar spasms of “Downer” to the spiraling, dual-guitar break on the lovely “Pac Ambition,” from the doo-wop churn of “Patsy” to the classic-rock chorus of “Something Else.” There’s a playful sense of exploration on Saturnalia Regalia!, as the band saunters haphazardly through styles and tempos—all of them glued together by a stoned smirk.”
