About the New LP Natural Affair 
Led by singer Brooks Nielsen and music director/guitarist Matt Taylor, The Growlers released their most recent album, Natural Affair, late last year to critical acclaim on their own Beach Goth Records and Tapes (October 25, 2019). Natural Affair advances the band’s swampy DIY aesthetic into their sturdiest, synthiest, warmest sound yet, bolstered by Nielsen’s finest lyrics to date: social commentary, rhymes, and ruminations on the pleasures (and perils) of modern love.  Listen to the album HERE.
