Hung At Heart

The Growlers


“WHEN THEIR LONG-AWAITED, DAN AUERBACH PRODUCED PROJECT WAS INDEFINITELY SHELVED, THE GROWLERS STRUCK OUT ON THEIR OWN TO CUT SOMETHING MORE TRUE TO FORM: A GARAGE ROCK LP WITH A NAME THAT SOUNDS LIKE THE PUNCH LINE TO A DIVE BAR DICK JOKE. ENTER HUNG AT HEART, DUE THIS. HIGHLIGHT "ONE MILLION LOVERS" IS A FIRST TASTE OF WHAT THE BAND CONCOCTED AT THEIR COSTA MESA WAREHOUSE/ COMMUNE-CUM-STUDIO.THEIR RETRO VIBE ISN'T FETISHIZED NOSTALGIA — IT'S DUMPSTER-DIVING FREEGAN COLLAGE: PITCHY ORGAN AND PLUNKY, COUNTRY-WESTERN BASS ARE PUNCTUATED BY FAUX-DUB ECHOES THAT HANG LIKE TAPESTRIES IN A CHILL-BRO DEN WHILE VOCALIST BROOKS NIELSEN'S CROOKED FLOW PLOPS DOWN ATOP THE HODGEPODGE AS THOUGH HE WERE DELIVERING A SIDE-EYED MANTRA.” -- SPIN
