Costa Mesa, CA 'beach goth' band The Growlers are back with a new album, 'City Club.' Is it a bar worth hopping? Watch our review to find out.
New album reviews every Tuesday!
• The Doors, Portugal. The Man, and The Strokes meet up at a Miami nightclub
• Arctic Monkeys, MGMT and The Growlers drink all night until they have The Strokes
• They keep their signature sound intact while adding some newness to it – a little colder, a little slicker
• Lyrics are good as always, weird, detailed accounts that look at the world in a unique way
• Overall sound definitely a change of pace
• Lyrics - many depictions of the club life, good, bad and ugly
• Key Tracks: City Club, I'll Be Around, Neverending Line, Speed Living
• Sometimes you can feel Julian Casablancas' input a little too much
• Lyrics are a bit too dark – it gets pretty depressing, which makes it hard to enjoy
• I'll Be Around and Blood of a Mutt got a little indulgent
