The Growlers have a sound so unique, they needed to name their own genre for it: “beach goth.” The California band initially got together when asked to play a house party, and they’ve been making their mix of surf-rock, Americana, and psychedelic music ever since…And, they even launched their own successful music festival, also called Beach Goth. Today, Growlers frontman Brooks Nielsen joins host Raina Douris to talk about the group’s DIY ethos. And we’ll hear a live performance from their new album, Natural Affair. That’s coming up, on an encore edition of the World Cafe.
