about

Growwler California

Art rock // Power pop // Weirdo

"Their new album EVEN TENOR sounds like an army of talented musicians and producers descended upon the project to create a refreshingly rich and unique soundscape, incorporating everything from psychedelic head trips to bluesy rockers to folk-tinged melodies. It’s a big, ambitious album in an age when most indie bands are scaling back” -- The Bay Bridged ... more

Track Name: Long Hair, Short Wits
Well I can tell by the way you look that you're not really used to being a stranger
And when I recall our curious union, more like joyful terror
But the perfect woman tears you to pieces if she says the words "I love you"
So I see you kinda threw me away like a pet that outlived his master's affection
The true man wants two things: danger and diversion. So he seeks the daughter of Eve-and she's the most dangerous plaything.
But let it be known: in revenge and love, the maiden is more vicious than the man
Well I can see by the way you look
Hear bout how you partook
That you're not used to being a stranger
Taste the fake on your lips
The feel that your soul was stripped
Oooh I can really see you going nowhere
I long for a memory beyond consolation- a memory of shadows and stone.
And she keeps blowing out soap bubbles- big & large, knowing they will burst
Well I've been told that women love men even for their vices,, "but you hated me for my virtues.
But will I carry this this cup of wrath to the brim, I just might spill it
Oooh I bore my cross for you and you scorned me- side note for the record of public knowledge, why did you have to sleep with him?
But let it be known: in revenge and love, the maiden is more vicious than the man
Track Name: Song of Songs, pt. i (don’t be-long)
I don't know what I'm doing here
Young turks, so much to show, so much to fear

Heading to the party and you know I'm no good
But fair weathered friends never show in yer hood
~~
Don’t be long,
Yeah don’t belong.
Don’t be long,
Yeah don’t be-long
~~
They didn't tell us what time to show
So so sticky saying yes to a no

Greeted by a man who could not laugh
And the darling of the party was a golden calf
~~
Don’t be long,
Yeah don’t belong.
Don’t be long,
Yeah don’t be-long
~~
Trying to leave a party, oh you know its no good
But they never tell you what time you should

So I don't know why I ever came here
Hipster-fed, will fill your head so I come for the beer
Track Name: Song of Songs, pt. ii (got to be-good)
Ooh, I need a hit, Im going down

Got to feel good
(oh yes I am)
and never be bad
(oh no I don't)
that's what she said
(oh yes she did)
and you know he would

Ooh, I need a hit for mine
Track Name: Gild the Lily
There is no way for me to say just how I feel
And how can I flee, when all I see is you and me

But if you're going down, you're goin' bleed
Find somebody else
Who can see you for your insides, that's no lie
And so the girl with spotted eyes,
Just had to say goodbye

There's too much sorrow in thinking what we coulda done
Further forlorned, in all your songs I've left unsung

But if you're going down, you're goin' bleed
Find somebody else
Who can see you for your insides, that's no lie
And so the girl with spotted eyes,
Just might say surprise
Track Name: All That's Solid/melts into air
What'cha going tell me now
All I say is brother how
Are you going to say it's bad
Guess you can't see that Im glad
Were you going to send me there
Yeah, doubt you'll ever find me there
Even though I lost my mind
I know I'm fine, I just aint like the others- oh my brother
And everywhere I get a stare, It's just not fair
I know I ain't that far gone
Hell, I ain't gone
Too far gone
And it won't be long, till the know that they're wrong
Can you really say you tried
All I say is brother why
Will you say when did it go
Guess I couldn't see that it showed
Would you say to me I'm wrong
Yeah, doubt you'll ever find me wrong
And even though, I lost mind
And everywhere, I get a stare
Well, I know I ain't far gone
Track Name: Nightshade Family
Wake up in the morning Andrew
Wake up in the morning and you feel fine
