"And you tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake… You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love."
Warsan Shire, For Women Who Are Difficult To Love (via versteur)

"So called ‘late-bloomers’ get a bad rap. Sometimes the people with the greatest potential often take the longest to find their path because their sensitivity is a double edged sword- it lives at the heart of their brilliance, but it also makes them more susceptible to life’s pains. Good thing we aren’t being penalized for handing in our purpose late. The soul doesn’t know a thing about deadlines."

The Growlers - Chinese Fountain
Sun-soaked, booze-filled, or reverb infused psychedelic surf rock are all words that have at some point been used to illustrate the indescribable but oh-so amazing sound of The Growlers. Call it what you want, but they’ve proven to keep their audience entranced and excited to hear what they’ll come up with next. Having already given the world four previous albums and several demos from their early days, the five members bring us Chinese Fountain, an eclectic but all too groovy rendition of their new perspective and growth as a band.
Brooks’ vocals show up quickly in the opener “Big Toe”, proving that his voice only gets better with each cigarette drag. Caught off guard by the entrancing melody and guitar riff of the next track, “Black Memories”, the words “oh fuck!” came out of my mouth (meant in the best way possible) and what ensued was bliss induced non-stop swaying and grooving. And the rest as they say, is history… Try to sit still and not dance to “Chinese Fountain”. I dare you.
If you continue listening to each song you’ll find a melting pot of sounds that they’ve somehow managed to fuse so well together to form this album. A little bit of disco, an incredible use of the synthesizer, maybe a little bit of reggae (in “Going Gets Tuff”), a hint of some western vibes (in “Magnificent Sadness”) that might give you the urge to surf with a cowboy hat on and a sense of nostalgia thrown in for good measure. Even the words are so effortless with lyrics about lovers and lines like “Love isn’t easy as it seems”, “You’re never too young to feel” and “Worry’s a bully that just won’t let me be”.
Sure, this album is different than their past work and some may even argue that it’s a bigger sound, but the essence and foundation of who The Growlers are is ever present and alive: the effortless rhythm and guitar twang, rough but melt-worthy vocals and the ability to put you in the most hypnotic trance that makes you want to sway from side to side forever. That’s the thing with this band—you never know what’s coming next, but if you can be sure of one thing, it’s that you’ll have a good time.
They seem to effortlessly embody a certain indescribable magic that can’t be explained no matter how hard you try. So what exactly does Chinese Fountain sound like? I’ll stop throwing out adjectives and give it to you straight… I don’t know what happened in the duration of those forty minutes, but what I do know is that I liked it and I’m going to continue to embrace it.
If you find yourself unsure of your feelings of this album upon first listen, I suggest you lighten up, grab a beer and a lover, head to the beach and give it another chance for the melodies and sunshine to soak in. Dance a little (or a lot) and thank me later.
Chinese Fountain is out today (September 22) on Everloving Records.
