For their sixth studio album, Natural Affair, The Growlers continue their streak of distinctly California-cool rock that effortlessly marries the feelings of both sunny beaches and late-night dance parties. As DJ Troy Nelson puts it, the band is “California as f*ck.” After years of throwing one of the hippest festivals on the West Coast, Beach Goth Party, the band is expanding the brand into a label called (what else?) Beach Goth Records and Tapes, with Natural Affair as their first release.

Troy Nelson goes on to give some background on the history of the Growlers while the band plays a few songs from the new record.
