Hung at Heart (Everloving)

The Growlers left Black Key Dan Auerbach at the production altar last winter, ditching Nashville on account of an "overcooked" assessment of their third album and retreating back to California in hopes of drumming up some psychedelic sun. Hung at Heart opens with the bright, jangly "Someday" before sliding into this whirly, reverberated abyss that bottoms out with the disorienting "It's No Use," which sounds like bad mescaline. "Use Me for Your Eggs" towers. "Derka Blues" strips bare. "Beach Rats" makes this lifestyle sound pretty rad. "Naked Kids," "One Million Lovers." Time to get on out to California.
