Thou “Summit”

Thou has become almost-legends in the stoner-metal-sludge-doom genre.  Formed in ’05 in Baton Rouge, they have put out more than a dozen releases on almost as many labels, always with spectacular artwork and usually in limited pressing.  Their shit sells quick so if you aren’t already a collector it would be hard to become one now.  I first became a fan with their 10″ “Malfeasance/Retribution”, which has a song called, “The Severed Genitals of Every Rapist Hangs Bleeding From These Trees.”  I mean, that just goes straight to the heart of my political sentiments.

Lucky for all of you in Denver, new fans of Thou or old, I have several copies of their 2010 full length, “Summit.”  I’m the only store in Denver selling it right now.  I have the version released by Southern Lord (as opposed to the version from Gilead).  And if you want a very articulate write up about the musical brutality and genius contained therein, check out this article from NPR.

About Growler Distro

Growler Distro, or Growler Record Store, are the same thing: a project aimed at selling records, tapes, CDs, CDRs, zines, books, and cool handmade trinkets in Denver, CO, which I'm proud to say is my home. My name is Molly and I've been tabling at punk shows since 2006 and now I'm expanding to a brick and mortar shop at 742 Santa Fe Drive. (Days and hours TBA) I've always loved underground music for it's freshness and honesty and I want you to feel like you can discover a gem as well. I believe that music brings people together much like a well-prepared meal can. And, I think that underground music and literature often talk about the things in life most important to you, whether that be disenchantment with the state of things or a truly broken heart. I carry a lot of different styles of music, so don't limit yourself to one definition of what underground or punk might mean to you. Growler Record Store has music for quiet, contemplative rainy days, dance parties, and even for the apocalypse. I have music made by women, queers, people of color, and in many different languages. You will find your voice as expressed by talented musicians, just the way it was meant to be. And you will likely leave feeling inspired by and connected to your fellow humans. How to find me: growlerdistro@riseup.net and growlerdistro.tumblr.com
