3939 N Mississippi Ave.
 

[GARAGE ROCK] Cool Ghouls are born from the San Francisco garage scene that also sparked Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees. Known for its gritty guitars, heavy reverb and the occasional homage to ’60s psychedelia, Cool Ghouls undoubtedly embody that scene. Its 2013 self-titled debut showboats the band's fuzzy coolness via tight chord progressions and sunny riffs. But the Ghouls are able to transcend its trendiness and turn it into timelessness because of one key factor: They’re really, really good. There’s a certain amount of lyrical tenacity the band has mastered, mixing the bluntness of an older sister with the impulsiveness of a drunk text to an unrequited love. Unearthing truths and adhering to the catchiness makes Cool Ghouls more than just a fad.
