It’s not often that a Facebook suggested band peeks my interest, but every now and then, something rad comes through. Most recently this has come forth in the form of Anakin, a rock band hailing from San Diego who have a rad sound and a killer vibe. The band produces rockin’ tunes with elements of electronics not unlike Idiot Pilot.
Anakin will release their new album Radio Transmission Failure next month, but to tide people over until that release, the band has unloaded a touching tribute to one of rock’s most beloved bands: The Beach Boys. Anakin tackle two of the bands most popular songs off of the legendary Pet Sounds album. The tracks covered are “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” and “God Only Knows,” the later of which is my favorite song from The Boys.
These songs are honorable and uplifting and I think they’ve crushed it. Check out the tracks below and maybe grab a download. It’s only two bucks. Get at it.
