what youth recommends pet sounds

If you live under a rock, you may have missed hearing that Brian Wilson – thee Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys – will be performing Pet Sounds in its entirety at this year’s Levitation festival, formally known as Austin Psych Fest. And in conjunction with this unprecedented experience – I haven’t decided whether this will be amazing or a complete travesty – Levitation and the Reverberation Appreciation Society are unleashing A Tribute to Pet Sounds, a 180g 2xLP, curated and produced by Al Lover, and featuring bands like Holy Wave, the Black Angels, Night Beats and many more. The limited tribute album will be available at the festival (April 29th – May 1st) and to purchase on May 27th, but ahead of its release, Levitation leaked some of the covers for an early sampling. Check ’em out.

Along with all thirteen original tracks, the tribute will also feature a cover of “Good Vibrations”, Wilson’s phenomenal hit recorded during the Pet Sounds sessions but released only as a single, and “Hang On To Your Ego”, the alternate version of “I Know There’s An Answer” released as a bonus track on the 1990 Pet Sounds reissue.

As far as tribute albums go, sometimes they suck, but sometimes they rule. And if these covers are indicative of what’s to come, I’m inclined to think this one might take the cake. –Maya Eslami
