If watching the Grammys the other night made you nostalgic for the Beach Boys halcyon days, you’re not the only one. Yesterday, Pete Yorn share the below on his soundcloud account, saying:
“Watching last nights Grammy’s made me wanna share this with you….I recorded this (one of my all time favorite songs) a few months ago as part of a record of cover songs I’m putting together….perhaps you have seen me sing this song during past live shows…..this is SURFER GIRL….”
Turns out ol’ Pete has done a bloody fine job with this tune (one of my favourites). All crackly and warm, Brian and the boys would be proud. I’m pulling out my Beach Boys records right now, and looking forward to Pete’s covers album too.
