Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo brought along an a capella group for this rendition. This song just slays me every time I hear it. If it’s possible The Beach Boys may be the only group in music history that is both underrated and overrated at the same time. Pet Sounds along with a few other albums are so remarkably good that it’s easy to look past a lot of the shit they released.
In many ways this is also like Weezer. I’m convinced that Pinkerton is the Pet Sounds for my generation. There I said it. This was performed as part of Stereogum’s Decomposted series, which brings musicians into a studio to play stripped down versions of their songs. (I still think I prefer My Old Kentucky Blog’s Laundro Matinee, but whatevs)
