Shannon and the Clams, Holy Wave Cover the Beach Boys on ‘A Tribute to “Pet Sounds”‘

This year marks 50 years since the Beach Boys released their iconic Pet Sounds in 1966. In January, the beloved Brian Wilson announced a 50th Anniversary World Tour, where he’ll be playing the album in its entirety for the final time; one of those dates includes Austin, Texas’ Levitation Festival (f.k.a. Austin Psych Fest). To help celebrate, Levitation founder The Reverberation Appreciation Society is releasing the compilation, A Tribute to Pet Sounds, available May 27.

The collection features 15 artists, some of which will be playing Levitation, and consists of the original 13 Pet Sounds songs along with two bonus tracks: “Good Vibrations” and “Hang On To Your Ego.” The tribute album is expected in May, but you can listen now to Holy Wave’s and Shannon & The Clams’ covers of “That’s Not Me” and “I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times,” respectively. Pre-order the album April 1 or grab a copy at Levitation Festival.
