Today is the 77th birthday of Brian Wilson! Many consider Pet Sounds to be his masterpiece and it is certainly  one of the most influential albums in music history. Today we are looking for two Shadow versions of two different songs from Pet Sounds.

Song one is probably the most covered song on Pet Sounds. Sung by crooners and pop artists of all genres, the Shadow artist today rose to stardom a decade after the Beach Boys. He was a musical chameleon whose breakthrough album embodied an alter-ego androgynous character.

Song two is a lesser known track that is likely about Brian Wilson’s own feelings of social alienation. Our Shadow band is from Oakland, CA, known  for a vintage sound that incorporates elements of doo-wop, classic R&B, garage psych, and surf. Speaking of surf; part of their name could be steamed or fried at a seafood restaurant.
