The new Beach Boys single is heavily influenced by the band's Jesse And The Rippers period

The Beach Boys have released the title track from their upcoming album, That's Why God Made The Radio, and it's about what you'd expect: A slow, embalmed-sounding hunk of nostalgia that's highly derivative of the band's Jesse And The Rippers period. Because we're eternally hopeful Beach Boys fanatics—or perhaps just incredibly naive—we're not totally giving up on some intentional weirdness popping up on this record. But in the meantime, enjoy this sweet, thoroughly unintentional piece of Beach Boys weirdness. [via Entertainment Weekly]
