Record Listening: Pet Sounds

Sunday, October 27, 2019

Listen together to The Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds."

Join the vinyl revival! Enjoy The Beach Boys’ revolutionary “Pet Sounds” at a record listening party hosted by Greg Sutherland of House of Records. 

When the band toured Japan in 1966, Brian Wilson recruited the cream of the city’s studio musicians to record a group of experimental and relatively melancholy songs. The other Beach Boys worried that the new material strayed too far from their formula; they felt vindicated when America did not embrace it. But in the longer term, “Pet Sounds” has become an undeniable pop masterpiece, considered a monument to Wilson’s tortured soul.
