Probably posted before, but this track is such a beautiful nod towards Brian and the Pet Sounds album. Lovely vocals and instrumentation (notice the bass harmonica for example).

This is a stunning track.

And while you're at it, you might as well enjoy the other obvious Brian tribute from Athens, Georgia:

I love that song, and always thought (though this is a different topic) the album it's on, Up, is underrated.

I read in an interview that Michael Stipe used the word "smile" as a reference to smile...and they put the cello triplets at the end to sound like good vibrations and the bells and stuff to sound like pet sounds and chord inversions to sound like the beach boys too....apparently stipe isnt a beach boys fan but the other guys are huge fans....i believe mills or buck wrote liner notes for....sunflower? or some other album.

I think Peter Buck wrote the liners for Love You.

This seems as good a place as any to ask if anyone owns or has heard this:

That is a great song, thank you! As soon as I heard those drums, I could hear "God Only Knows". The vocal harmonies are very pretty. Adding it to my playlist. Thanks again!

What about the Around The World with Willy Fogg cartoon? From 1:22 the vocals get kinda Brian Wilson-y

I've had that forever, probably since it first came out. Haven't listened to it for ages though.
