Brainwaves – July 11, 2017 – Brian Wilson smiles

When the new Brian Wilson bio pick Love and Mercy came out a few years ago, it made me want to revisit my Beach Boys collection – in particular the Smile sessions. This week’s Brainwaves features the opening two tracks from the Brian Wilson version of the album. Plus Guster, the Talking Heads, Lords of the New Church, Stereolab, the Slants and much more.

Visit the Brainwaves page on andHow.FM for times to listen live or on-demand.
