The Beach Boys’ New Song (Sort Of)

September 4, 2009 § Leave a comment

I was a late-comer to the joys of The Beach Boys. I’m still not their greatest advocate, but I appreciate their genius now and I always liked music influenced by The Beach Boys. Of those who admire the boys, is Florida’s Lane Steinberg, who has been active in various bands since around ’84. Wall of Orchids, a more recent musical endeavour, features some beautiful arrangements a la Brian Wilson. Perusing Steinberg’s youtube account (it’s either Steinberg or a really big fan), I found this ditty that features an unreleased track from the Pet Sounds sessions called “Trombone Dixie” except Lane Steinberg has turned it into a song! He sings (and does a fairly convincing Brian Wilson-esque job) and basically he makes a true-to-the-vision song out of it. I think it’s a real treat and his other songs on the account are worth looking up too.
