Oregon Bike Trails - High School Love

The first album I ever owned was a Beach Boys 25th anniversary 5-cassette box set. I was probably about 9. I listened to those tapes until the magnetism wore to a thin little trickle.  My first ever concert was the Beach Boys “Kokomo” tour. Needless to say, no matter what I do, the Beach Boys will be with me forever.  So when I find music that puts that reverence on its heartsleeve, I’m sold.  Especially the earlier ‘oldies’ stuff like “Help Me Rhonda” and “409”.  

Enter Santa Monican songwriter Zach Yudin. This chill brah (the name of his blog, really!) is reviving those early beachy sounds with an authenticity I haven’t heard in a long while.  I’m in love.

Also, thanks to one of my favorite video aficionados dinoprossi for diggin’ this one up (and putting together the sweet video).
