Listen to Chris Schlarb's take on The Beach Boys' 'Til I Die', featuring Sufjan Stevens

by New Music Team, 02 May 2013

Taken from Chris Schlarb's forthcoming Psychic Temple II album, 'Til I Die' is a cover of one of The Beach Boys' lesser known tracks (Fact: It's one of the few Beach Boys songs which both the words and music were written solely by Wilson - thanks Wikipedia) and features the ever-brilliant Sufjan Stevens.

From the moment the drums soothly enter your headspace, you'll be aware that this isn't a standard take on the track, but beautiful and touching nonetheless.

If this floats your boat (we had to throw in a nautical reference), then we suggest you grab the album when it's released on July 16th via Asthmatic Kitty. It features two more covers, plus a bunch of exciting collaborations.

It's not enough to try and contend with the slippery criteria that determines the greatest songs ever, the greatest albums ever, the greatest bands/artists/musicians ever, we need to push on and know who has the best snappy lyric or the best album cover until all music is created just to further this pursuit of statistical perfection...
