Are tractors in a barn the first thing you think of when you hear The Beach Boys‘ “Cabinessence?” In case you actually thought about it for a second the answer is no. Philadelphia-based Mock Suns, who are known for playful antics such as giving away chocolate masks molded from their faces, decided that maybe you should think of tractors when listening to the dreamy 20/20 jam.
If you take the chance to listen to some of Mock Suns original work, it is easy to see that surreal 1960s music – such as Brian Wilson’s more daring work – is an obvious influence. The band works through the cover in an almost effortless manner, making it seem all the more organic.
