Foxygen drummer Shaun Fleming, better known by his musical alter-ego Diane Coffee, has picked one of the best ways to welcome summer. In honor of Brian Wilson’s 72nd birthday, he released this dreamy cover of The Beach Boys “Kokomo.”
Fleming’s cover combines the tropical charm of the original with his own signature psychedelic haze. Ironically enough, Wilson was actually not involved in the writing of this particular Beach Boys tune. Perhaps this is why Fleming dedicated his darker rendition to Wilson, a musician know for his trippier tunes as his musical career progressed.
