Though still in its infancy, San Francisco’s Painted Palms has already garnered a lot of buzz for itself with its first EP Canopy and their recent touring with Of Montreal. Cousins Reese Donohue and Christopher Prudhomme continue to build their reputation with this cover of Dirty Projectors’ “I Will Truck.”

Painted Palms pay homage to the capriciousness of the original tune. The two layer vocals and dizzying synth in an eerily similar way to that of Animal Collective, all while adding their own brand of glossy California beach pop. Even if you don’t have the luxury of being anywhere near a beach, this cover will at least allow you an aural vacation. (via I Guess I’m Floating)
