Exclusive Daily Download: "Fearanoia," Summer Hymns

A pleasantly smooth Beach Boys-esque track -- an exclusive free download.

Published December 1, 2006 8:01AM (EST)

This sweet song, with doubled vocals reminiscent of the Beach Boys that have some lovely chiming sounds behind them, is off of the new "Backward Masks" by Summer Hymns, a band whose music is almost always pleasantly similar to other contemporary bands -- Yo La Tengo, Wilco, the Flaming Lips or Mercury Rev -- without ever being quite as good. Toolshed also has two of the album's best tracks, "Start Swimming" and "Pity and Envy" available for free download.
