I was trying to describe Will C's mixtape, Adieu or Die, to music editor Steve Seigel the other day and I had some trouble. The closest thing I could come with is that if you'd like to hear a DJ Shadow-ish collage-style take on the music of Brian Wilson, with interviews, studio chatter, occasional rapping, and other found sounds thrown in the mix. It's definitely an interesting listen, especially if you have some affection for the Beach Boys discographer circa Pet Sounds. Plus, it's a free download including a snappy digital booklet, so that helps.
The reunited Beach Boys are scheduled to kick off their 50th anniversary tour at Casino Del Sol on April 24th.
