Grand Isle

Brand new song from one of our favorite bands from 2010. Monofonus Press just released a one-sided 10" from Soft Healer, featuring the long-burning psych jam "Grand Isle" and their cover of the Zero Boys'"Civilization's Dying." Expect a full-length later this year; we couldn't be more excited...

God Only Knows

In 1966, Brian Wilson and lyricist Tony Asher penned one of the best love songs in pop history. Put to tape with a lead vocal by Carl Wilson, "God Only Knows" still shines after all these years. With that, have a happy Valentine's Day, and enjoy this Beach Boys demo recording from '67.
