So, this is the year Joost is coming, eh?http://www.joost.com/
By the way, I always wondered, why 'Biscuit Power'? I figured it had something to do with the Beach Boys, but can't work out what.
Congratulations on moving to a new house, Joost! So your dream or plan has realized!

It's been a long, dry spell since I've heard any artist who consistently and competently manages to capture the magic of The Beach Boys in modern-day music. But now, like rain descending on a scorched desert, here comes The Explorer's Club, and their album Freedom Wind, which is everything I could've wished for in a Beach Boys album, tribute or otherwise. The band, which consists of Jason Brewer, Jimmy Faust, Dave Ellis, Wally Reddington, Stefan Rogenmoser, and Neil Thomas, tap into the zeitgeist of Brian Wilson and Co. so completely, so coolly, that with just a little tweak of the imagination, it's not hard to imagine the second coming of The Beach Boys while listening. It's not just that the band strives so hard to capture the sound of the sixties in their production touches, it's how successfully they grasp the feeling of the times - the innocence and decadence - startlingly shown in the juxtapositions of "Honey, I Don't Know Why" with its turbulent growl nicely offsetting the sweet, Wilson-esque "Don't Forget The Sun" which is so sweet and easy that you'd swear it's a lost track off The Beach Boys' *Friends*. Or the very cool, stripped down harmonic acrobatics of "Lost My Head," which sounds as if it came from the trippy Smiley Smile sessions. In fact, half of the fun, and the joy of listening to Freedom Wind is pinpointing exactly which album The Explorer's Club is emulating, and they do it so well - "Do You Love Me" has the dry, synthesized whine found on Love You before morphing into something sweeter and hookier on the chorus; or the Pet Sounds instrumental "Summer Air" which glides by so serenely and perfectly that it's become one of my favorite tracks on the album. This is a band who "gets" Brian Wilson in the same way the Wondermints do - triple threats who can write, sing and play original music just like The Beach Boys would've in their prime; and that's saying a whole bunch. I've just fallen in love with these guys - a superb, near-perfect album. Also available as part of their first digital download single is a bonus track, "Carry On", which sounds like something Dennis Wilson might have penned for his Pacific Ocean Blue.
