My third Flaming Lips post in a row, but this one surprisingly has nothing to do with Record Store Day. In celebration of the Beach Boys’ 50th anniversary, UK music mag MOJO has compiled an original track-for-track Pet Sounds tribute album featuring folks like Saint Etienne, Gaz Coombes, Here We Go Magic, and those ever-busy Flaming Lips. Listen to their version of “God Only Knows” below.

01 Saint Etienne – “Wouldn’t It Be Nice”

03 The Sand Band – “That’s Not Me”
