Man, I was all set for a Strawberry Alarm Clock post, but then Loss Leaders pointed me in the direction of Petra Haden’s new cover of The Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows.” It’s done in the same style as her (completely awesome) a cappella version of The Who Sell Out – which is to say, just vocals. And awesomeness.

Petra also does a killer cover with The Decemberists…
