Michael Carpenter Day



Michael Carpenter is an Australian singer/songwriter who has been releasing some of the finest power pop records of the last 20 years. His most recent is this year's "Ain't Nothing Left To Say" billed as Michael Carpenter and The Cuban Heels and it's one of the best records of the year. Carpenter also loves playing "songs of other people," and you can find these gems on his series called "Soop." Many of them are faithful to the originals, so you may wonder, why bother? I don't have a reasonable answer to that question. I just dig all of them. Here are two, both of originally recorded by the Beach Boys.

All of Carpenter's work can be found HERE. I recommend all of it.

Don't know about the cover as it doesn't bring anything new to the table but I dug the first cut enough to do some more digging. Thanks.

The first cut is a cover too. Obscure Beach Boys (which I actually recognized).
