first_imgEasily recognizable as one of the best albums of all time, The Beach Boys’ opus Pet Sounds celebrates its 50th anniversary today. Released on May 16th, 1966, Pet Sounds marks a distinct departure from the band’s light-hearted beach-themed music, as mastermind Brian Wilson steered the band down more complex channels of music.The album is heavily influenced by the psychedelic culture, perhaps even inspired by the contemporary Beatles records. Producer George Martin even said that “without Pet Sounds, there would be no Sgt. Peppers,” though the British band was certainly well on their way to hyper-produced albums when Pet Sounds was released. The pure sonic exploration of Pet Sounds is unrivaled by any other release in the Beach Boys’ catalog, as Brian Wilson spent countless hours producing the album, utilizing unique sound effects like Coke cans and piano strings throughout the release.With all of this in mind, Wilson himself took a moment to share his thoughts on the album’s milestone. Wilson said, “Today Pet Sounds was released 50 years ago. I just can’t believe it. I recorded it to bring love to the world and I’m honored to be performing it in so many countries and cities in 2016. My current band is just amazing. They are great singers and the very best musicians who replicate live every single show what I did in the studio 50 years ago! I’m just blown away by what I hear!”The post was accompanied by the following image:Here’s to another 50 years of Pet Sounds! Listen to the album below:last_img read more

first_img(ESPNCRICINFO) – LAURA Wolvaardt produced one of the innings of the tournament as South Africa rebounded from a tricky start against Pakistan to book their spot in the semi-finals.Wolvaardt struck a 36-ball half-century which lifted a stuttering innings into a total that proved too much for Pakistan who were missing captain Bismah Maroof after she was ruled out of the tournament with a finger injury.Pakistan had made the early running through another impressive new-ball spell from Diana Baig, and for much of the innings it appeared South Africa would struggle to make 120, but Wolvaardt, batting for the first time in the tournament, changed all that as she struck 33 off her last 15 deliveries with 29 runs coming off the last two overs.South Africa defended the total without the services of Marizanne Kapp, who missed the Thailand match with a respiratory infection and struggled after her innings on a warm day, as the remaining bowlers, led by Shabnim Ismail, applied consistent pressure to Pakistan’s top order which proved too much to handle.Baig set the tone for Pakistan’s victory against West Indies and she produced a similarly demanding spell here.The dangerous Lizelle Lee, who scored a century against Thailand, fell in the opening over when she edged an outswinger and in her third over – which became a wicket maiden – Baig had Dane van Niekerk dragging on.She thought she had removed van Niekerk in her previous over when the South Africa captain was given lbw, but the DRS showed the ball just missing leg stump.Not than van Niekerk had been especially confident of it being overturned – she was halfway off the ground before the ball-tracking confirmed her reprieve. Not that it lasted long. Baig’s opening spell finished with 3-1-13-2.Wolvaardt’s T20I career has not taken off in the way her ODI form has – where she averages 45 – and she has been handed a new role in the middle order for this tournament.Today’s innings may come to be viewed as a breakout moment for her. South Africa were 54 for 3 at the halfway mark when she walked in, and soon 64 for 4 when Kapp departed, and in desperate need of a strong second half.Woolvaardt produced a wonderfully measured innings, running hard – something not always seen in this tournament – and then finishing with a blaze of boundaries as she struck five of her last six deliveries for four.The crispness and power of her driving was outstanding, strong wrists enabling her to find gaps between and over fielders.Without Kapp, even more onus fell on Ismail and she responded with a two-over new-ball spell that put Pakistan on the back foot.She conceded just two runs off the bat and her second over was a wicket maiden when she induced Muneeba Ali to splicing a pull to mid-on.Pakistan did not help themselves with some poor running which brought the wicket of Umaima Sohail who hit the ball straight to cover and set off immediately, on for Javeria Khan to not move an inch.last_img read more
