Adieu Or Die

Will C.

FREE download...

A collection of The Beach Boys classics rewired for the computer age. Featuring lo-fi and left field takes on material from "Surf's Up," "Smile," "Wild Honey," "20/20," "Sunflower," "15 Big Ones," "Pet Sounds," "Love You," "Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!)" and more.

"The goal of this project is to rework selections from The Beach Boys catalog and give them a new, unexpected aesthetic. I want it to be a means for many to prick their ears up about an often overlooked larger body of work from one of music's most interesting groups, as well as a means for the long time fans with open minds to hear re-imagined versions of beloved material." - Will C.

Boston-based producer and Mr. Magic protégé reworks Beach Boys catalog on a FREE “fan-mix” album, to stunning effect

“'Adieu or Die' isn’t a few 'Pet Sounds' tracks with new drums on top; it’s a heavily researched, quietly ambitious, and brilliantly crafted work in its own right... – Boston Globe, Martin Caballero

“Dangermouse became a household name by reconstructing the Beatles illegally, and Dilla himself once took a go at reworking Pet Sounds, but Boston’s Will C takes his source material to new dimensions of trippy, sun-soaked instrumental hip-hop. The download comes with killer art, intricate liners and bonus cuts, all gratis, which should keep C outta court and bump his profile up a notch or 10. Rating: 9.5 out of 10." – Montreal Mirror, Darcy MacDonald

“Incredibly thoughtful [and] well-researched.” – WFMU’s Beware of the Blog, Noah Uman
