No Sleep Records up-and-comers Anakin  released their tribute to The Beach Boys, “Wouldn’t It Be Nice / God Only Knows”, in 2015. Anakin’s latest venture was made available via Kenobi Records; a label the band created earlier this year as an outlet to release various re-issues and rarities. The release corresponded with The Beach Boys biopic “Love & Mercy,” which hit theaters earlier this year.

We caught up with Anakin’s Brad Chancellor to ask about 2015 release he believed would be timeless classics.
