Well if you thought Panda Bear or the Super Furry Animals sounded a lot like The Beach Boys, you might want to check out this unsigned indie band called The Explorers Club. Not to be confused with the prog rock band of the same name on Magna Carta Records, these guys are recreating Brian Wilson & Co with such flawless sounds that you might almost think they were a cover band. Despite the distinct California vibe, they actually hail from South Carolina. They don't necessarily score points for originality, but I for one can't wait to hear a full length album from them. Plus they've already had some of their music played during both The O.C. and How I Met Your Mother, so you can bet they're not going to remain unsigned much longer! Their debut EP is currently available for download via the iTunes music store.
