If the Explorers Club sounds like the Beach Boys, it meant to do that
CREATIVE LOAFING The Explorers Club "began in Atlanta while [Jason] Brewer was holed up with friend and collaborator Troy Stains. They recorded two songs: a straight-forward rock number for his band, and another tune called 'Forever' that was deliberately crafted to evoke the pop tones and intricacies of Phil Spector and Brian Wilson's early recordings. 'I took the songs back to Charleston and everyone liked the Phil Spector/Brian Wilson one much more,' he says. 'After that, I decided to just start a band in that style.'"
