Violitionist recruits bands to play three songs and then proceeds to ask them a trio of questions—one of those should be, "Can we ask you unlimited questions?"—which they then post online for your viewing/listening/not-working-while-at-work enjoyment.
When the local gents in Hosannas rolled through Denton, Texas (easily the best city in that godawful state) they recorded a session for Violitionist, the highlight of which is their drowsy cover of the Beach Boys' "Don’t Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder)." It (quite literally) lacks the whistles and bells of the Pet Sounds' sessions, but it's a unique take on a song that still resonates to this day.
