America’s band, indeed.

Johnny Morgan’s fully illustrated retrospective, “The Beach Boys: America’s Band,” is out this week. And the timing is perfect: 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the classic “Pet Sounds” and the groundbreaking hit “Good Vibrations.”

Also this week: Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein offers up her memoir, “Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl,” and Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey join together to tell “The Who: Official History.”
