Silversun Pickups

Los Angeles, CA
I can’t exactly pinpoint why, but when I listen to Silversun Pickups I’m always reminded of early Smashing Pumpkins. Maybe it’s the distorted guitars and the raspy vocals. Whatever it is, it’s a good thing. This L.A. quartet just released Carnavas on Dangerbird Records last month and made a video for "Well Thought Out Twinkles.” I’m seeing them with Viva Voce at Iota on October 10.
