Silversun Pickups

I was lucky enough to come across Silversun Pickups’ self-released EP last year and was immediately smitten with the band’s relaxed take on rock ‘n’ roll’s melancholic side, and how, as they put it “get loud, get quiet, get ugly, get pretty.” I’m also lucky Joe didn’t beat me to this band, like he did with fellow shipmates, Earlimart.

  1. This is some of the best rock i have heard in some time. Is that a female vocalist? I love her faux-manly voice. And if it’s a male vocalist, i love his faux-girly voice.

  2. I like this a lot. I heard it in a shop the other day (Topshop, of all places!) and I’ve been trying to track it down ever since. But does it remind anyone else of Biffy Clyro?

  3. Kissing Families Silversun Pickups lyrics
    Artist: Silversun Pickups
    Album: Pikul
    Year: 2005
    Title: Kissing Families Print
    Correct
    Stop the season stop the sting
    a plastic mic a broken string
    infected wound from a rusty ring
    soon you’ll be there too
    kissing families can’t recall
    a program to derail us all
    forgotten prison it’s been safe ’til now
    it’s no wonder that we did it this way
    keep looking forward on paths sideways
    it’s everything that is connected and beautiful
    and now i know just where i stand
    move on
    roll along
    not today
    it’s everything that is connected and beautiful
    and now i know just where i stand
    thank god you’re heart is too close
    this can be the bitter end
    i know it wont
    well someone said i made a mistake
    kept looking forward on paths sideways
    it’s everything that is connected and beautiful
    and now i know just where i stand
    seasons always shift too late
    spent too much time now on paths sideways
    everything that is connected and beautiful
    and now i know just where i stand
    thank god it’s over….

  4. Best indie rock album of the year? Please! I dont think so. Hudson Bell’s When the sun becomes the moon is the best album of the year. sspu buzz band perhaps? Thought about buying the album till i found out they appeared on one tree hill. yuk!!!!! Lazy eye is their best song and its totally sounds like earlimart. seriously how sad

  5. I am loving these guys. It grabbed me in the first chords. It's what I miss from the 90's indie movement. When music was awesome and made you feel something.
