Premptive-Anti-Silversun Pickups-Backlash-Campaign December 7, 2006

Posted by alexd in Buzz band, Look What I Just Found, Music, Video.

silversun pickupsThere not Canadian, they have a song a VW advert, and everyone loves them. It’s inevitable, but I won’t be alone in slipping this into any “favourite album of the year” lists that will be popping up like spots on a teenagers face in the coming weeks. I tipped you off about this LA indie/grunge foursome last week or 2. A possible instigator of this backlash, may be their next single. You can just hear pitchfork sharpening their knives after ripping a hole in the album like some old sail. Its not meant for you! Everything is not meant for your too cool for school leanings, go back to your room and listen to your Decemberist album for the 10,000th time and cry yourself to sleep because when you go to parties they never play any good music.

To paraphrase musicforants.com:

“The explosion of sound that occurs at 2:46 here is one of the best moments in a 2006 song. It’s even better live with the band extending the final guitar part for minutes beyond what the studio version gives you.”

And since we are hardcore here, below is the album version of the video. Enjoy!

Silversun Pickups- Lazy Eye

And since it looks like it wont be released anytime in the uk soon.

Download: Silversun Pickups- Lazy Eye [highly recommended]

Also because your cool scenestar.net notes:

“Oh, and btw

he may kill me…

..however, my cousin Hank May is the star of the latest Silversun Pickups video for the song “Lazy Eye.” My heart swelled with pride when I saw him. By far, this is the raddest thing to happen in my family. We have all watched this roughly a million times in the past week.

Here’s a link to the video:


He’s the one who a) is male and b) comes in midway through, with a leather jacket slung over his shoulder. He is also a brilliant songwriter.”

Myspace: silversun pickups don’t need anymore friends

P.S. I’m really sad and I’ve transcribed “Well Thought Out Twinkles”, expect to find that on ultimate guitar in the distant future on my current record.
