If I've made you a mix tape lately the Silversun Pickups have probably been on it in the form of the song Kissing Families. It is such a great tune. I particularly like the feedback/distortion crescendo near the end and the part where he screams the chorus. If I remember correctly I was turned onto this group by My Old Kentucky Blog a couple of months ago but I only grabbed this one song... Looks like I'm going to have to buy the album. They have a pretty nice website at http://www.silversunpickups.com be sure you check it out. You can check out their most excellent video at http://www.videocodezone.com/videos/s/silversun_pickups/kissing_families.html . It has it all, black eyes, floating bassists, beer, falling clocks and burning grilled cheese sandwiches. I've watched it about four times in a row. My butt has been kicked.
Does everyone know that I have a date with odida and the Fillmore? Ohh yes I'll be there one day.
