I never have anything bad to say about my hometown friends Silversun Pickups - every piece of music they have produced I have loved. When I moved back to Los Angeles in 2005, I was so excited to NOT be working at a major label anymore, and I dove into the local independent music scene that was blossoming in Silverlake at that time - and Silversun Pickups were at the forefront of that scene. I went to every show @ The Echo or Spaceland and finally....finally became part of something and somewhere where I was comfortable....I found home!
Years later, album 3 - Neck Of The Woods - is about to drop on May 8th, and I still love this band. I love being part of the East LA community, and my once idols now turned friends deserve all the best! It has been a pleasure watching their career become what it is now! You can stream the album on soundcloud now....and in regular SSPU fassion, it does not dissapoint!
