Re: Silversun Pickups

They're alright. I know a bit of history about the band but it's nothing you couldn't find on Wikipedia these days. I'm going to say this anyway even though you said don't bother - I'm not a huge fan of the guys voice. It's kind of a combination of nasally and raspy to me which in my opinion works well for some songs but not others. As far as working for a skate part, it depends on the flow of the skater and vibe of the video. I'd also like to consider myself a bit of a music video buff so I'll post a few:






i'm not really a fan of his voice either.  they're ok.  i've seen them before around town.  have been kind of surprised at how well they're doing, but good for them

i live within walking distance from the shopping center where their name comes from
For the same reasons people hate his voice, makes the fans love his voice I guess. Its just different or whatever. I like the smooth but but fucking loud distorted guitar, and the infectious rhythms that burst through all that noise:

oh and the lyrics give my goose bumps

do most Silversun Pickups fans not know who Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Dinosaur Jr., Spacemen 3, Yo La Tengo, Jesus & Mary Chain, Flaming Lips,  Cocteau Twins, etc. are? not trying to insult your taste or anything, but i'd rather listen to the bands that inspired the Pickups.
I really like the bands I put in bold^^(don't know the others) and its funny you say that because the only inspiration I've heard about SSPU is the Smashing Pumpkins. And if you mean that they are in the same genre or whatever I don't consider that inspiration, plus the have changed their sound over the years. For example their very first EP "Pikul" is slow and soft but obviously know they are loud and sound like SP and their newest album "Neck of the Woods" took another turn. Im not a huge fan of the newest album.

dude, you have to listen to these 3 bands at least







all three of these bands were around in the 80s. they pretty much created that whole shoegaze, spacey psychedelic, dream pop sound.

hmmmm I respect the roots but I don't like living in the past. The SSPU have a more modern sound I guess. I hate arguing about tastes in music but it was really hard not to laugh during the last video. I think the Silversun Pickups deffinatly learned form their^^ sounds but in my opinion they made it a million times better.

i don't really like listening to too much older music right now either, but that last sentence is pretty ignorant. i'm sure you only listened to the songs and called it a day. if it's not for you, that's fine, but Loveless is considered one of the greatest albums of all time. take the time to actually give it a shot. Kevin Shields of MBV is a brilliant musician and their whole sound influenced so many bands.

you don't even have to download it to listen. just click on this.



(seriously though, do yourself a favor and give the album a fair shot. it's a beautiful piece of music.)
I am very ignorant when it comes to music history. Ill give the album a listen, thank you for posting the whole thing
