I first heard Silversun Pickups a year ago on WOXY radio and fell in love. I got the chance to see them in a mostly empty venue during CMJ last year in NYC. I was easily the only crazed, rockin' out fan there but I had a complete blast. Their Pikul EP from last year topped my best of '05 list. This years Carnavas doesn't disappoint either.
Here's the video for "Kissing Families" (Pikul EP, 2005)
