L.A. alt rockers Silversun Pickups got in on the Black Friday action by releasing the “Seasick” 10”. Check out the eponymous lead track after the jump.
The “Seasick” 10” is out now on Dangerbird.
Sorry Pickups, I’m too busy listening to the Siamese Dream reissue…
This band needs a severe reality check.
Its rocks to me, as does SSPU period. And this coming from a Smashing Pumpkins fan.
I’d give it a 5/10 or 6/10 as maximum, definitely not as good as their first single from their previous album. Sounds like something that was born without inspiration.
I was really into them after I listened to Carnavas, but I just can’t get into this or Swoon.
i think its a shame that SSPU got so much flak for sounding like the Pumpkins. When Carnavas dropped Corgan was flogging the dead horse that was Zeitgeist (i really wanted to believe they were back i really did)
fast forward to when swoon arrived and it almost felt like the band was trying to sound as un-smashing pumkins as possible- turning in an album that sounded both confused and utterly bland
this track however, its got my attention. if they can capture the magic of Kissing Families, Lazy Eye & Melatonin then count me in.
It’s not a bad song. I think D’Arcy rang that radio station about them cos the singer and bass sound very similiar to herself IMO.
