The Silversun Pickups have had an exciting 2009, and Swoon might be the year’s pinnacle. The band’s pulse-pounding combination of visceral Indie Rock finesse and Shoegaze thunder has been sharpened extraordinarily on its sophomore full-length CD. 

After just a month’s hiatus following nearly two solid years of touring, the foursome (Aubert, keyboardist Joseph Lester, bassist Nikki Monninger, drummer Christopher Guanlao) hit the studio to work on new material. As a result, Swoon bristles with Indie Rock passion, pummels with Hard Rock power and shreds with Grunge intensity, while simultaneously offering moments of nuanced delicacy.

They play Bogart's with Cage the Elephant and Manchester Orchestra. Get show details and Sound Advice here.
