Indie rock favorites Silversun Pickups have consistently released stellar albums since their 2006 debut, 'Carnavas,' and their latest is no different. Released last year, 'Neck of the Woods' contains all the dreamy layers of distorted guitar and shoegaze elements fans have come to expect from Silversun records.
Silversun Pickups are still on the road supporting their latest, 'Neck of the Woods,' and on Monday they hit the stage of 'Conan' to turn in a rousing performance of the album's new single, 'The Pit.' And yes, bassist Nikki Monninger -- who recently announced she will be temporarily leaving the group this fall to give birth to twin girls -- was still rocking with the band.
The Silversun Pickups' 'Neck of the Woods' album didn't exactly get a glowing review from Diffuser.fm when it arrived back at the beginning of May -- our writer described it as sounding "as familiar as macaroni and cheese, and leaves you feeling just as bloated." Does the disc's latest single, 'The Pit,' deserve to be on the menu?
