Customer Reviews

Original and Distinctive

I have to be honest and say I had never heard of SSPU until an appearance on "Later with Jools Holland" recently, but after listening to the two numbers they played on the show I was hooked. Carnavas is unique (to me anyway) because after the first couple of plays the songs seem familiar, as if you have been listening to them for years. Brian Aubert provides haunting vocals, whilst Nikki Monninger keeps the tracks moving along nicely with a thumping bass. There isn't a single track I dislike and my personal favourite is "Lazy Eye" that combines the aforementioned vocals, bass line and just so much passion. If you've not heard of Silversun Pickups try them, you might just like them.

Finally available in UK store

This Los Angeles-area band really can rock and you'll love this album. If you are looking for a few great songs to start, you can't go wrong with Lazy Eye and Well Thought Out Twinkles, but go ahead, buy the full album! If you are wanting some "who they are like" references, how does a mix of Smashing Pumpkins, My Bloody Valentine, and Joy Division with a modern indie flair sound?

great debut

saw these guys when they supported Snow Patrol at the Orlando Florida Hard Rock Gig. Absolutely awesome live set - check them out if you get chance - been waiting for this album for months (the EP they put out with 'lazy eye' and 'rusted wheel' on was enough to convince me to buy this album as it would undoubtedly be excellent) and after a couple of listens its a surefire winner.

The original handle reflected the fact that in the band's first lineup, lead guitarist Brian Aubert was romantically involved with drummer Elvira Gonzales, while rhythm guitarist Jack Kennedy was in a relationship with bassist Nikki Monninger....
