Since Silversun Pickups' first release, 2006's Carnavas, the L.A.-based band has displayed a knack for crafting ear-catching singles like "Melatonin" and "Lazy Eye" that mix modern rock, shoegazey layers of distortion and poppy melodies. The group has caught the ear of Grammy Award nominators, radio DJs far and wide, and, of course listeners -- who pushed the band's latest effort, Neck Of The Woods, to the top of the iTunes charts. The band caught our ear too, when playing a few of its new songs live in the Soundcheck studio.
