Silversun Pickups - Download WOXY Lounge Act

Sadly, I was unable to attend either of Silversun Pickups' recent NYC shows (it hurt), but I was able to listen to their WOXY lounge act today, which was one of the best I've ever heard. They f'in shreaded. I'm still not completely in love with Carnavas (we're still dating), but the songs off of Carnavas that they played today sounded immense and (imho) far better than they sound on the album. They better come back again for CMJ this year (their performance at The Fader House was one of my favs last year), because I need to hear more of Carnavas played live. Here's the info about today's lounge act via WOXY:

We've been looking forward to having the Silversun Pickups in the Lounge since we first heard the "Pikul" EP. "Kissing Families" certainly became a staple of the WOXY.COM airwaves within a short period of time and remains a heavily requested tune.

This 4-piece from Los Angeles have been friends for years and just put out their debut full-length album called "Carnavas" on Dangerbird Records.

We caught the band on a day off while they were on their way to the Midwest Music Summit in Indianapolis. They played 4 tracks off the new album and also included "Kissing Families" into their set.
