Silversun Pickups Remix/Tour


Silversun Pickups
The Silversun Pickups are getting a little makeover in time for the holiday season. With debut Carnavas (Dangerbird Records) still going strong, two of the album tracks have been remixed. The various revamped versions of radio hit "Lazy Eye," as well as "Little Lovers So Polite," are dance-floor ready compliments of the likes of Jimmy Tamborello (Postal Service), label mate The One AM Radio and KCRW's Jason Bentley, among others. The six-song EP will become available digitally in the U.S. December 11, exclusive on iTunes, followed by the worldwide release December 18, also on iTunes.

With newly added blips, bleeps and pulses, "Lazy Eye" takes on a new shape in four different versions, yet remains true to the original, melodies and Aubert's distinct vocals intact. One version of "Little Lovers So Polite" integrates steady drumbeats into its electronic grooves while the other thumps with distorted vocals and heavy synthesizers.

A year after their acclaimed debut, the second radio single, "Well Thought Out Twinkles" continues to climb radio charts, this week jumping to #11 on the Modern Rock chart, poised to reach the Top 10.

Silversun Pickups will end off their busy year with a handful of shows across the U.S.

these guys are pretty cool. i saw them play w/dead meadow and wolfmother, wolfmother stole the show, but silversun has one guy whose only job seems to be to manipulate effects for the singer/guitarist. lots of far out noise and stuff...

and fyi jimmy tamborello is also known as dntel. his newer work is similar to his postal service stuff, but his older albums are kickass electronica w/out any vocals. "something always goes wrong" is one of my favorite electronic albums ever.
