I have to say that at this p r e-cise moment in time, I think "Three Seed" is probably the best song ever written. Maybe not, but seriously, if I end up going this year I must check these guys out.

ive only heard one song of theirs, but it sounded a lot like just a smashing pumpkins ripoff. i think it was called lazy eye or something.

they owe more than a little to the pumpkins, and my bloody valentine, yeah.

I caught them with Modest Mouse and Shins a few weeks ago in San Diego. They're decent live. I think on one of the smaller stages up close they might be better. I plan on catching them again if there aren't any conflicts.

The bass player needs some dancing lessons....

Speaking of The Shins, they're playing Amoeba on the 26th. I know I'm going.

I really recommend other tracks like Rusted Wheel, Three Seed, Well Thought Out Twinkles and Future Foe Scenario. Lazy eye is quite pumpkin-y.

I saw them live. They were ***tty good, except I didn't much like the girls. They didn't seem to add much at all, and what they did do was something anyone could do. I did like the singer, though.

"Waste it on" is my favorite track off Carnavas.

I watched a little bit of them last year because their name was endearing.
And they played "Lazy Eye" so that was a plus for me.

They were one of my most anticipated acts last year, but I was a tad disappointed. They're decent live, but the main stage in the middle of the day was just too damn hot to get excited.

This would account for a lot.

I know this is a year old post....but I would suggest that you have lot of music to listen to if anything by Silversun Pickups is the best song ever written

I think Silversun Pickups are better on their cd than live...but I still enjoy the music they put out.

They were playing as I was walking in and we were excited to see them but weren't feeling it. I saw them later in the summer and they ephing rocked!!!

I really wish the lead singer was a chick like everyone thought when lazy eye started getting airtime.

Every time someone asks me to describe their music, I tell them it's a cross between The Smashing Pumpkins and L7. Typically, they then tilt their head to the side like a puppy observing something strange to try to understand how that mix works.

My heart skipped a beat when I saw this thread. Thought they got added or something. Bastards!

Mine too. I saw them Last year in S.D. with Snow patrol. They were great. I really like Common Reactor.

i really enjoyed this band last year, and their album is great. they would be a great addition, but there's no reason to think it'll happen.

BFD? That show was sick! I was in the very front center. Cold War Kids were right before them too. That was awesome. They are both great live!

I was there too. But I was in the back when they played. I was only in the front for CSS, The Lovemakers and I was in the pit for Tiger Army. Is it just me or were Shiny Toy Guns not into it? I have to admit that Kaiser Chiefs were my favorite band the whole day. BFD is a good time. I been going every year since 2000.

I wish I could see them play 'Melatonin' live. Its an incredible start to that album (the story behind the lyrics is almost sickly-deep)
