I’ve been pouring over the most recent release from Silversun Pickups Swoon for the past couple of days, and am enjoying it for the most part. Sure, some of it sounds like The Smashing Pumpkins when the Pumpkins were great, but can we fault them for that? Maybe a little, but there’s more to Silversun Pickups. I’m really curious as to how this record is going to be received by the general public. The band has acheived a bit of commercial success with their previous record, and I think that Swoon might challenge the listeners a bit.
The impact that Swoon has is yet to be seen, but I will have to admit that “Panic Switch” is a great, feel good, rock song. The kind of song that you and your friends can sing along to, rock out in the car, and use for the soundtrack to your youthful summer excursions. I long for those days.
I know it’s not summer yet, but by the time this song hits momentum, the sun and festival season will be ripe, and SSPU will be on the lips of many.
