I can't remember who first introduced me to Silversun Pickups, but I like to listen to them when I want to rock out. They are coming out with a new album April 14th.
P. Diddy says (on twitter) that they are his favorite rock band!
If you like Silversun Pickups, definitely check out Earlimart! They have a similarish kind of sound (more mellow and low key though), and they're also from Silver Lake aaaaand they're friends with Silversun Pickups.

I love their video for Lazy Eye. It's just really simple and sweet....and I wish I could be the girl in the video!
