(psssst! don't tell my boyfriend)
...but these days, i am confident to say that i am completely smitten by a certain indie band from L.A.
ummm....have you heard of Silversun Pickups??
if not...DO check them out. they're a delicious, modern, fantastical indie-rock band blending sounds reminiscent of Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins, and a dash of Velvet Underground.
basically....pure, undeniable magic.
Needless to say, lead singers Brian Aubert and Nikki Monninger have completely stolen my heart. Their voices are beautifully harmonic and in sync with each other, and give their musical image that "certain something".
I've had the song "Rusted Wheel" playing on repeat in my car for 2 days straight now, and have zero intention so far of changing it.
so hop onto iTunes...head to your nearest record store...or check out their Myspace page. let me know what you all think!
