news great band that sounds a hell of a lot like smashing pumpkins but are amazing and catchy. i think these guys are the new pumpkins. Good song for newbies of them is lazy eye which has a riff that sounds like the 1978 riff.

I hear the influence big time. Thats the only reason I got their cd. I love it, but their songs are a bit samey samey. I just need to listen more.
Kind of a coincidence that Smashing Pumpkins and them are both SP bands.

Nope, i mean i hear an influence but i wouldn't say "they sound like the pumpkins"; Jimmy Chamberlin was never restricted to the same 4/4 beat throughout an entire song. The only similarities i can think of are nasal singer, chick bassist and a similar guitar tone in some songs. Silversun Pickups sound more like they're playing over a grid than the pumpkins ever did, if you know what i mean.

We should move this discussion to the other thread in the alt indie forum, i'll post this in there to.
