Los Angeles based Silversun Pickups third album `Neck Of The Woods` is the follow-up to 2009′s Grammy-nominated `Swoon`and although not a band associated with churning out countless mediocre albums every year, the industry recognition and adoring fan-base makes the band an integral part of the Alternative Rock scene during the last decade. Released a couple of weeks back, I was expecting a reply from their record company following a publicity email offering the album to review, I`m not gonna name and shame, people are busy, I do understand that but if that`s what you`re paid for – it`s a fail my friend. I`d admit to being relatively new to the Silversun Pickups, over exposure has never been a hindrance for them, maybe the odd single blasted by request on XFM. I`m posting track 8 `The Pit` purely for the harmonic essence, it`s very reminiscent of early `New Order` with lingering Hooky bass riffs and Bernard sumner`s lyrical knack of filling in vastly silent spaces – A gritty electronic post-punk enigma. A full album review posted errrr… sometime.
