Alt-rock quartet Silversun Pickups may not be a household name, but their notoriety is certainly on the rise. Following a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist in 2009, the band released three well-received albums and toured internationally almost without pause, packing venues at every stop. Their latest romp will bring them to Garden City for a show at Revolution Concert House in support of their most recent studio album, Better Nature (New Machine Recordings, 2015).
Vocalist/guitarist Brian Aubert wrote on the band's website, "This record is as indie as it gets," and on first listen, it's hard to argue—the album has a '90s throwback vibe, mixing happy-go-lucky hilarity with rare moments of oddball introspection, and SP recorded the whole thing in 30 days. To put it succinctly: The search for something strange and wonderful ends here.
