Yes, I know Silverson Pickups completely ripped off their sound from Smashing Pumpkins. It seems to be pointed out every time that the band is mentioned. It’s almost like an apology for playing them. Now, I’m not going to deny that but with the success of songs like Lazy Eye and Panic Switch, maybe it’s time to give them a bit of credit. They’re back with a new album, Neck of the Woods and while it doesn’t have anything as immediately accessible as the aforementioned singles, it shows the band experimenting a lot more. Not necessarily with their standard guitar sounds, but a lot more with rhythms and not really loading it with formulaic, radio friendly songs. I’m a little disappointed with it as I always enjoyed the radio singles but maybe I just need to give this album a little more time to sink in and digest.
