Our last Silversun Pickups post had a Joaquin Phoenix directorial credit attached to it. This was before he embarrassed himself on Letterman. The Los Angeles band’s “Panic Switch” appears to be Phoenix free, but frontman Brian Aubert’s androgynous vocals (and overall vocal harmonies) remain Breeders-esque, and the band’s sound ’90s alternative. Because some things don’t change. The track’s from the Pickups’ forthcoming second album Swoon. Like their debut, it was produced by Dave Cooley.
Swoon is out 4/13 via Dangerbird.
