Silversun Pickups Get Nostalgic For MTV Unplugged

The Los Angeles quartet showcased a number of Swoon songs when they stopped by the audience-free Spinner studio a few weeks ago. This time, complete with a string section, they’re sitting down in front of a few fans sans major amplification. MTV Unplugged feels like a remnant of the old MTV days, back when they made taste, etc. In that vein, the Pickups featured a few past Carnavas tracks, including “Well Thought Out Twinkles” and “Lazy Eye.” As you can tell by that screengrab, they had a good time doing it.

“Well Thought Out Twinkles”

“Lazy Eye”
