Silversun Pickups - indie with a dose of grunge

Want dreamy, melodic, stonner, grungy tunes? Get a load of the Silversun Pickups. They've become one of my favourite indie rock outfits ever since i listened to the grungy-the breeders-like song, Well Thought Out Twinkles. It's raw, has a good riff, and a real good swing to it.
Silversun Pickups (SSPU) can be heard in this season's The OC. Tracks include Lazy Eye and Rusted Wheel. According to Eric Shea of Rhapsody.online, "the Silversun Pickups rightfully garner many a comparison to alt-rock '90s heroes the Smashing Pumpkins". Their album Carnavas was released last year (2006). I'm simply hoping to hear more of them soon, after their current Spring tour with Snow Patrol.
