One day when playing “Rock Band 2” on my PS3 in 2008 the Silversun Pickups entered my world. It’s been part of it ever since.
‘Secret Meeting’ is the lead-off track from the 2005 release by Cincinnati, OH indie rock band The National called ‘Alligator’ and one of my favorite tracks of the aughts.
“Speak For Me” was a highlight on Cat Power’s 2003 indie rock release “You Are Free” and featured Dave Grohl on the rhythm section. It has P.J. Harvey-ish tendencies but is a masterpiece in Randy W. Hall’s book.
