Product Description

The third album from Los Angeles fuzz-rockers Silversun Pickups, Neck of the Woods (due May 8) started with a chance meeting when the band stumbled across Grammy-winning producer Jacknife Lee (R.E.M., U2, Weezer) while recording guest vocals for a Snow Patrol track. But Pickups frontman Brian Aubert is quick to point out that pretty much everything about the album -- from producer to studio location right down to its found-photo album art -- has been serendipitous. "It's bizarre," the affable singer/guitarist tells SPIN, a day after hearing the record in full for the first time. "We can't take credit for any of it. It just accidentally happened."

For one example of a happy accident, Aubert was surprised to discover Lee's home studio was smack in the middle of the Topanga Canyon woods, minutes from where the singer grew up. "I hadn't been back in years," he recalls. "I thought it would be fun to walk down my old street. It was like playing with fire a little bit. So much came back that I had forgotten about and it was a really emotional experience. I just realized this place and the feelings I had are still ingrained in me."

Aubert says the songs sound "like a horror movie," all of them beginning to percolate while he was country-hopping and people-watching during a European vacation. "[2009's] Swoon was more about what I was feeling at that particular time," he says, "whereas with this one, I wanted to see what built me. It was learning why I am the way I am."

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.78)
- 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Brian Aubert injects wispy drama, balancing moppy-haired brooding and bracing alt-rock moves."

Alternative Press (p.80)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "WOODS is much darker and more nuanced than anything else in the Pickups' catalog....[The album] feels complete -- and essential."

Billboard (p.48)
- "The album's peak comes near the end, where the band treats 'Gun-Shy Sunshine' with a perfect balance of tension and sonic space."

Kerrang (Magazine)
(p.53)
- "[A] technically masterful record replete with multilayered flourishes from frontman and guitarist Brian Aubert."
