Silversun Pickups On World Cafe

Silversun Pickups.

World Cafe welcomes back Silver Lake, Calif., band Silversun Pickups, whose new album, Better Nature, comes out Friday. The shoegazey band's 2006 debut, Carnavas, contained modern-rock staples like "Lazy Eye" and "Well Thought Out Twinkles," and was a major success that started the band on its way.

Three albums later, founding members Brian Aubert and Nikki Monninger visit World Cafe to discuss how gentrification has changed Silver Lake and how parenthood has affected Silversun Pickups' music. Hear the conversation and some new songs at the audio link on this page.
