You've probably heard Silversun Pickups, either specifically or as the background music in something. Their sound is kind of retro -- if you consider something that sounds like 15 years ago retro. (Modern culture has a faster metabolism for nostalgia, right?) The distortion. The loud-quiet-loud. The Smashing Pumpkinsness. It sounds like 1997. (See also: The Joy Formidable.)
Speaking of the 90s: Built to Spill is playing UCH August 29.
