Their first album, 2006's 'Caravanas' threw them headfirst into the tumbling world of popular music and though it crept out of nowhere, it's now one of SG's most enjoyed records, even if there's only a few from it we admittedly repeat.

One of those is of course probably still their most famous track to date and this weeks Video Of The Week; Lazy Eye.

From the intro chords to the humongous and vastly rewarding break about half-way through to the final instrumental sprint; the track is epic in the best way possible and it immediately solidified Silversun Pickups as a band to watch to for future prospects.

Their follow-up, this years Swoon was also an enjoyable affair, not necessarily kicking up as much fuss as the debut did but still following their unique, hazy, gentle-but-angry sound flawlessly.

This video here is taken from their live session with SPIN magazine back in 2006 and though they look tired as hell (just look at the sweaty, matted hair and pale face of vocalist Brian Aubert) they absolutely nail every note and, well, all we're going to say is watch it all as even the final few minutes are a work of unblemished musicianship and talent (Aubert's screaming and strumming is just insane).
